    11.01 miles, 3,057 feet, 3 hours 6 minutes: Loughrigg trails. Sunshine and clouds, a cool breeze, no precipitation - I got down to my vest for the last hour. Terrain dry and soft - lovely to run on. I should have chosen somewhere less central - it was crawling with people. There is a section of path about 1/4 of a mile long that Ivy Crag overlooks - normally it is empty, occasionally there's 1 or even 2 groups on it - today there were 6.

    Another 78 miles walked in the last week.

    Back to the physio yesterday who has given me the go ahead to start cycling again as long as it is on smooth roads and no steep hills which will cause me to pull on the bars and overdo the strain on the shoulder.
    She also gave me the green light to start jogging

    Off to Mid Wales this afternoon for a few days so no cycling but the running shoes were the first thing packed so a bit of walking/jogging in the hills is on the cards.

    Onwards and Upwards
    Visibility good except in Hill Fog

    14.82 miles, 4,304 feet, 4 hours 43 minutes: Fairfield c/w, including down to Grisedale Tarn, and back up over Cofa Pike. Sunshine and clouds, no significant wind, no precipitation - down to my vest for the last hour or so. Terrain dry and soft. Not that many on the fell, quite a few in town. I overtook a group of runners on the other side of the wall on the descent - I think it shows how much more runnable it is on the right side rather than any descending skill on my part.

    Fantastic route.

    There's a bus service from my village through Glenridding/Patterdale/Kirkstone/Troutbeck, so looking forward to some linear training runs around this area.

    I got my free bus pass just a week or 2 before the first lockdown, and have yet to use it. My partner recently walked from Ambleside down to Claife Heights, took the ferry over to Bowness, then the bus back to Ambleside. Ferry - 1, bus - 6; she was the only person on the bus. Pre lockdown a group of us got the bus from Kirkstone to Pooley Bridge and ran back - a good outing.

    Using the bus pass from Kendal/Ambleside to Keswick or vice - versa then running back over Clough Head etc to Ambleside makes a good outing, I Particularly like boarding a bus after a good wet muddy run with well clarted up legs etc and presnting my bus pass which has often raised smile from some folk and been a coversation starter.

    There are some excellent outings to be had using the bus pass which in my opinion is very enviromentally sound.

    That sounds great....

    But am i reading that correctly... 6 for a single fare Bowness to Ambleside!?!?

    The Kirkstone - Pooley Bridge bus is the one which i'll be using (my village is next one after Pooley Bridge)

    Yes - 6 - that is the cheapest ticket. But you can go a lot further for not much more.

    Looks like you're moving to the wrong mountains for bus travel, Travs: it's only 2 to Pen y Pass from as far away as Llanrwst.
