    4.76 miles, 2,476 feet, 1 hour 57 minutes: Wansfell Pike, including twice up and once down the race route from/to the kissing gate. A walk - just me. Sunny with some patchy high clouds; a cold wind from the north west. Terrain damp and slippery in places. No frost/ice. I saw about 20 others on the fell, and 1 fellow runner.

    I think I did a PB on the ascents - 21 minutes each time. It usually takes me a couple of minutes longer. The descent - 13 minutes.

    Good to see the confidence is back that you are able to go out on the hill again Mike.
    Visibility good except in Hill Fog

    Thanks. It is so good to be feeling OK, and to want to do more.

    I've only ever done an ankle when I was switched off and coasting.

    Well done, Mr B. I wish I had your mental fortitude! I'm sure there are many of us (myself included) who have numerous scars obtained from the last km of benign trail back to the car/van after an arduous run.

    5.5 miles, 2,037 feet, 2 hours 28 minutes: Wansfell Pike, including along the ridge to the true top and back, and once down the race route to the kissing gate. A walk with my partner. Lovely sunshine, a few high clouds, a cold wind from the north west. Terrain widely frozen and icy. Microspikes carried but not used. Quite a few walkers about, and one runner.

    10.3 miles, 2,607 feet, 3 hours 8 minutes: around the Roman Ruins, then Loughrigg trails - just me; mainly walking but some gentle slow running. Sunshine, and some clouds catching the highest tops. A cool breeze from the north west. Terrain mainly dry, but firm/icy in places. Quite a few walkers on the main routes.
