    13.23 miles, 3,716 feet, 4 hours 5 minutes: Rothay Bridge - Miller Bridge - Rydal - Fairfield Horseshoe clockwise - Miller Bridge - Rothay Bridge. Ascending, I went to the left of Heron Pike's two tops and to the left of Great Rigg; then over Hart Crag to stay out of the wind to an extent, to the right of Dove Crag, and descended with the wall on my left. Overcast, with the cloud base initially at about 2,000 feet, later 600 feet or so. Intermittent drizzle/light rain, a strong cold wind from the south west, terrain anything from damp to saturated; very slippery in many places. About twenty walkers on the fell, and two other runners.

    5.28 miles, 550 feet, 65 minutes: laps around the Roman Ruins. Sunshine and clouds, intermittent drizzle, and a very strong blustery wind from the north west. Terrain mainly damp grass, with occasional muddy patches. Lots of dog walkers about, and one fellow runner.

    Given the forecast of 50 mph gusts even in Ambleside, I thought I had better stay low. I see they had a gust of 134 mph in the Cairngorms.

    Very sensible. It was pretty blowy this morning for my run too. We avoided the ridges once the wind had picked up.
