    Also love the silence, self reliance and no one else to worry about for a couple of hours.

    I though us northerns called the hills and mountains "fells"

    Does this mean there are some fell downs somewhere in England.

    Perhaps people like myself, now living in the midlands, could be called fell down runners.

    Intervals and the like are more fun with others. Misery loves a companion and all that!

    Thou love going out for a long run in hills on my own, but hate long road runs on my own (thou thats the case 99% of the time....I have no friends)
