Off-road running 1:35:00  7.0 mi (13:34 / mi)
Spent the morning at the nets at Brockholes (google it). It costs a lot, and the kids love it, but you are on them from 2 hours and it is totally knackering. I was trying to work out how to describe it, and the nearest I can get is that it is like trying to move on the final descent of the carnethy 5 - for 2 hours. All over exhaustion. A survey of parents would doubtless say 30mins for 1/4 of the price would be perfect.
Then swimming late afternoon, and afterwards a run. From Langdale spa place where I left Ray in the pool with the kids, then chapel stile, up to Silver Howe, along to stickle tarn, and back by the new dungeon Ghyll to the cottage. I was pretty tired the whole way but it was lovely - very clear and you could see all of the tops. I was going to touch the tarn then turn around and run back down the ridge, but it was getting dark and I had a compass and torch but forgot the map, so safely first. Calf / foot still f'ed, but when there is such good running on the doorstep you have to make the most of it.
