A pain in the Howgills

After walking up nearby Winder and Arant Haw from the back of Sedbergh I was feeling pretty pleased with myself, as I have had little exercise this year (apart from walking to and from the pub in the village). Having exceeded 2000 feet of ascent the mist began to roll in, slowly obscuring the spectacular view out to Morecambe Bay. The descent turned into an agonising experience due to a sudden severe pain in my left knee which didn’t seem to be caused by anything specific.
That is now my third injury of the year so hopefully I now have a full set and can on with things albeit at the pace of someone 30 years older than I actually am. I wouldn’t mind so much but the fells in the area are known as ‘the gentle Howgills’.
