I’d been ill for the last three weekends, initially with a throat and chest infection that firstly drained all the energy from me and then left me with a hacking cough and phlegm everywhere (which is nice!), this was later replaced with a mild flu or cold, which kept me inside feeling sorry for myself. As such, I was feeling a little trepidation about today’s walk – would my legs be up to carrying my increased weight up these hills? A pretty good day weather wise, high white clouds for most of the later sections, but overcast on the summit.
