Well after my last post it would appear that there are many like minded people as myself, that is to say grumpy buggers, who'd have thought it! Fortunately today's walk around Nercwys Forest was uninterrupted by people, well fortunately for other people I suppose.
In my efforts to get back on track to rid myself of this rotundness once and for all I have set a goal for myself, a thirty five mile walk within fifteen and a half hours. The walk is in aid of charity and is called the Llangollen Round Challenge (rather apt considering my shape) and takes place at the end of May. Well this year is totally out of the question in my present condition, or lack of condition that is, but in twelve months time that's my goal.
So walks for me have taken on a more serious demeana hence, as I mentioned in the last post, the lack of photographs. Though I will also be taking time to walk the trails simply for pleasure as well and the camera will then accompany me. This being said I couldn't resist a couple of pics taken on my phone of Bramble trying to entice Nelly into some suspiciously murky water today..
I'm afraid that 'Bramble the Mud Siren' failed in her mission and 'Nelly the Dry' survived unsoaked.
So there you have it from a thoroughly knackered John, a target has been set (bugger). I need to write up yesterday's walk alongside Llangollen canal, a leisure walk for George and myself without the terrible twosome. Oh and don't start about me leaving the two little buggers behind, a whole walk alongside water with the Bear? not a pleasure walk at all! I'll be writing it up tomorrow now and publishing on Blog Walking tomorrow evening m'thinks. But tonight a beef and kidney casserole that placed in the oven nearly six hours ago needs eating, then a very hot shower and then to bed m'thinks. Til the next time, take care.
