mountain run 5:23:00  32.0 km (10:06 / km) +2474m 7:17 / km
Back to Snowdon for some reps but this time chose not to hit Llanberis path first and park at the bottom of The Watkin - there is a toilet there too and the coffee on the way made it a safe choice.
Bit of rain in the air but warm enough for a T Shirt once I got moving up the path and not many people about.
I like the Watkin as it has a bit of everything and isn't as monotonous as Llanberis path , it did take longer to hit the top though especially after a slight line missed in the thick cloud / fog.
Bit of a scramble down to the path but no drama and then went up and over to Garnedd Ugain for some more easy vert.
Plan was to just do a few up/downs of Llanberis path but it was much busier than just two weeks ago - I couldn't face the people or the awkward conversations passing them all the time so I ran down and cut across to Maesggym / telegraph Path which had nobody on it all the way up.
I had to stop half way up there to try and get my hip more mobile , a kind of pigeon stretch on the bank seemed to do it - the dull ache seems to come on with the long hiking climbs and doesn't go away but this actually eased it.
At the top I actually rang Duncans place for an app but there is a very long wait......June!
I booked it but asked to get Duncan to message me if a cancellation pops up.
On that note I have booked in at Chris Bramahs place too earlier ...not with Chris but the lady that works with him - its the earliest I could get so best I can do right now.
Up some other hill I can never remember but grassy / boggy underfoot now then up the Ranger path to summit again.
Time meant I could do Garnedd Ugain but didn't want to go further before taking it easy down the Watkin again.
The sun came out for the run down which was nice and the hip doesn't seem to be bothered by that much.
Good session, felt it in the quads more than the other week and worked the poles more too so could feel that in the arms.
Energy wise good although I skipped the last hour to save the gels for another day and it showed as got to the car!
