My walking log (which is a series of very simple spreadsheets and not the grand leather bound book that the word ‘log’ may suggest) tells me that by 24 March 2006 I had walked 47 miles over 5 outings.
Last year I had walked 117.5 miles over 9 outings, giving an average mileage of 13 miles per outing.
This year I have walked 183 miles over 21 walks giving a rather low average of just 8.7 miles.
The averages are, of course, deceptive as they are easily skewed by a couple of very short walks.
Of this year’s 183 miles, 70 have been walked in my Scarpa ZG65s (aka my LEJOG boots). Forty have been walked in my Roclites, which are also footwear contenders for the early stages of the walk. I have no recorded stats for my Salomon XA Pro, but they must have done over 100 miles.
I have no conclusions to draw from any of that – I just thought that I would lob it in.
