Yesterday, we spent most of the day in the garden getting it ready for winter. We haven’t finished, and will probably give it another good going next weekend. Still even though I did a quick walk in to town to get lunch from Greggs (yes, we were a bit naughty) which is only about a mile and a half. Even so, I managed to clock up over 22,500 steps, and only about 4,000 of those were the trip in to town. It goes to show just how much exercise is involved in a bit of gardening.
Today was a bit different, a bit more relaxed. By the time we’d been to the garden centre for lunch, and I had been to B&Q to see if I could get the wood for the baseboard on my model railway (I couldn’t, but it’s OK I can wait), I had only managed to clock up a few thousand steps, I do try to aim for 10,000 but unless I went for a walk I wasn’t going to do that. Anyhow, come 5PM I decided that I needed to take a quick walk, so headed off to the promenade via the cockleponds. A very pleasant 2.5 miles and enough to take me over the 10,000.
Looks like the weather is going to be dry in the mornings for the week ahead, so provided I wake up in time, it should be a week of morning & lunchtime walks – good for the mileage.
I think this brings to a close a rather pleasant weekend. I must admit that by the end of the day in the garden I was flagging, and it was nice to stop. I sat down with a cup of tea and nearly fell asleep, but after a nice refreshing shower, I felt as right as rain, and went on to have a lovely zoom with some old friends. So, both days appear to be ending well. Bit frustrated about the wood, but on a scale of L>H, 1-10, I’m at L2, so not a disaster by any means. One thing I will need to do though, is get to grips with a Dremel. Not been massively successful so far, but I can learn.
