Topic - Walking pole just in case?

Ridge - on 30 Jun 2013
Well yesterday started out ok, most of the ascent done, just passing the top of Hallsfell and looking forward to running off the back of Blencathra and over Mungrisdale Common, when my foot went down the hole.

Cue much yelping, swearing, hopping and a look from the hound that said "If you can't walk you're on your own mate...wonder if there's another runner I can tag along with?". There then followed a slow walk/jog/limp back to the car.

I'm now hobbling round with a swollen bruised foot that I think is just soft tissue damage, but wondering if, in addition to brufen and some out of date co-codamol and naproxen, a walking pole might be a useful extra for times like that. (I am aware looking where I'm going and less brittle ankles might be an even better option).

Anyone else carry one routinely?
