Out for a walk today, just under four miles. That made for a (for me) not bad 23.5 miles walked this week. At the moment my morning walks are happening whilst it dark, so it is very nice at the weekend to get out for a bit. I had the thought today “It’s nice to be out in the sun” – I’m sure that’s a line from a song, but I can’t think what.
In 2019 I discovered the walk1000 scheme. I think it was through getting the Country Walking magazine as a subscription for Christmas. The target is to walk 1000 miles in a year. That means walking 2.78 miles every day. There were some days when for what ever reason (mainly chuckling it down) I wouldn’t go for a walk. Luckily I was able to clock up the 1000 miles.
I signed up to do it in 2020. I was doing OK until March. Then the family insisted I didn’t go out. Rather than cause an argument, I didn’t. That meant I lost at least 6 weeks That’s nearly 120 mile I lost. I just thought there was no way I was going to make that up, so I just gave up really.
I haven’t formally signed up to do it this year, but I am trying. Hence I am happy to mention the distance I have walked. Which is more than the minimum, so I’m happy with that.
