So easy when the evenings get darker to just stay warm on the sofa - but there's nothing quite like the different warmth you feel after picking yourself up, grabbing some lights, and going for an evening cycle over the downs!
Very wet n windy walk today
I bought an adult scooter (not electric!) during lock down due to an injury preventing me from running. I use it nearly every day, either to exercise or scoot to the shops which has replaced using the car.
Now the weather has turned I'm determined to keep scooting but may need to invest in a wetsuit!!!
Windy and wet walk on Telscombe Tye
Stopped at the Long man Brewery this morning whilst cycling over the Downs - a bit too early for a pint though !
Celebrating my daughters 21st we opted to walk to the restaurant when we may have been tempted to use the car to carry the home baked cake and feeling tired after a day at work. We walked the couple of miles and it was so easy and relaxing!
Cycled along the off-road footpath/cycle path after work yesterday to go to the supermarket, and cruised passed long queues of traffic waiting at the temporary traffic lights. So I got the exercise, saved the carbon AND got there faster!
Pouring with rain as I left work but I resisted calling my partner for a car lift home. I loved the freedom and challenge of the wet road conditions. Soaked but happy!
I walked the furthest (16.7 miles) in one day that I have walked for years. I wish the roads could go back to being as quiet as they were a few months ago as I so enjoyed cycling on local roads.
Cycled to work at the hospital both days this weekend. Felt refreshed and ready to start the day when I arrived, plus I didn't have to sit in the usual car park queue. #SmugNurse
Only one day to go. After a few tough months adjusting, now looking forward to recording my daily activity!
Looking forward to the Challenge in October!
