    8.86 miles, 2,876 feet, 2 hours 23 minutes: Loughrigg trails again. Overcast, with the cloud base down to about 1,000 feet in places. Constant light to moderate rain, a strong cold wind. Terrain wet, though not yet saturated. I was pleased with the Trailfly's grip. Very few about - 1 other fell runner. 1 cuckoo.

    Hurrah, I’m back running in the hills

    For today’s run, in proper Yorkshire Dales spring weather, a 5.6 mile loop up and down Penyghent. A quick video clip of Harry and Teasel running off PyG with me

    Looks like the shoes got a good clean, or are they new?
    Visibility good except in Hill Fog

    The second runout for my Trailfly Ultras. I’d managed to dull the vivid green glare on their first run with beach mud at Arnside Knott but then damn well shined them up again today

    8.25 miles, 4,071 feet, 2 hours 51 minutes: Wansfell Pike from 2 sides, including twice up and three times down the race route to the kissing gate. Overcast, though the sun did threaten to come out several times. Cloud base at about 2,000 feet. No visible snow. Constant drizzle/light rain, a strong wind on the top of the Pike as there often is. Terrain wet, even saturated in areas with poor drainage. A few about on the fell, mainly lower down.

    2.2km. Round the "block". My first tentative run after hopefully recovering from my back injury. Driving rain then glorious sunshine. No other people out.

    9.81 miles, 2,737 feet, 2 hours 32 minutes: Red Screes via Roundhill Farm both ways. Glorious sunshine with some nice fluffy clouds, no significant wind, no precipitation. I got down to my vest for the last section. Superb visibility. Terrain wet, saturated in places, patchy wet slippery snow above 2,000 feet. About a dozen on the fell, and a similar number lower down.

    I presume this isn't the "block" called Shutlingsloe? Anyway, I hope your recovery continues.

    No, just the road then a few fields. Given my back's been dickie for a few weeks, I'm building up slowly to proper hills.

    An early doors run up a beautifully snow crowned Penyghent this morning for me. 5.86 miles and 1,617 feet of ascent with a 20 minute breather at the top doing a bit of drone photography

    I cannot begin to explain how good it is to be back running in the hills again - this morning's run out was my fourth since last Friday, giving me 21 miles and something like 5,500 feet of ascent in 6 days. As little as a month ago I was seriously starting to wonder if my knee of doom was ever going to get better; at the best part of four months to come round, I reckon it may've been my worse running scare yet... and I've had a few
