The End of the Cotswold Way

My friend Sheila and I finished walking the Cotswold Way 2 days early on Tuesday this week. We made it 100 miles (+ nearly an extra 5 miles to allow for contours up and down), and a total contour climb of 13,200 ft

And...you are looking a picture of health, too, Lisl.
Lisl: We felt pretty good by the end, Ray, and able to put all the aches and pains behind us
Yay! Well done to you both, I hope, no, I'm sure you had a great time. smile
Lisl: We did indeed have a great time, thank you, Frank - but conditions were not always good, and it seemed particularly slippery on the steep bits!
Congratulations to both you and Sheila... that was quite a feat Lisl...
it's nice to see you back... i have some questions to ask you about the chapel at Farleigh Castle...
but i will give you a few days to catch your breath....petersmile
Lisl: Thank you, Peter - I am up together again now, so pleaese ask away

That means you should have burnt off about an additional 9000 calories which equates to about three pounds in weight which means that you should be now be wearing walking trousers a size smaller but I guess you probably had a celebratory meal and bottle of wine that meant you didn't lose any weight at all ... Ha! .

Congratulations
Lisl: Funny you should say that, Richard - I put on an extra pound, but like to think that was muscle!

Well done Lisl, you are fitter than I shall ever be but I do know someone less fit than myself. I suggest you take him with you next time..
Lisl: Michael was very good with back-up transport, and I know how he missed not doing the walking

Oh, Lisl, you are back and I admire your fitness - you look fresh and healthy like on the first day of your walk or probably fresher and healthier - and I'm sure you have seen wonderful hillscapes and enjoyed great views ... I hope we'll see a bit of it on SC! Chris' comment is charming!
Lisl: I do feel very fit, Philine, so it must have done me some good. I will be putting a few pictures on later
You put me to shame Lisl.
Lisl: Don't feel like that, Bill - remember the nice walk in the Clent Hills
Pat yourselves on the back one hundred times, dear Lisl, one for every mile. I couldn't be more proud of you, Big Sis!
Lisl: Thank you so much, Ginnie - it was so good to have you and Astrid following our footsteps virtually and cheering us on

Oh well done! I wondered how the trip was going! I hope you found some lovely little cafes enroute for important refreshments. I hope the "Pay here" sign does not apply to those people walking the Way wink
Lisl: Ah, thank you, Alan. We did find the odd tea-room here and there, perhaps more than the odd one! With prices as they are up there, I wouldn't be surprised if they started to charge walkers!

Super job Lisl, how long did it take you and where did you stay?
Lisl: Thank you, Chad. We took 8 days, and came home each night (courtesy of Michael's driving)
Since I will be going to the area in the next coming years -Stonehouse-, I shall contact you for experienced guidelines smile
Lisl: I would be very pleased to help, Juan Carlos. I expect you know that we walked through Stonehouse?
Well done you! What an achievement. Lovely to have you back here.

Catch your breath before we strike out on some walks to see ancient sites the week after next.
