Hi everyone. This morning I had bowl of cereal and started my walk at 8am. I planned to walk by the river and wasn’t sure how long this would take. My goal today was a 20 minute walk. I took the walking bridge across the river which is only a few minutes from home. I was pleased to pass another walker and her well behaved little black dog. It wasn’t long before there was a constant smattering of people, many with dogs, on the walking track by the river.
I tried to quicken my pace today as I still wasn’t feeling puffed. I guess I’ll get better at that eventually. I looked for the second bridge which I knew was coming up. I saw it through the gum trees and was looking forward to getting on the home stretch. But the bridge didn’t seem to come as soon as I thought. Did I pass it? If I did that would mean I would end up near the main road and I knew that would be a bit much for me. I kept walking. Surely I would see the footbridge soon. I would have to pay attention next time. But then I saw it. Yes, I happily turned onto the bridge. I even saw the little well behaved black dog again. By now my hips were aching. I wasn’t really puffed. I slowed down before home and knew that this was my current distance limit. I checked the clock – 40 minutes. Okay, so I’d done more than necessary. I felt a bit wonky when I sat down but pleased that I’d done the walk at all. I’m quite pleased with myself.
If anyone would like to say hi or make a comment, I’d appreciate knowing that you’re with me. Wherever you may be. Stay tuned and tomorrow it’s back to the exercises. HAPPY NEW YEAR!
