Finally I'm getting organised

I can’t believe that it is nearly a week since I posted – where has the time gone to ????? Where has the year gone to – it is July already (and only 18 sleeps to my birthday !) ????????? What a great weekend we had – we walked for 1 ½ hours on Saturday morning while K was at softball training and then yesterday managed a 20km cycle during the day once it had warmed up a little !!!! YAY !

Al also had a great idea – he would drop me off at work in the morning and I could walk home !!!! I had been saying to him while we were walking that most days I have my clothes to go walking at lunch time but there is always a reason (be it valid or not) about why I can’t walk at lunch time – too cold, too hot, can’t be bothered, have errands to run etc. That was when he came up with this idea of dropping me at work and then I would have to walk home as I don’t want to spend the night here !!!! I didn’t think it was a very good idea to start with but the more I mulled it over, the more I thought that it might work. So, packed my bag this morning and here I am – waiting for 5pm to get changed and then get walking. I am not too sure of the distance (we forgot to measure when we came in this morning but probably about 7 - 7.5kms) and I have no idea of how long it will take me (I am hoping to take just over an hour) so will see how I go.

Other than that – things are going along pretty smoothly. I am managing to get lots of things sorted out at work so I won’t be leaving any sort of mess for someone to walk into. While I always see that as a challenge, not everyone has the same take on walking into a mess !!!

TIAGF : Walking after work.

What a great idea! A walk home is much easier to consider than a walk to and from work. XX

Well done Linda. Having that 'purpose' for walking seems to make it so much easier to do than aimlessly walking at lunch. I still feel I get more out of the walk to and from the car in the morning than the walk at lunch.

Good on you. Soon you will be asking to walk to work as well LOL. What great training for the C2S..

Have a wonderful day Linda :D

Wish I could walk home from work too. It would be a great way to make sure I did some exercise at least 5 days a week. Well done!
