Sep 2022 – Walking target achieved!

Back in November 2020, in the midst of a national Covid lockdown, we set out to do a different circular walk each week. At some point, this turned into a project to complete 52 different walks (one for each week of a walking year) and to document those walks on this website. Well, given (thankfully) all the disruptions of a return to a more normal life, it has taken us almost two years. But this week we achieved our target!

November – a year of walks

We’ve now chalked up a year of our weekly walking project. We haven’t quite maintained the weekly pace the whole way through, as this month saw our 35th local walk (we’ve also recorded a handful of non-local ones). As life becomes more normal in this phase of the pandemic, there’s more to interrupt our regular walk slot. Thankfully, that’s included being able to travel, particularly to see family – we missed walking earlier this month partly because Joy was doing just that. Still, we’re building up a nice list (which can be seen here) and got back to it later in the month.
