I Aten’t Ded

Yes, not blogged for a while. Sorry. Blogging and running have both taken a bit of a back‐burner, with both my fortieth birthday and the weather getting in the way a bit… My last run was a while back. Last Friday, I at least went on a 10K photo walk through the fresh snow, which […]

New Year’s Day

I didn’t run yesterday, on New Year’s Day. But I did hopefully set the tone for the year by getting out for some decent exercise. I went out with the vague thought of walking around the harbourside, and ended up doing nearly 10K around my preferred Leigh Woods route. Hopefully that’s also started me off […]

A Walk Instead

I was going to head out into Sunday’s sunshine for a pleasant daytime jog, but I got a call from a couple of very hungover friends who had ambitions on fresh air a bit further afield. We ended up doing this circular walk from Blagdon including Burrington Ham. It was a good way to spend […]

Today we spent a few hours wandering around the Elterwater area. At the end, we headed for the lovely Chesters By The River cafe, and I rewarded myself with salmon and pea frittata, which was lush 😀

More hiking yesterday. A quick 13km round trip to Ambleside. Nice. Snapped this tree with the little secondhand Panasonic LX3 I bought specially for hiking. Turned out quite well, I thought.

Out for a Wander

No running this week so far, but I made up for it with a 14‐kilometre wander around the Crinke Crags. Hard work, but worth it for the views 😀

Matt Gets Walking

December 18th, 2011 Comments off

After two consecutive Christmas parties, I wasn’t feeling up for a run today. But when I finally drew the blinds and found out it was a lovely sunny day, I figured I should get some exercise. So I wandered out for a little walk that turned into 9K around Leigh Woods. Not much to report, […]
