Long Training Walk But Never More Than 2 Miles From Home!
However ..... on the 15th, the weather looked as though it was going to seriously rain. Still ...... we didn't walk the previous Saturday for the same reason and basically, we can't afford not to walk, otherwise we just won't have enough time to work up to the distance we need to do.
So, with the aid of John's walking SatNav you can see him fiddling with here, John devised a long walk round the Lea Valley park so that we were never more than about 2 miles from home, so if things got too wet, we could escape home!
The walk started on a bad note, however. When trying to tightly tie up the laces of my boots, I tore off the leather repair that John did a few weeks ago where one of the lace holes are! This made the walk a little awkward but ..... no doubt about it, I definately need to get new boots!
As it happens, it didn't rain at all although it was quite cold. According to John's gizmo, we walked 13.17 miles in 4 hours and 15 minutes at an average speed of 3.3 mph.
