    10.83 miles, 3,913 feet, 3 hours 44 minutes: Traveller's Rest - to Bracken Hause via those lovely zig zags - Gibson Knott - Calf Crag - Steel Fell - Steel End - Dunmail Raise - Seat Sandal - down the south ridge to Winterseeds. The cloud base was initially at about 600 feet; a lot of it cleared, but there wasn't much sun nor blue sky. A cool breeze on the tops. Terrain damp and slippery in places. I saw a pair of runners on Calf Crag but did not come across any other people whilst I was out.

    9.23 miles, 4,214 feet, 2 hours 59 minutes: Wansfell Pike from 3 sides. Virtually constant drizzle/light rain, though not as bad as I had feared from the forecast. A strong wind at times, even down in the valley. Terrain damp and slippery. I wore full waterproof cover and gloves. I only saw about a dozen others on the fell.

    Today was the first day since 21/4/21 that I did not wear my TrailFly Ultra G300 Max shoes - as it was so wet I wore a new pair of X-Talon 255s - superb grip on the race descent (twice) from Wansfell Pike. The reduced cushioning was obvious at first, as was the reduced drop, but once off tarmac it was not really an issue. Unless I am doing a route where grip is particularly important the TrailFlys will be my number 1 choice.

    13.67 miles, 3,705 feet, 3 hours 54 minutes: Rothay Bridge - Under Loughrigg - Fox Ghyll - Loughrigg top - Elterwater - Swinescar Pike - Lang How - Silver How - Loughrigg top - Fishgarths Wood - Clappersgate - Rothay Bridge. Sunshine and clouds, no rain, a cool breeze on the tops - perfect vest or T shirt weather. Terrain dry and soft. Not that many about, surprisingly. Back to my trailFlys for this run. Unfortunately the bracken is now blocking many of the good paths.

    10.03 miles, 2,691 feet, 2 hours 50 minutes: Loughrigg trails. Sunshine and clouds, very warm, a cool breeze at times, but not often enough. Terrain dry and firm. Quite a few on the main paths, and unfortunately a lot of the rarely used paths are now blocked by bracken.

    I remember doing the exact same route in (i think) 2018 the day before the Mountain Trial at Grasmere. It was a nice day.

    True to form, the first part of the LDMT day was abysmal.

    10.78 miles, 2,737 feet, 2 hours 42 minutes: Red Screes via Roundhill Farm both ways. Sunshine and some very welcome clouds, and a very nice cool breeze on the top. Terrain dry and firm. Saw about 15 others on the fell. So nice to get home and have a cold drink and as cold a shower as it will go.
