Thirty times fifteen

Since 17 January I have walked more than five miles a day, every day.

That was quite straightforward: it just meant taking a slightly more circuitous route between home and the bus stop on my way to and from work.

I was concerned this would be difficult to keep up once I started working from home. I shouldn't have worried.

Since 3 April I have walked more than ten miles a day, every day.

I invested the time I wasn't on the bus in more walking. I found I was "walking to work" daily, even though the office was in the next room. Five miles there, five miles back.

Then as the evenings got lighter after Easter, I went slightly crazy.

Since 23 April I have walked more than fifteen miles a day, every day.

Today this stops. I can't see how I can sustain fifteen miles into the next month, so it's time to dial back the effort.

It's been fun though. I've completed my Neighbourhood Walks, and have a further dozen or so recreational walks to write up. There's a reason to all this walking; I must write about it sometime. But for now, it's good to know that 500 miles in a month isn't a problem and that I can still hold down a job at the same time!
