Hope runners/walkers are managing to get out into the spring air for some exercise <:)>

No running or walking here - only snow digging :roll:
But I will get my skis out later and try to make a path for tomorrow. It's about waist deep now (for me) on foot and still knee deep on skis, so it's seriously calorie-burning stuff!
This "spring" has been exceptional - it started snowing hard in January and didn't stop...
But the sun is back and it's shining now and everything looks beautiful (trying to look at the sight of completely buried car/veranda etc. as a work of art, not yet another huge "to-do" item).
I'll post some pics of my "walk" when I find my camera card adaptor :-)

Happy spring walks/runs, all :-)
And happy bleaching, Newtie.

Look forward to that Luna ;)? Hope you've finished with the snow digging now.

Nice couple of walks in the spring sunshine today. Just me and the birds (+ a lot of sheep).

I've been a lazy cow since they shut the gyms but the weather's a lot better, so I'm going to try and get out tomorrow.

Same here Ruby. Hope you manage to get out <:)>

Frosty start here and a beautiful clear blue sky - I'm escaping into the hills ;)?

That must be lovely for you Pickles. Don't hardly get any planes here (at the foot of the hills so they steer well clear). Used to get quite a lot of planes where I used to live though and it was annoying sometimes out in the garden. Enjoy the quiet while it lasts ;)?

Good to see families going for walks together in my village during the current situation (hope it doesn't stop when this is over). I always enjoyed family walks as a child.

This week the weather couldn't have been better and been making the most of it by taking myself off for some lovely walks. No problem keeping my distance from others (plenty of open space to go round) and a treat after all the rain over the autumn/winter months.

Hope everyone is managing to get some exercise too <:)>

Hiya folks - sorry had another tech glitch ()o
All my distance walks have been cancelled :cry: (and probably the 26 mile charity hike in September) so looks as if I'll be pounding the streets again :roll:

Lovely hill walk today. Was quite hot at 9am when I set off. Really good to get out in the fresh air and just walk ;)?

The hills were alive this morning with the sound of my boots. Gorgeous day and I set off at 9 am to beat the midday heat. Absolutely gorgeous 3 hours ;)?

Hope others are managing to get out for some great exercise in the fresh air.
