I haven't been out and about walking much lately due to my allergies but this afternoon I felt a desperate need to do so.
October 1st and a wonderful Autumn day. Cool and crisp with a lovely blue sky and a light breeze. The forecast for the next few days is not so good so today was the day.
I had pulled a muscle in my back when changing the bed linen recently and had been in pain for a day or so. A walk ought to loosen me up so off I popped.
From our front gate the lane rises quite steadily up to a car parking area before it levels off and I started off at a very brisk pace, to see how far I could keep it up. I was pleased with myself for managing it right up to the top.
The view was my reward...
On the way back to the house..
Only half an hour, but I feel better for it.
Hope you enjoyed your walk JayCee. Showery here today before Storm Alex arrives. The third picture with the lane and trees looks like a painting.ReplyDelete
Thanks Dave. It was very bright in the sunshine so I think that had an effect on the photo.Delete
I expect Alex will turn up here tomorrow.
Pork dripping, WD40 or vegetable oil - Lord Peregrine could choose any one of these for the post-walk massage. By the way, lovely sharp pictures JayCee.ReplyDelete
Thanks YP. The photos are only taken on my 'phone but I think the bright sunshine helps.Delete
If P were to offer a massage he would probably be more likely to use a light sandpaper. "Toughen you up old girl".
I could direct him to some instructive massage videos.Delete
I feel the same about walking. I dont always feel like making the effort but I invariablt feel better when i have done so.ReplyDelete
Fresh air and exercise. Wonderful medicine.Delete
Beautiful pix. We got our first snowfall today, a little late, but thankfully it has gone already.ReplyDelete
Wonderful place to walk. Hope your back is betterReplyDelete
Thanks LA. A hot water bottle is currently doing the trick.Delete
They do say that walking is good for a bad back, I should try it.ReplyDelete
It hurt at first but the pain eased off after a few minutes.Delete
Sitting on the sofa seems to make mine worse.
I see animals and faces in most clouds. Not those, though - well, there might be a horse or two.ReplyDelete
If I squint a little I can see a fox peeking out at the top of the first one.Delete
Lovely views. Exercise can help an aching back. Better to use it than lose it, as they say.ReplyDelete
I am certainly losing my marbles!Delete
