This weekend was a beautiful one, absolutely perfect for a stroll in the park. Everyone was peeling off their winter layers, for at last a bit of sunshine on our beaming faces.
I did a 10 mile round walk early Sunday morning and I actually found it pretty ok. I could quite happily get up the next day and go again, I was a little sleepy afterwards but I think I needed to manage my food intake better. More food at the beginning.
I of course did my standard Richmond park route with an added 4 miles, lots of lovely things passed me by on route, the main thing I enjoyed was when two strangers dogs decided to have a little session right in the middle of the path. Oh how I did chuckle.
I trialled a little power up pouch which was interesting, quite enjoyed the little kick.
Lots of happy trees along route.
do not pick the mushies.
I had a lovely walk and I can’t wait to go again, this time I will increase the weight of my bag and go for a little further. Next walk Putney to Holborn Viaduct 6am.
See you all soon!
I decided some new boots were in order for my walk. I needed good quality boots, a reliable brand and of course a pair that looked super sexy!
What better brand to buy from than North Face!
I am going to walk to Battersea this Sunday and trial them out, so so so so excited.
A big thank you to North Face for being the brand you are today.
Brand: North Face
Style: Wreck Goretex mid boots
Love love love x
I have put together a basic training program for my walk. There are many different approaches to take and mine is most probably not right at all but it is what suits me and it is what I can fit into my weeks… I will trial it for January and then make amendments each month onwards.
2 runs a week (spread throughout the week) approx 5k distance
1 session of Yoga or Pilates
After work walk – work to home/ home around the block etc. (1 hour+/ approx 3 miles)
Every day walk from Waterloo to work and back (1.5 miles each way)
Weekend morning walk (15miles +)
20 min walk with extremely heavy bag (twice- three times a week)
If anyone has any tips or changes please let me know, of course as I get closer to the walk I will be doing more long distances in a row, but I think for me this is good!
