Dear husband and I walked to Subway for lunch. It is a 10km round trip! I had already jogged on my tramp for half an hour before breakfast, so by the time we returned home my steps were 19,325!!!! If anyone had told me last year to go for a ten km walk just for fun I think I would have either laughed or cried. Now I can do it easily. The bottoms of my feet are burning slightly, but apart from that I am fine. We called in to see my Dear Son at his work on the way and he couldn't believe it. He said "that's what cars are for". He also asked me if I had my taxi fare in case I couldn't make it home (actually I did take a bus fare just in case). We think we might try to do the walk most weekends now the weather is improving, so that should be fun. It was a lovely morning and we walked in one way and home another, so it was quite interesting. DH has now gone for a 10km run! I'm not that keen. The walk has made me more hungry though, but I figure I can afford to eat more today!
P.S. Thinking of my Dear Father who would have been 95 today! He has been gone 15 years and I still miss him. He was taken unfairly in a car accident and I often wonder just how old he would have been if he had died naturally, as he was 80 going on 60 in mind, spirit and body. Anyway, I am sure he is having a game of bowls and a few beers to celebrate his Birthday in the Great Bowling Club you know where!
