Pragmatism and Purism lose out to Painkillers and Purlins

Posted by @ 11:14 am on Thursday 28th May, 2009.

The Coniston Fells rematch has had to be postponed due to my lack of confidence that my back will stay the course. It's a great disappointment on several levels, not least because I was hoping to take Ella with me for her first wildie. MWIS predicts that the weather's going to be really good over the weekend, so it would have been a great opportunity to introduce her to a couple of days and nights without most of the techno-trappings of life as she knows it.

Never mind, there'll be plenty of other chances.

It looks like I'll be taking it easy and finishing the observatory roof and the bathroom refurb instead.

There's no peace for the wicked, eh?

    You have my sympathies on this one Stef 🙁 .

    It's the uncertainty that's the real sod. For example I know I can get up a hill as long as it's a straight, smooth path, ascent. But I also know if I'm working the back with the pack on for too long it's likely to catch up with me on the way down. On the other hand I virtually skipped up the last part of Stob Ban in October when normally I would be struggling. It's a real sod not knowing which "Mr. Back" is out for a walk with you.

    Hope things clear up for you soon.
