I finished January having walked 61 miles. By my reckoning, I should be averaging 2.74 miles a day so am currently about 24 miles behind. But, I will not get despondent – it’s only January and longer days are ahead!

I have done a fair amount of pavement pounding and what I would term “functional” walks, for example, walking to the shop rather than driving. I try to get out in my lunch break, but this doesn’t always happen. One of the walks I do over and again is what I call my Lunchtime Canal Circular which begins at Bridgwater docks, follows the canal as it loops around Bridgwater before cutting back to work.
I have increased my miles by parking on the outskirts and walking in to work and this is something that I will try to continue to do because it forces me to “get my walk in” whatever the weather!
I have come to the conclusion though that I don’t even mind walking in the rain too much, as long as I have the right coat on!
