I’m officially heading to Shropshire in a couple of weeks, for my second camping trip/British adventure of the summer.
My pitch has been booked at the camp site and, in this post, I’m going to list a few of the items I hope to achieve there.
I immediately feel as though this past month is going to be one in which I’ve ‘under-achieved’, when it comes to my overall mileage…
That’s in spite of recent attempts to ‘boost’ my tally over the weekend now behind us and, of course, the time I spent down in Cornwall.
This was the weekend prior to my Cornwall trip. With little motivation to get up early on the Saturday, I still felt as though I should attempt something in preparation for the undulations of coastal walking to follow in seven-days’ time.
Almost a year since my first visit to Wellow, I decided I would head out there again. Mileage would not reach double-figures but, in the space of an afternoon, I’d get some exercise and might also be able to create another walk for the Bristol-based Ramblers group.
I fear I’m going to be disappointed with my tally for the month that was June. It began so very well and I felt confident that I’d be able to break a century, with relative ease.
But in the second half of the month – and, what seems destined to continue in to July – we saw a large amount of rainfall among many grey days. Does anyone else remember the heatwave at the beginning of June?
Let’s take a look…
We approached this walk with a slight feeling of sadness, as it will be the penultimate walk in our challenge to walk the Somerset Coast Path in its entirety.
Setting off from one of the many free parking bays beside the seafront of Blue Anchor, we were destined for a finish at Porlock Weir.
What happened to the month of May?!
Suddenly, it’s June. Yet, I’m fairly certain it was the end of April, only two weeks ago…
In that case, it’s time for a monthly review of my efforts in the Walk 1000 Miles challenge.
