Bench with a view

Closer to home again and I've resolved to get fitter by having a 'proper' walk most days. Hmm, not that I'm always managing it... Instinctively, it seems to me that 'little but often' would be the best practice, maybe 2 or 3 miles a day - but in fact some days I'm doing very little and other days much more. Binge exercising, in fact! I'm not sure on the relative merits of this...
Anyway, I did a little cardio-vascular workout by walking through Roberts Park and up the steep path beside the Glen Tramway, onto Shipley Glen. It was lovely up there, though a bit muddy underfoot. The autumn colours are fast fading as the leaves fall but still very pretty and there is a fine view over the Aire valley. It was a four mile round trip, so I felt good about that.


  1. That really is lovely up there! Good for a nice walk!

  2. A beautiful picture. Great composition and colours. I try to walk five days a week for an hour. A good way to get motivated is to wear a "Fitbit" or similar device. We could be walking buddies and encourage each other.

  3. What a beautiful spot, jennyfreckles.

    The American Heart Association recommends a minimum of 10,000 steps a day, which for me amounts to about five miles. I wear a fitbit (as diane b suggests) to keep track. Life has become a bit complicated in the past two months so there have been some days I have missed, but it is a good goal.
