16.9 miles today. (On 4 hours sleep as well)
Footpath quality on the first stretch was terrible and then after that I got to the sign saying that part of the towpath was closed as it was too dangerous, so I did a long diversionincluding lots of nettles and the A45. I was off the towpath for most of the afternoon as well as my guide suggested the paths would be bad and gave a very nice alternate route through farmland.
I’m exhausted now!

15/8 – Bus stop at Rothersthorpe to Long buckby station.
Walked with Mark.
I got drenched.
13/8 – Wolverton station to Rothershthorpe (for bus link to Northampton)
Weather fine, path quality excellent
14.7 miles is a fairly impressive stint really – and I didn’t notice that it was that long. Went off canal at two points – the first was a diversion due to towpath repairs, the second was at the Blisworth tunnel where there is no towpath as the canal goes under the hill for two miles.

9.7 miles and minimal ascent proves that it’s sunlight that tires me out and not the walking itself.
I’m so gonna overheat in rome!
