Day 13 - Saturday 2nd October 2010

Last night in a 17th century house in Ripon, kind hosts and grouse for supper! In bed, after the 12th session of 18 miles in successive days, I felt the muscles in my legs develop a life of their own and begin to gently flex: a leitmotive to cramp I suppose. I propose to eat more bananas and drink tonic water. Another 9 miles out of Ripon and another day's 18 miles done and dusted. I feel like a prisoner ticking them off!

A great number of well wishers along the way, all so encouraging. A good number asking about the state of my feet. In fact thanks to my dear foot lady in Oxford, Elizabeth Humble Thomas, they have never been a problem; the problem has been an occasional spell of tiredness that, without warning, can hang over me like a pall. Its then I have to think of the people who are facing real problems in Zimbabwe, and this thought keeps me going.
