Would you be kind enough to help to me to interpret the phrase in bold in the following sentences?
‘Wake up! Live dog! I said to Mars; as I knelt down he sprang from my shoulder, and together we set off down the road at full pelt. Behind us diminishing now in the distance, there arouse an immense roar of laughter.
at full pelt = in full progress, at full blast, flat out, in full swing
Thanks for your efforts.
"Flat out" could be used though.
