    Weather is shocking here today. I pulled out 4800ft in 10 miles, so a similar ratio on paper, but obviously that was all treadmill work, and none of the descent to go with it!
    .... and of course we need to run downhill to protect us from the eccentric contraction related DOMS from .... running down hill. Going up I am just power walking.

    12.37 miles, 3,281 feet, 3 hours 17 minutes: Fairfield c/w. In clag the whole way - visibility down to 50 paces above about 600 feet. No rain, no wind, slippery from condensation on all surfaces. Quite a few on the fell. One asked me if there was a path off Fairfield - he was about 5 feet from it. I was pleased to find all the trods again.

    The cloud base was also about 600 feet on Beacon Hill when I was up there today. But the toughest part of the run was over the freshly ploughed fields on the way back.

    Even walking on freshly ploughed fields is a nightmare.

    Some managed to just get above the clouds on Helvellyn and Great End - superb photos.

    12.27 miles, 3,400 feet, 3 hours 14 minutes: Fairfield c/w. Mainly sunny, some clouds, the odd wintry shower and a very cold wind on top. Some ice on the rocks. Only saw four others on the fell. Town is quiet.

    7 miles, 1,791 feet, 2 hours 12 minutes: Wansfell Pike. Three to four inches of snow on the top, snow line about 1,000 feet. No wind, so not cold. Very slippery - micro spikes were great on snow covered rock, but useless on snow covered grass. Four others on the fell. Roads/car parks very quiet.

    7.46 miles, 2,080 feet, 2 hours 1 minute: Loughrigg trails. Blustery wind at times, almost constant drizzle, overcast. Snow/slush above about 750 feet, making it extremely slippery. Only saw five others.

    7.35 miles, 3,570 feet, 2 hours 36 minutes: Wansfell Pike, including down/up/down/up/down the race descent. Sunny, no wind, no ice/snow to speak of at this level, but lots of visible snow on the higher fells. Terrain surprisingly dry. Lots on the tourist paths on the fell.

    Edit: My partner tells me that town is heaving.
