The 1,000 mile challenge set by Country Walking magazine. What can I say? Smashed it. To all manner of smithereens. 500 to be precise, having passed the 1,000 miles on the 9th of September, I pushed on. And on. And on. Until on the 22nd December I made it to 1,500 miles and felt it was time to hibernate for the rest of the year.
Being an insufferable nerd, I did all manner of recording in order to verify my achievements and found that almost 1,000 miles were done just through the daily commute. If that wasn’t enough, I walked 140 odd miles at lunchtime! Crazy.
On the downside, hiking made up just 160 miles so I’ll definitely need to concentrate on quality, not quantity next year!
