A walk in the hills

We took the opportunity of escaping to the hills for a couple of days to enjoy the late sunshine. The Malverns in Worcestershire were beautiful. The climb to the top was approximately 1000 feet - and what a steep climb it was. Yesterday we had a sandwich for lunch and took lots of water with us. We ended up walking around 8 miles in total - and that includes a quick wander round the town after a few beers.
We certainly deserved our pint after the walk, and descended with this in mind. Later we enjoyed a good old pub curry and some wine. Sleep was easy! Today we awoke to find our legs still working and managed a second climb right to the top. We had obviously refuelled much better, and replaced our salt adequately (suspect the curry did that, and the full breakfast). Our friend in the Chinook was showing off, and trying to get as close to the hills as he could.
We were impressed with our ability to ascend the Malverns so much quicker second time round. We completed 5.5 miles today, with half of these pretty hard going. As we have had a relatively heavy couple of days, we are going to enjoy some salads and bbq meat over the weekend.
