The weather forecast predicted a dry morning before heavy, possibly thundery showers in the early afternoon. At breakfast time the sun was shining confirming our plan to hike the eastern section of the Sheffield Round Walk. The woodland was exceptionally green and we had a lovely trip except for witnessing a couple of stout dogs trying to kill each other in a park (we saw them later and they seemed fine so it wasn't as severe as it appeared). That was an undulating 11 mile walk, mostly done without pole, although I did use them on the long Norton Lees descent.
After a picnic lunch on the patio at home I cut the grass and finished just as it started to rain.
After all of this I was aware of my knees and made a point of doing lots of rollering of tight muscles and the usual set of stretches.
