But set off, and consiquently arrived at Wasdale too late. Also not 100% as to route up Yewbarrow(....am now! Thanks Mr Wightman!). I'm seriously now thinking I've not done enough, and am thinking of leaving it until next year. Don't really seem able to cover the ground quite quick enough, not consistently at any rate. I think I need to serve my dues a wee bit more! Going to see how I am at end of April, I'd really like to get out with people of here more, but a combination of lack of confidence in my speed etc, my shifts at work clashing and a general feeling that people are a fair bit ahead ofme puts mockers on it!
    Im going to power walk/jog the first 3 legs on sat 7th if you wanna join me on some or all of it, will be doing the last 2 legs on the sunday. Im interested to see how far I could get round doing it like this..... It'll be good training for ye at the least

    Yup we had great weather although the hailstones on Pillar were huge. We also had a bit of a snow flurry on Gable but not to bad.

    (We were spot on 23 hr schedule which was great for friend who's going in June :thumbup: )

    Yes we certainly experienced all weathers!
    Thanks for the vote of confidence Ken, it's all rather daunting now as 15th June doesn't seem that far away...

    @Rev - I think I might be just coming off an overtime night shift on 7th, but I'll get back to you. I'm hoping at present to do something on 8th, sunday I think. Cheers!

    Yea I can do.
    Yea I did the L50 last year and kind if decided then that I wanted another challenge so after discussions with my good friend Ken I set about adapting my training and going to the Lakes as often as possible.
    As for my training like yourself I probably have not been to the Lakes as often as I should have, however I have made all my sessions hard and as hilly as possible "where I live" and done a lot of work to strengthen my legs to prepare them as much as possible.
