    Todays permitted exercise!

    Did a few miles on a local trail.
    Amazed at how few were there!

    Less than yesterday.
    Saw two individuals out with dogs. Thats it. Not a runner to be seen.
    Yet it is one of the few places off road where feet are kept dry here! Glorious day.

    Over and around Loughrigg - 8.5 miles or so - lots of dog walkers on the roads, once on the fell only 4 people in total - 2 runners and 2 sitting apart at the top. Easy to keep well over 2 metres from them all, and most gates can be managed using feet, or climbing over well away from the gate. When the weather is so nice it feels creepy to have so few about. Only 3 cars parked near Miller Bridge - usually 20 or so with no free spaces.

    sounds like the message might finally be getting through....
    ....it's all downhill from here.

    A call of "passing on the right" was needed when a walker ahead of me, who had been on the left side of the path (about 3 metres wide between hedges), veered into the centre when I was about 10 metres away. Anyway, he reacted in the desired way. Plenty of other walkers around, but no problem keeping at least two metres away when I passed them. And the mud is drying up!
    In his lifetime he suffered from unreality, as do so many Englishmen.

    I'm torn, because my longer walks are part of my training. So should I put a long hill walk on here or on "today's training"?

    It's messing with my head

    7 mile road and trail run. Not a soul around. Felt like the Omega Man!

    I live a handfull of miles from the edge of the peak district national park; no end of bridleways/footpaths between me and there. Out for 22Km yesterday (ran over to Cowen Edge) and just saw a few people on the canal right at the start and the end.

    22 miles on deserted back lanes. Skies are strangely clear.

    7.6 miles, 2:25, 900ft walk around the hills between home and Tockholes with Mrs WP.

    Had a chat at a safe distance with a Farmer and his wife while passing through his yard.

    Very quiet, cracking the flags
