A glorious day - the final proper training day before I start the Southern Upland Way next weekend. I had planned a longer circuit of the Bowland Fells, but decided to cut it short at the head of Fiendsdale. I followed a lovely path back down the valley floor and this was the highlight of the day - one path I will certainly be using again, to complete this circuit. Foot feels good, better than ever in fact and that's given me confidence for the long walk to come.
