Well he walked through until just after 2.00 and off again at 6.00, has completed about 80 miles so far.  Fingers crossed for another 40 miles today.

Looks like he's off again after a few hours rest.  Amazing - go Slogger!
I think he is just doing another 100 miles before retiring.A kind of cool down. ;)

That made me laugh.


I've had to work today to get a report out by Monday - and Saturday's my walking day so I'm mighty cheesed off.  My wife, who I work with, has just informed me that if I spent less time watching Slogger's progress, I might have finished work and be out there myself.  She has a point.

Looks as though he may have stopped for the night just south of Healaugh, alternatively his tracker has stopped working for the last 2 hours.

I'm guessing he's made it as far as Reeth but the last tracking signal was just before it. Hopefully enjoying a well deserved rest  O0

  He is still on schedule for a sub-five day provided he reaches Claybank Top by tomorrow evening.He has got until 4am on Tuesday so plenty of time provided he can keep going at a steady pace. O0

A good rest last night and off again early this morning, now about 3 miles from Richmond.  Seems to be judging his "walk" well with reasonable rest periods to help recover.

Looks like he's stopped for the day, possibly at the Bluebell Inn. I read that he was trying to beat the fastest time but I don't recall him saying what that time was, or maybe I missed it?

One day left, still a long way to go.

I think I remember him saying during one of the Spine races that he needed to get more sleep early on, so hopefully thatís what heís done this time and can push on now seeing the end in sight. Go Slogger....

At the outset he said that it was an "attempt to set the FKT (Fastest known time) for a 70+ year old carrying all unsupported kit and overnight shelter" i.e. I don't think that there was a current FKT - do you know anyone else over 70 that would even try to do it in under 5 days?

Well at 66, 67 next year, I'm aiming for 12 days in June 2019. No way would I be trying for five  ;)

 Fastest known time for a + 70 year old walking up to 40 miles per day and carrying backpacking kit and self supported? I doubt if there is a time as most older runners/walkers tend to stick to non-stop ultras such as the LDWA 100.Unsupported backpackers setting very fast times are quite rare.

You can set a record for a 67 year old named Sussamb! ;D
