Weekend Yomps

Yesterday morning Big P and i had planned to go for a countryside yomp (yomp: enthusiastic walk, lots of arm swinging and kendal mint cake). The weather turned out to be fairly perfect (cold but dry) and despite feeling fairly full of cold, we set off up to our starting point, Teggs Nose. The route was to be a nice 9 mile loop that took us through Macclesfield Forrest, and up unnecessarily large hills. It stayed dry until the last mile, which incidently turned out to be very uphill, when it decided to hail. All in all a very nice, semi-demanding yomp that cleared the cobwebs and highlighted just how unfit father and daughter are.
