    9.36 miles, 1,970 feet, 2 hours 17 minutes: around and on Loughrigg. Overcast, fell tops in cloud/mist, constant light rain, roads under 6 inches or so of water in places, puddles and streams everywhere. Strong wind on top, but not cold. Not too slippery. Saw about 10 people, only 1 of whom was on the fell.

    12.55 miles, 3,443 feet, 3 hours 47 minutes: Fairfield c/w. Initially overcast, with the cloud base at 2,500 feet, and visibility down to 40 yards at times - later, glorious sunshine. A very cold wind but only at the very top. The overnight wind has done a brilliant job of almost drying the terrain - only the rocks were particularly slippery. Saw a couple of dozen people, half of them on the fell.

    I forgot to say that there is still some ice on the paths on the very top of Fairfield, as well as the odd patch of snow where the sun does not reach it, and up against walls where there were large deep drifts. All easily avoided.

    10.27 miles, 2,730 feet, 2 hours 45 minutes: Red Screes - up via Middle Grove Farm, the Struggle, and the Kirkstone Inn; down via Roundhill Farm. Blue sky and sunshine; a cool breeze on top. Terrain sodden and slippery at times, but predictably so. Still some ice on the Red Screes' tarns, but not elsewhere. Quite a few in town, only 2 others on the fell.

Overcast, cloud base about 1,000 feet, intermittent light rain, a bit of a breeze at times, not cold. Very few about - 1 dog walker, 1 cyclist, no other runners. Not many vehicles.

    9.88 miles, 3,044 feet, 2 hours 55 minutes: Loughrigg trails. Overcast, continuous light rain, windy but not cold at the top of Loughrigg. Terrain is saturated - many paths are a stream or a series of puddles, depending on the gradient. Very slippery, but predictably so. Only saw 3 others on the fell - 2 runners and a dog walker. The short section of Under Loughrigg I ran on was under a foot of water in one spot.

    6.62 miles, 3,500 feet, 2 hours 30 minutes: Wansfell Pike, with twice down/up the race route to the kissing gate. Sunshine and clouds, 2-3 very brief spells of light drizzle, a cold wind on the top but it was enough to pull down the sleeves and do the zip up - windproof not needed. The terrain is still wet/slippery, but there were far fewer puddles and streams than yesterday. Saw about a dozen others on the fell, and 4-5 on the road.

    9.18 miles, 2,420 feet, 2 hours 27 minutes: Loughrigg trails. Mainly overcast, the odd spell of sunshine, no wind to speak of. Terrain drying out where facing the sun and wind, very wet and slippery elsewhere. About 10 on the fell.

    12.51 miles, 3,329 feet, 3 hours 38 minutes: Fairfield c/w. In cloud from 600 ft on the way up until 1,500 ft on the way down. It was obviously an inversion - occasionally there was blue sky above me, but I never escaped above the cloud. Cold wind on the very top - almost still elsewhere. The terrain continues to dry out, though the rocks are slippery. Saw 8 others on the fell, 5 of them fell runners.

    12.64 miles, 3,350 feet, 3 hours 27 minutes: Fairfield c/w. There was an early inversion, but the mist soon melted away leaving glorious sunshine. No wind. Frosty/crunchy terrain in places, rocks slippery. Saw 7 on the fell on the way up, all but 1 fell runners; there were a couple of dozen walkers heading up as I descended.

    9.97 miles, 3,433 feet, 3 hours 10 minutes: Wansfell ridge. What a glorious day - sunshine, no wind, terrain drying nicely. 20 or so on the fell; the roads are pretty quiet, though there are a few cyclists about.
