Last week: 51 miles; 6950 feet; 10:40:12
With Colin & Albert on Saturday for brilliant route from Colin over Scafell Pike to Upper Eskdale and back to the Three Shires Stone. Cold Pike, Crinkles, Bowfell, Esk Pike, Great End, Scafell Pike and straight down in Upper Eskdale before returning over Little Stand to the TSS. A great collection of fell race routes and apart from Scafell Pike a quiet route even on a bank holiday weekend – one to do again. The rest of the week was pretty easy, no more big climbs and no more long sessions – almost a taper in preparation for The Fellsman tomorrow.
I now have 5 weeks left and plan three hard weeks culminating in another “Joss” (on a slower schedule), a week in Scotland and then Duddon before a two week taper as the final preparation for the 13th June which is the same date that Bob Graham did his round.
