Got burned a bit on my arms today as I did the 16 mile walk I was going to do last week. It's basically the same Leicestershire 3 peaks walk I did in April, but with a couple of alterations. Took it slow and steady and managed to finish in about 7 and a half hours. The weather was great and I had fun today even though it was a long one.
I feel like training is going well, and even though I get achy legs and sore feet I am feeling a bit more confident about this long walk I've got planned.

|The War Memorial in Bradgate Park - Summit 1|
|I shared Summit 2 (Beacon Hill) with some horny beasts!|
|LOADS of bluebells out today|
|Beacon Hill trig point - Summit 2|
|Two cooling towers in the distance at Radcliffe on Trent Power Station? Today's factoid is: There's actually eight, but when it was built they were all aligned so only two would be visible from Beacon Hill|
|The only view I could get from the top of Bardon Hill - Summit 3|
|More cows giving me evils again!|
|At last, Bradgate Park comes into view and I'm on the home straight|
Tunes on the MP3 player today included 'New York Girls' by Bellowhead and 'Think for a Minute' by The Housemartins.
