    Yesterday evening, whilst my son was swimming, I went for an exploratory walk up to Axe Edge to checkout its trods. My only other visits have been in the dark and/or clag and I was pleasantly surprised by the all round views.
    The two best ones were of the once seen never forgotten outlines of Chrome Hill and Shutlingsloe, both looking fantastic in the beautiful evening sunshine.

    Sightings of Lapwing, Curlew, Grouse and Skylark topped off a very well spent hour.
    Visibility good except in Hill Fog

    9.80 miles, 2,921 feet, 2 hours 40 minutes: Loughrigg trails. Overcast with the occasional spell of sunshine and a few brief wintry showers. Waterproof top not used, and I even got down to my vest. No significant wind at this height. Terrain very variable - from dry to damp to saturated. Not many about. 1 cuckoo - I heard 1 yesterday as well, near Roundhill Farm.

    You're not wrong there, I was staggered the first time I saw Chrome Hill. Do you have a photo to share with us?

    6.8 miles, 3,470 feet, 2 hours 23 minutes: Wansfell Pike from 2 sides, including twice up and three times down the race route to the kissing gate. Cloudy, sunshine at times, intermittent drizzle, no significant wind. Terrain anything from dry to saturated. Did not use my waterproof top - got down to my vest for the last mile or so. Not many about.

    9.07 miles, 2,546 feet, 2 hours 36 minutes: Loughrigg trails, including 2 routes - one a 4WD track, the other a walking path - that I had not been on before. Overcast, main cloud base at about 1,400 feet, but patches of mist lower down; constant light to moderate rain, no significant wind. All over waterproof kit worn throughout, with hood up. Terrain wet/saturated. Quite a few runners about lower down. Direction markers - white arrows on a blue background - on the fell - there is clearly an event on.

    Turns out it is "The Lap", a 47 mile trail route around Windermere - 80 to enter!

    10 miles, 3,867 feet, 3 hours 8 minutes: Wansfell Pike from 3 sides. Initially it was sunny with a few clouds, but it soon became overcast with a strong wind and light showers. Terrain mainly just damp. Quite a few on the main steps to the Pike.

    I had my second vaccination in Kendal this morning - went like clockwork. They are even warning people of the symptoms of Cerebral Venous Sinus Thrombosis - from my reading only one person has developed this after a second injection, all the others were after the first injection, and even then the risk is something like 1 in 95,000.

    Well done on keeping the mega mileage running going Mike. Presumably your jab was administered after the run? Regarding the warning, I'd wonder on the wisdom of introducing another potential 'risk' to people's minds, especially give the very low incidence. Still, I suppose we live in a world where everything has to be 'transparent', despite the difficulty many of us have gauging proportionate risk.

    Thanks Mossdog - the jab was before my run. I agree that warning people of the risk of CVST and the associated symptoms before their second injection is pretty pointless, given that the risk is less than 1 in several million. If they asked people 5 minutes later what specific warning they had been given I have no doubt most would be unable to recall any details. Ideally, before their first jab, people would have read about the risks either online or from a leaflet. I was offered a leaflet at both visits - I declined - but there would not have been time to read it.

    I have an ever so slightly sore left deltoid muscle this morning - my partner had the same symptom after her second jab. If it was bilateral I would just think I had had a hard work out. I have been having annual flu jabs for perhaps 20 years - this is my first vaccination side-effect since the swine flu jab in 2009 when I had similar discomfort.

    9.93 miles, 3,308 feet, 2 hours 52 minutes: Loughrigg trails - specifically: Rothay Bridge - Clappersgate - Fishgarths Wood - Todd Crag - down to the little wooden bridge above Miller Brow and back up again - Lily Tarn - Ivy Crag - Loughrigg top - down to the road at High Close - back the same way, but for Ivy Crag and Miller Brow. Overcast, with the occasional patch of blue sky and a few spots of rain. A strong wind from the south west. I could see heavy rain to the north and west. Terrain mainly dry. Very few about. 2 cuckoos heard.

    I'll be back in Cov this weekend having my jab.

    Obviously missing the anticipated Clough Head - Great Dodd race, but should be back fighting for the Fairfield Horseshoe the week after.
