Winter Hill – 07 Sept

This time last year I was in the middle of doing too much and building up a collection of injuries that took a while to get over. This year I am anxious to avoid a repeat and having decided to substitute The Ben with the Grisedale Horseshoe. I then began to wonder about recovery before the Mountain Trial the following weekend and decided to substitute Grisedale with an easy run up and down Winter Hill. Next week will tell if I am right to do much less before “The Trial”.

A ‘too early’ start meant catching the last of the overnight rain with the cloud base still below 1000 feet and concealing the views from the summit. Wasn’t worth carrying a camera so I grabbed some snaps with my phone.
