    If you look on the splits tab on the live tracking page linked to you'll see the planned stopped times. So Hobbiton[120] being Langdale. She's another 2hrs planned at Troutbeck and at Glenridding. There's a 60min stop at Dodd Wood but all the other stops are short. Very much a balancing act between getting things sorted and starting to stiffen up.

    I was just looking at that myself Bob.

    I'll no doubt be proved mightily wrong, but I just can't see how it can be sustained until sunday morning without a single break of more than a couple of hours!

    Another mentally tough day today with a fine selection of nightmarish out-and-backs!

    Pretty sure in Paul Tierney's film he said he thought time could be taken out of his record with shorter stops. Though obviously significantly easier said than done!

    Anyone know what the schedule is? Think I read on Twitter than she's on a sub-6 day target, but how true that is I don't know.

    Yes you can view the splits on the tracker. Looks like the schedule is for half-hour under 6 days.

    That ascent she's about to take up Tarn Crag via the ridge from Easedale, it's a bit of a slog under normal circumstances... You'd probably run it in a race, but you wouldn't enjoy it!

    As it says in Exodus 20:9. Six days you shall labour and do all your work.

    Seems to have slowed slightly since Helm Crag. Steady 15ish minutes up on schedule all morning until then, 12 minutes down at Silver How and 14 at Loughrigg. Will be interesting to see how she gets on over the next lot of hills over to Kirkstone... there's not a lot of fat on those splits!

    She was over two hours up at one point yesterday evening/night. Although i expect that will fluctuate wildly again over next couple of days.

    But even then, the schedule has a 6.5 hour cushion over the record...
