From September last year. Carlisle to Cleveleys. I left my car at my friends house, train to Carlisle and walked back. 110 miles, six days.

No wonder you were tired  :) I couldn't do half that distance in six days.

That's really impressive - I bet you enjoyed that well-deserved cuppa on the table once you'd recovered enough to drink it!  :) O0

Thank you.
Carlisle to Mosedale 19 miles.
Mosedale to Patterdale 18 miles.
Patterdale to Bowness 15 miles.
Bowness to Milnthorpe 16 miles.
Milnthorpe to Morecambe 16 miles.
Morecambe to Cleveleys 26 miles.


I like to work on an average of 19 - 20 miles a day, I could easily keep this up when I first started. Now ten years down the line, I find that my body is still capable of doing that but I have hit a plateau with boredom. I probably need to walk in different parts of the country for a change of scenery.

Hi Ilona, do you still walk your long distances.? I have been out of action for a four months and only just getting back into things. I have done two eight milers, but found after 6/7 miles, I was tiring and am not sure if its because I`m out of condition or its other factors such as boredom as you mentioned...? Possibly it`s a combination of things with me (I`m 65 next birthday) & I may keep it to 5 miles for a while until I feel stronger..how is your walking nowadays...did you get to see any different scenery.....best..Geoff
I enjoy being back home after a great walk in a desolate place, at times nervous, thinking maybe I`m pushing it here, but then so glad I did ! :)
