Completed second training walk today and got a bit wet. Great walk though, and even though at times I was asking myself why am I doing this, I would turn a corner past a copse of trees and look out over fields laid out before me, and think 'Outdoors is beautiful'. I know that doesn't really convey the magnificence of some of those moments you have when walking, but it turned out to be a damp but worthwhile day. Here's some pics:
Didn't quite walk as far as I wanted but I had to change my route as the fields north of Swithland were like the Somme! Did just shy of 8 miles in exactly 3 hours. Check out the route on Runkeeper here:
