All training and no planning...

...makes Sarah and Sue very dull girls indeed
(not the most convincing argument - but it worked for us)

Sarah's Sneaky training

My friends, D&S, were visiting one weekend and - as the weather suited it and they were aware that I'm in desperate need of all the training I can get - we headed out to Derbyshire for a gentle stroll...

We started out on the Tissington Trail but veered off (following my trusty AA book of Derbyshire walks) to cross the valley to the lovely village of Parwich before crossing back to stroll through Tissington to the cars. The guide book said that it was a medium diffulty walk (meaning a few hills and generally crossing fields rather than well-marked paths) - with "lots of stiles". What it didn't say was that many of this large number of stiles (and there really were lots) were mini assault courses:

Still, it was a lovely wander - definitely good for the stamina - clearly I enjoyed it... (or was this photo taken before we'd hit the 'ascent' parts of the walk?)
