This Wednesday was a day for walking...one, because my hubby said he would take the boys to school and two, because I had a bit of a flap. In September, we have signed up for a The Brecon Mountain Trail Challenge, which is a twenty or thirty mile walk up a range of mountains in Mid-Wales. I quietly thought, 'that's fine, I can get fit by then' and then I had a sudden panic, what if I just couldn't do it!
So out I went, dog, water, camera, pedometer and Ipod and hit the coast path. The day started off grey and a bit cold, but half way around I was stripping off and getting a little hot under the collar.
The flowers were out in force and having my camera to hand meant a good excuse to stop and take a
Banks of colour
(I have to admit to being fairly happy that there were many reasons to stop to take a photo)
I clocked about seven miles, so a little way to go to reach the twenty I will do on the big day....but I'm on my way!
This beach is a bit of a locals' secret, it's not easy to get to, and so doesn't tend to be found by the tourists ;-)
These towers are used for guiding the boats in....although there is also a lighthouse just around the corner too....I'm imagining that these conduct some kind of signal(?)
So this is not the first walk, as Chester and I walk every day, but this is the first effort to atleast start heading in the right direction....wish me luck (and any tips for building my stamina for uphill walking)
Tomorrow, we are all jetting off to foreign lands (England) to visit my sister for a couple of days......sooooo excited I can't tell you!
Be back next week to catch up with knitting....there has been some!
