Or maybe I should get on with my work and not keep checking it every 10 minutes!
Your work will still be there tomorrow!

I've got my whole office excited!  And for a five day completion he does have until 4 am tomorrow doesn't he?  (Though the way he's going he won't need it)

I agree but he has been walking since midnight!  However I have faith that he will do it.  It is good to see RHB and Dave on the same page.

In the 2013 Spine race he walked the first three days without sleeping.Provided he had a good rest before he started this section he should be fine.Just past Littlebeck so he should hopefully be in RHB around 8.30-9pm.

I think he must be running!  Looks like he will be there an hour or so earlier than your estimate, he must be making sure the pub is open for a good drink/rest. I am amazed that he is to complete it, although not surprised, even though when he was seen on the descent to Honister mines when "he was struggling a bit with cramp".  Just shows what type of guy he is.  I know that he has an hour or so to go but I congratulate him on his achievement.  Well done Dave.  Edit - Had another look your estimate seems a better one than mine!

 Can someone tell him that the record for over seventies is not 4 days 16 hours and he is entitled to take the last few miles slowly!

Looks like he'[censored] the coast - amazing - not far now.  Perhaps he was just damping down expectations when we bumped into him on Thursday!

I'd imagine that once he got the Lakes section out of the way and felt better, and with the knowledge that it would get "easier" that would give him a boost. I wonder how it would feel doing it in the other direction in less than 5 days and having the Lakes section at the end.

maybe that's another challenge for Slogger  :D

True, however he's done this I am in awe - perhaps it was me and my daughter's encouragement  ;D


Not sure what the censored word is in my post - thought it was hit - ahh now I get it, I put "he's" then "hit" .

The most I've ever walked in one day is 18 miles (if my memory is behaving itself). I was a wreck the next day. Slogger, like pdstsp, I am in awe.

I don't know whether the tracker is doing its usual thing or whether he has finished and gone into a pub with thick walls.  Anyway I am sure he has finished, hope that he remembered his stone to throw into the sea or he will have to go back and get one. 

Well done.  50 miles on the last day. 

The last and only time I have walked that far, without walking 4 days beforehand, was on the flat when I was 16 - 55 years ago! O0 O0 O0 O0 O0 O0 O0 O0

Yes must have finished now, hasnít updated for half an hour. Perhaps the signal was lost as he was heading down the hill to the bay? Just at the crucial moment! Well done  O0
