    That sounds like a serious workout Mike! Well done for keeping the thread churning while I was off for a few days backpacking and wild camping. Arrived home this afternoon with soaked kit, a back niggle, but ultimately refreshed and re-spirited for the Christmas season onslaught of visits to and from!!

    Easing return into the routine with a familiar EMOM - sets of 10 press-ups, floor to lock to floor. Time in secs remaining for each min.

    43 - 43 - 43 - 43 - 43 - 42 - 43 - 40 - 38 - 36

    Welcome back Mossdog - wild camping at this time of year - very brave! Have a go at using that backpack for some of your press-up sessions - it makes it interesting.

    Another trip out of Teesdale today, and headed for Tebay to run the fell race route.

    8.3 miles, 2,989 feet, 2hrs 16 mins.

    It has been a while since I came this way, and all the way around today I had the dread of that final climb from the beck up to Blease fell on my mind. As it was, while causing the usual amount of huff and pain (of the good sort!), I seemed to reach the summit quicker than I remembered. Nothing to do with my speed, obviously (!), but perhaps when we magnify issues in our mind, the reality then appears so much..erm...'softer'. The run from Blease fell back to Tebay, is of course blissful, once my legs had got over the physical shock for the previous climb and remembered how to shake themselves into a running gait again.

    It's a shame that for the most part of the route the roar of traffic on the M6 spoils what would otherwise be a pleasant outing. At least midway, around Black Force (the pretty part of the route) the wind was sufficiently strong as to temporary obscure traffic noise.

    A friend of mine has just moved to Tebay, and we discovered that amongst its many charm it also has 5G - who'd have thought! Tebay, so well connected on all front
