I already have a blog on Fetcheveryone, but this one is going to be slightly different.  It's going to be mainly about training, what I'm doing, what I'm not doing, what I plan to do, you know the sort of thing.
You see last year I had this mad notion to enter the Lakeland 50 event, but I didn't tell anyone so I couldn't really write anything about my training or recce runs etc, so I have decided that if I manage to get an entry this year I will keep an account of my progress.  I say progress because although I did finish last year I want to be a bit quicker at my next attempt and now I know just exactly what's expected and what to expect at the event I know what I need to include in the training schedule etc.,

Tonight I went a walk over Halliday Hill at Glenmidge with OH, Kona, Frank and Tramp,  I used trekking poles for the first time.  I had seen a great many of the competitors at L100 and L50 using them, and intend to include their use in my training plan, just so that I have the option of using them in the event if I wish.  At present I am using the ones we already have, but I have my eye on a pair of Alpkit foldable ones.   My headtorch is Alpkit which I felt was actually better than my L50 buddies one which was Petzl.  Mine had a much better beam.

I'm not sure how having two blogs is going to work but I'm going to give it a shot anyway.

  1. Go on then? how`d it go ....... thanks for the recommendation of a head torch. I've struggled with a cheapy for a few years.

    Best Wishes in anticipation for the report :-)
