Low Lawton to Askew Rigg Farm

The sun actually got out this morning and it was a pleasure to run through the Lake District in a decent temperature.

The first challenge of the day was to take an impromptu toilet visit in a field at the foot of Whinlatter Pass. Apologies to the respective farmer and his rather shocked cows.

Whinlatter Pass was one of the highlights of the whole run, despite being very steep. But as I always say, for every up hill there's always a down hill to follow.

I made it into Keswick for lunch and being the fitness freak that I am, opted for Fish and Chips. There was just time for an hour's shopping with Katy and then it was onto the A66 via Blencathra to the 40 mile point.
