Between Saturday 16 January (the day after ceasing to be employed) and Friday 22 January, we walked on six out of seven days and covered 55 miles*. Hardly an earth-shattering number, but I was rather pleased with it (even if my legs are still undecided as to whether to forgive me for the sudden shock).
That pleasing statistic set me to thinking about how many (or rather, how few) miles per week I’ve been motivated to get out and cover over the last four months. Here’s the answer:
We will be setting out from Kent in just under 2 months time, and to make sure that I’m in a fit state to enjoy the walk, I’ll be aiming for the mileages for the next eight weeks to look nearer to the ‘Week 13’ column rather than like the ‘Week 1’ column.
(*We’ll gloss over the fact that this week’s 55 miles involved less ascent than we would often cover in a single day in a hillier place)
