I managed to get out for a walk yesterday and today. Only a total of five miles, but that takes my total walked since the beginning of the year to over 250 miles, so I am on target for Walk1000, which is good.
It’s been a very successful walking week, I managed to get my three runs for C25K Week 7 – I count them in my in my miles, I don’t think that is cheating – is it? The weather has been kind, enabling me to get out for my morning walk all five days of the week.
In 2016 I started playing Pokemon Go whilst out on my morning walk. I quite enjoyed playing the game for about a year, and did reasonably well. But I decided that I was a bit fed up with it. So stopped it. Last week, I thought I’d have a look and see how the game has progressed. It’s stil there obviously, some aspects of it have changed. Anyhow, I was getting close to the waterfront, and was focussed on the game so the neighbours had to call out to me otherwise I would have missed them completely.
Many times over the last 220 days I have written about the difficulties I sometimes have in getting up for my morning walk. Understandable really, who would want to get out of a very nice, warm, extremely comfortable bed to go for a walk on a cold morning? I have found that having another incentive to get up really does help. Last week I followed the development of the Magnolia Tree outside St Mary’s Church on the high street. It was very interesting to see, and I will check it out again tomorrow. I wonder what other incentives I could give myself to get up? I’ll have to think about that.
