Update on training walks

This weekend off to Moel Hebog for some uphill stuff along with the two mountains that neighbour Hebog. In October this far have completed a 19 mile walk around the Breacon's summiting Corn Du, Pen-y-Fan , Cribyn and Fan-y-Big , this was done in rain and gales force bluster winds up on the ridges. Also, done leg 1 of the Birmingham to Aberwysth walk out of Birming to Stourbridge on the canals. This walk will feature progressively more in the training, but the big feature of leg1 was walking through the Netherton Canal tunnel at 2800m in the dark (head torch on). This strictly isn't the route in the book but I couldn't resist, as I'm also working on covering all the canals within the Midlands ring of canals.
Planning 2 days off in November to cover more legs of the Thirlmere Way as I'm still interested in completing JOGLE but day and weeks walk(on a different route to next years epic.
