Is it because I lied when I was 17?

Whatever happened to Travis?

Today's walk was another opportunity for me to test out my waterproofs. They did a very good job, but I think I may be getting a little too used to walking through puddles....

The walk was a, not unimpressive, 10 miles, I am starting to get back to the fitness I had before my enforced break from training. I'm pretty pleased with myself that I did this walk, although I wouldn't particularly reccommend it to anyone. I walked from Norwich to Brundall, a route that I've been meaning to do for a while but never achieved before, all other routes I'd considered ended up with me being on the wrong side of the A47, river or train line.

The route took me through the cathedral grounds and up Ketts Hill, (the hill reminded me that I now really need to get hill walking back into my training schedule) before taking me out of the city through Thorpe St Andrew. I then walked through to Great Plumstead and into Blofield and then Brundall. The whole route was along roads, with about half the walk having pavements, the rest leaving me to jump out the way of oncoming cars. All very boring and non-descript I'm afraid. Still, it was nice to do a walk that led to somewhere, rather than having to return the way I'd come.

So, no nice pictures, no beautiful views, but it was a good distance for training, and one more thing off my to do list.
