A walk?

Since the beginning of the New Year I have been reading about the steps I should be taking to increase my fitness after hurting my back.  Part of my plan is to start walking regularly, something I used to do everyday when I was in full time employment; I walked in my morning break, at lunch time and regularly walked to and from work when the weather was reasonable.  However since retirement over a year ago my routines have changed.  For sometime now I have only been walking occasionally; this had to change and so for a few days now I have been building up my fitness with morning exercises AND going out for a walk everyday.  It hasn’t been easy but not because I’m not motivated but because the weather here has been so very poor.

However I have set myself a goal and even though the wind has been blowing since early morning and it has been raining AGAIN I did leave home to stride along some of the local lanes.

On these islands of Britain and Ireland there are many ways to describe a walk.  Today’s walk wasn’t a bimble or a dander or a doddle or even a soodle; I have heard that if I were a Scot I might say that I was spangin’, walking vigorously.  Way to go!
