I’ve been been trying to ramp up my base level of activity, to make up for my otherwise unfocused training.
Because of the winter daylight hours, I’ve spent an abnormal amount of time with a headlamp on, trying to do the extra k’s. It has also meant I’m exploring further afield. I have been lucky though as it turns out that someone spent some time recently building a fully lit, dedicated walk/cycle way, that is virtually on my back doorstep.
I often have just the dogs for company. The road, that the cycleway parallels, is often very quiet and the scenery isn’t half bad either.
The temperature is something that has been more noticeable, in its absence recently. but it hasnt stopped the exploring and on the good days it’s really just magic.
