Every little step I take

Out for a rout

My walks now seem to follow the nature of my blogs for how I start out is usually not an indicator of how it would end. In many cases, I would step out of my home in a direction and constantly recalibrate my course sometimes unaware of where I would end up for charting my course back home.

Today, after my early evening nap, I woke to a weather forecast of thunderstorms at 20:00 hours, which meant I only had about 90 minutes to get my walk in. I also packed my waterproof poncho, though I was not sure how I would fare in driving rain.

Packing in parks

Out towards Ashton, I turned to Ardwick and through the Ardwick Green Park and towards Longsight and then turning to Birchfields Park that I was visiting for the first time, by which time I had done 6 kilometres and I would have done my 10,000 steps at just over 7 kilometres.

From there, I turned back towards home and though I had my stopover at St. Peter’s Square for a chat to Brian and then did some shopping, it is after 22:00 hours and still no rain. Hopefully, it would rain overnight, and we can get some cool. I only managed 11.57 kilometre and in 6 days of properly recording my walks, 91.90 kilometres.

There is still some work to do, but what matters is I enjoy this more than sweating it out in a gym.
