Finished third week of getting at least a 10K steps daily.
Took the dogs for long walks in the downs both days of the weekend. Long, slightly hilly, and entirely off road. Just the kind of walks I love. Grabbed a coffee and some quiet time at the café in the evening, and then dropped K off at Woking.
Finished second week of getting at least a 10K steps daily.
Went for a long walk with the dogs – down the downs and along the river. Went to town to grab a coffee and sit quietly at the café for an hour with a book. Then walked down and up the high street in the freezing cold. Met an old park run buddy ( Charlie) and his owner.
Now resting on the sofa, not thinking about work tomorrow. Instead, still slightly lost in the twobooks I finished this weekend. Both dealt with loss. One also had a lot of trail walking and outdoors.
Today’s walk was the Stockghyll and Blue hill round, with a short detour to pillar pike for the views.
Also went for morning and evening strolls around Rothay park. Met lots of young & hyper puppies, and a few friendly oldies.
Cooked (almost) full English for breakfast that got approving nods from R and Chewie.
Finished reading Roseanna in between.
For tomorrow’s walking, I need to decide between two options. If the legs agree, my preference is a longer, solo, multi peak walk across some of the higher hills that I know well and love. The other option is two short-medium walks. A solo morning hike up Loughrigg fell from Grasmere end, then a walk up to Easedale tarn with R&C later in the day.
An 11K run with the boy, and some gardening in the evening is all it took to get the step and the floors targets.
A long sleep helped. The cool, if humid, weather helped. A happy boy helped. A first week, in a month, of running all four runs helped. Spending all of Friday in bed reading while hugging the boy also helped.
It was a better week on the personal front. Ran twice, first runs in 2021. Mediated once, first in 2021. Cajoled R into making a decision on the car, one way or the other. Rested and read. Slipped a bit on the sleep front, made up a bit today.
The black spot was the weight. Recorded a high weight of 91.3kg, and a high weekly average of 90.8kg.
