    Bloody hell, 6hrs in today's heat without water!?!?

    I think I had 4-5 litres at Welsh 1000 today (in a similar time period to you), and was/am still dehydrated now...

    10.75 miles, 3,900 feet, 3 hours 41 minutes: Traveller's rest - Bracken Hause - Calf Crag - Steel Fell - Steel End - Dunmail Raise - Seat Sandal - Winterseeds. Sunshine and very welcome clouds, and a lovely cool breeze up high - it was so much warmer in the valleys. Terrain dry, firm to hard. Saw 7 on the fells; the carparks are overflowing and town is heaving.

    16.56 miles, 4,193 feet, 4 hours 48 minutes: Waterhead - High Skelghyll - Troutbeck - Garburn Pass - Ill Bell - Thornthwaite Beacon - Caudale Moor - Kirkstone Inn - The Struggle - Middle Grove Cottages. Very warm, not many clouds, not much of a breeze - the shade from trees was so welcome. Not many on the fells, though I saw 8 other runners. That cold drink and cold shower once I got home were so nice.

    That descent from Thornthwaite Beacon down into Threshthwaite Mouth is one of my favourites at the moment!

    Another contender being the north-west ridge off Caudale Moor down to Brothers Water.

    I find the descent from the Beacon a bit too rocky/gravelly/slippery to enjoy - give me grass any day. That Caudale Moor ridge is good. Unfortunately some normally really enjoyable local paths are blocked by bracken at the moment.

    I think that's why I like it, because it's challenging and I know I need to improve on more technical ground.

    In wet conditions it's absolutely horrible.

    8.08 miles, 2,242 feet, 2 hours 23 minutes: Patterdale(Cricket Club) - Place Fell - High Knott - path above the lake shore - Patterdale. Very warm, not much of a breeze, the intermittent shade on the path above the lake shore was most welcome. Terrain dry, firm. Lots on the lake path.

    9.72 miles, 2,094 feet, 2 hours 40 minutes: Rothay Bridge - Under Loughrigg - Badger Bar - Rydal Water - Deerbolts Wood - Loughrigg top - down to the road to Loughrigg Tarn - Loughrigg top - Fishgarths Wood - Rothay Bridge. This route was chosen as it has a lot of shade. Still very warm, very little breeze, terrain dry and firm. Not many on the fells, though there were 10-15 at the water's edge at both Rydal Water and Grasmere.

    10.17 miles, 2,516 feet, 3 hours 15 minutes: Traveller's Rest - Bracken Hause - Calf Crag - Steel Fell - back the same way. Very warm, not much of a breeze, terrain dry and firm. Saw six others on the fell, one a fell runner. I think most people are seeking swimming spots, not hills.

    8.95 miles, 3,798 feet, 3 hours 57 minutes: ODG - The Band - Climber's Traverse - Bowfell - Crinkle Crags - Pike O'Blisco - Great Lakes descent - ODG. There was quite a significant inversion when I set off - I did not get above it until 1,000 feet up. It was a bit cooler than yesterday, but then I had set off an hour earlier. Very warm once in the sun, with a refreshing breeze. Terrain dry, firm. Only saw 9 others on the fell. Took 50 minutes to get back to Ambleside - sheer volume of traffic heading north through the town.
