As an aside I must confess to being in agony today. I woke up this morning with a bit of an ache in my hip and decided a brisk walk to town would probably sort it. In fact I was scarcely able to hobble back. A trapped nerve (sciatica) the cause. I am due to go on a walking holiday in ten days. Hmmm. Not after a sympathy vote here, just the off chance of some useful tips based on personal experience.
