OK, time for some exercise. The comfort of my new home is starting to become a habit and I’ve been spending way too much time indoors lately. The Birmingham to Wolverhampton canal route is one I’ve done many times. Its easy to walk and access the much needed train back at the finish line.
Going to keep this post pretty much text free and serve up a load of pictures instead.
Danger, Selfie Alert!
A friend has rightly pointed out that there are very few selfies on this website, its because I’m so shy 😉
So in a break with tradition and to keep him happy, I’ve added one to the pictures below (you have been warned!).
Doing the longer walks with someone else will always have its advantages (least of all from a safety point of view) but going it alone means you can set a good pace and nothing can get in the way.
By keeping the messing around to a minimum, I managed to cover the 13 miles in just over 5 hours (5 hr 11 min), which is a new record for this route. The excellent walking weather really helped with just enough wind to cool things down, even ended up with a nice top up to the tan a summer outdoors has giving me 🙂
