I know it’s boring

I know that it’s boring and I know that I said I would not be a bore but I’m kind of enthused by my first week’s stats, so here they are.

Look at that – TWELVE miles this week – and four and a half hours on the mill. They used to sentence folks to hard labour on the treadmill in Victorian days, you know.

Day in, day out
Day in, day out

Eight hours a day. Blimey.

I did manage an hour today; an extended walk of 4.5 kilometres. Sadly the treadmill didn’t talk to iFit properly so my workout data got lost. I had to enter it to the best of my recollection through the manual system, which is OK but I did  lose all of my heart rate monitoring data.

Trying to push up the time on the mill over the coming days and aim for 25 km a week – that’s about 15½ miles and not a great deal more than I put in this week, so it should be achievable. Perhaps not in the coming week, with one day spent in town.

I’m away now, to make that cabbage and chestnut bake.

I had a sudden urge to invite all my friends to come and stay and to shareContinue readingBare Naked

A Month in France: Nothing is Lost

I am lagging on the Month in the Country prompts, and lagging badly at that. I have a list of prompts t be caught up on and I shall be working my way through them here, or at Scattered Thoughts depending on where the post most naturally sits. I have elected to tackle the prompts not in date order necessarily but to seize upon prompts that offer me space in which to write down the things that I am feeling the need to say. Even if I need to crowbar it in. The thing is, I am going to continue to be short of time and space in which to write and so a two-for-one is useful and I hope to do as many of those as I can. Seems like a plan? … Continue readingA Month in France: Nothing is Lost
