The most original title to date! I had a look at Juneathon after Never2late4 mentioned it, and I decided that I could probably do this. Now, I am flexing the “rules” a little bit, in that I won’t be running every day. I don’t think I could to be honest, and I definitely wouldn’t want to – forcing the issue will suck the joy out of running. I will exercise every day though, and the majority of it will be running.
Today, M suggested that we go for a walk along the coastal path of the Jurassic Coast. After a spot of lunch, off we headed to Orcombe Point to pick up the path. I haven’t been along that path for many years. I forget how pretty it is (especially on a day like today).
Now, originally, M had mentioned that he’d like to go to Otterton. He has absolutely no idea of how far that would have been. It was really nice to be outside, chattering on, panting and nearly dying up the cliffs, but rewarded with some beautiful sights.
Along the route, we kept seeing signs for how far away the villages or towns were. Having now mapped the route on mapometer, it would appear that the signs were in fact measured in country or Welsh miles. Upon arrival into Budleigh, it was time for a drink, so we nipped into the Spar to get some water, before continuing our journey home.
Rather than go back the way we came, we decided to go along the old railway line, which meant trekking out of Budleigh and picking up a woodland path, crossing a field, and then walking down the old railway line. As we arrived back into town, we decided tea would be salad and cold meats.
My feet hurt now. I can’t remember the last time I walked so far. Given the country mile markers, I really wasn’t sure how far we’d walked. Mapometer says 10.27 miles.
It is now time to put my feet up, mentally prepare myself for getting up and going to the park tomorrow with my friend to do our urban gym thang.
