    how the heck do you manage to do so much outdoor activity?????
    You must be both retired AND fit AND living in the right place, which is a top luxury combination.
    I envy you, and I bet I'm not alone.
    Well done!

Initially overcast, with the cloud base at about 1,550 feet; intermittent drizzle, terrain wet and slippery, quite a strong but not cold wind on top. It cleared up somewhat later, with spells of sunshine. Lots heading up to Fairfield - there is obviously an event on, as there were marshals on the top, and lots of cars parked in the event field in Grasmere. Not many people elsewhere, though I did see 4 other fell runners.
    Possibly the Helvellyn Triathlon...?

    15.18 miles, 4,525 feet, 5 hours 12 minutes: Ambleside to Hartsop Hall and back, taking the same route out and and back via Low Sweden Bridge - Rock Step - Low Pike - High Pike - Dove Crag - "Large pile of stones". I went up on the east side of the wall, and down on the west side. Sunshine and clouds, a lovely cool breeze at times, no rain, terrain dry and firm. Not many about, despite the excellent forecast.

    This was my 365th running day in a row.

    Thanks Gambatte - yes, I am retired, and I am very lucky living in Ambleside. It is a "honey pot", but for good reasons.

    11.32 miles, 4,424 feet, 4 hours 34 minutes: ODG - Buscoe Sike - Three Tarns - Crinkle Crags - Red Tarn - Pike O'Blisco - Blea Tarn - Lingmoor Fell - The Squeeze - Side Pike - ODG. Sunshine and clouds, a cold wind up high, lower down it was a refreshing breeze. Mist/cloud coming and going on the very highest tops. No rain, terrain mainly dry, but damp and slippery in the mist. Quite a few heading up to the Crinkles from Red Tarn, and on Lingmoor Fell.

    10.06, 2,680 feet, 2 hours 46 minutes: Loughrigg trails. Very overcast, particularly at first, when it looked like it could rain any minute, though it never did. No wind. Terrain mainly dry and firm. Not many on the fell, though Lily Tarn was quite popular, with about a dozen people there.
