…Jan 1st 2014. This year 2014 I aim to really give it a good old go at getting into shape…a more healthy shape that is. In order to do this I am going to tackle the defeat of my portliness (wow the spell checker actually approved that word!) on the traditional dual fronts of diet and exercise…varying kinds of exercise not just going for a ten mile walk every six weeks nooooo sir. This time I aim to walk at least one mile every day…and I do mean every day! This has started today with a walk around my little urban warm up route touching the border of Churchtown then back through Cambridge Ward (a name of an area used by only myself and local government polling authorities!) and back home…except that this time I threw in an amble around the lovely Hesketh Park as well for good measure…there is even a slight incline in the region of fifteen feet, give or take five feet…it’s a start!
Total distance would probably be just short of two miles, virtually no ascension and the time would have been about forty five minutes (hey I was taking it easy y’know!).
