Hi All, the weather here is still pretty awful so I've resorted to going to gym classes, a 30 min HIIT class today, my legs are still wobbly but I did enjoy it.

How's everyone else doing, have you been getting half decent weather?

Pleased to hear you enjoyed the gym Ruby.

Was fine today so I had a good hike along the seafront. Lovely sea air and the aroma of Harry Ramsden's waffing into the nostrils :D

Been told it’s the easy route we’re taking, don’t know which that is.
Walking group is really picking up. Doing 2 walks/month on Sundays and now 2 others Wednesday and/or Friday. Some are local about 3hrs, others longer about 4hrs and further away. Can’t do them all though.

Done it 3 times in my much younger days. They’re now looking at the Brecon Beacons (Mid Wales) and the Lakes. Never been to the Brecons but done many a walk round the Lakes and mountain.

They all sound great spats, I don't think I'll ever be fit enough to take on a challenge like that, good luck with it.

Walk this weekend in Derbyshire peaks - only about 3 hrs though. Staffs and Derbys peaks aren’t too far away and loads of walks there. The group seem to have 2-3 walks a week lined up so hope to be able to get on a good few over the next month or so

Oh joy - got up in the hills today. Muddy at the bottom (gained about an inch in height - much appreciated) but dry on top. Gorgeous morning and lovely scenic hike ;)?
