this is morning’s walk could have lasted forever. Warm sunshine peeping through white cloud, the temperature rising with every step I took, and I was full of energy. I decided to take a diversion from the usual route and headed up past the cricket ground. I then chose to walk further again up a very steep hill. What goes up must come down and round the corner the slope began to fall.
Already I had done more than planned and now there was another choice. I turned right and headed even further away from home. This road was busy with traffic thundering by, people are waking up now. I soon turn off and rejoin a familiar road, this time heading home.
I am moving along in this challenge, some days are better than others, today was a good day. Later I managed to add to the steps just doing my daily routing and ended up on a respectable 15,000 odd steps. Diabetes UK really knew what they were doing setting this challenge up. It is hard enough to feel a sense of achievement, yet do’able enough to succeed.
