    This guy was talking to me whilst we ate our pie and mushy pies, trying to talk me into the doing the Anglezarke Amble in feb....but thats 24 miles and theres no way i'll be able to manage that.

    And he also mentioned the 'xx circuit' which he called the "two crosses". Thats either 18 or 25. I think with a bit of trainin, 18 shouldnt be too bad.
    Al. Why not go BIG! How about the Fellsman next year? (Not necessarily for a quick time - just to get 'round!)

    Re: 4 weeks until a 13 miler.

    Is there anything similar to the fellsman but in the lakes instead.

    Because yorkshire isnt somewhere i can get to easily, let alone even been there.

    Im more comfortable with the lakes as i know it quite well.

    Yorkshire's hills are a damned sight milder than the Lake District! PPP and surrounding areas make for great running! The Fellsman's not too bad... I got 'round (with an injury) having only just got back into running for less than a year after a LONG break and only getting 1 decent run in each week.

    It sounds worse than it is... you've just got to keep going (even if its on your knees!).
