Well that was a hoot. Pete invited me to Leicester to walk the 35 miles loop called the Ivanhoe Way.

We set out at 6:30am and finished a while later at 7:45pm. A wee while into the hike I started to feel sore footed. Early onset blisters. After 20 miles these were well formed and starting
to cause issues, then they popped and all hell broke loose. The final 15 miles were just not fun at all and in the end I had to gut it out and complete the loop.

Left foot blisters
