HM2014 – 8th May

Damn the rain! It’s been so miserable here the last couple of days, although that didn’t stop me from getting all my walks in yesterday. I started the morning with a 7am walk around Yeadon Tarn, which was pretty peaceful.

I then went out at lunch for a mile walk around the local park/housing estate. I must have been walking faster thanĀ I thought because when I got back to the office, not only was I soaked from the rain but I was also very hot! I also managed to turn the bar on the ‘steps’ graph on Fitbit to green, which I don’t do very often!

Then after work I went to Golden Acre for a walk around. I would have done two laps round, but the rain put a stop to that! Instead, I went home and walked on the spot for an hour while I watched TV, so I still got to my 10,000 steps goal!

My morning walk around Yeadon Tarn this morning was not pleasant. I don’t know if I overdid it a bit yesterday, but the tops of my feet were really hurting when I was walking. Hopefully a slower stroll around Golden Acre tonight will help. It is pretty cool to watch the planes taking off on a morning though, even if some idiot has scrawled graffiti over all the signs round the lake!

Red sky in the morning, Shepherd’s warning

I’ve kinda been slacking on my morning walks recently, which is definitely reflected in my average daily steps on Fitbit. It’s really hard to make it to target when you stay sat on your backside! The sky was vividly red this morning though, a brilliant welcome back, and an excellent motivator to get back out there tomorrow!
