So, what better time to go out and run 35 mile - when I'm only just back to "normal" !! The offroad reccie went well apart from me not realising there weren't any streams on route (despite it being littered with water / tarns), so I had to make do with half a water bottle until just before the quarries so about 4 hours.
No real NAV issues apart from the route up Cnicht which is best done (after consulting Helen) from a small dam wall, heading up the stone wall the other side.
The run back to the car was more of a deal than I had expected. I had 3 legs of 5 mile to get back - first leg was the minor road to the A road before Nant Gwynant. Second was up to Pen y Gwyryd. Third was back to Capel. I really really struggled here. Now I think it's the fact that I can't do flat stuff. Tagging that on the end of 7 hours on the fell was I think the problem. In the end it turned into a walk / shuffle due to tummy issues too (Note to self : limit fig roll intake next time!).
9h40m 35 miles.
