I am using the 15KinMay challenge as an opportunity to catch up with my walking blog. I walk at a faster pace than my write-ups and, for those who know how fast I walk, you will realise that means my write-ups are produced very slowly indeed. I am always a few days behind.
Why so slow? For each walk I’ve completed, my first task is to sort out the photographs – and I take a great many photographs. Then I have the pleasure of thinking back on the walk – the route, the highlights, the low moments, the things I saw, my thoughts along the way, etc.
I always find plenty to write about. My latest blog post in Ruth’s Coastal Walk features an adder.
I spent the recent bank holiday weekend walking the coast in Cornwall. The weather was surprisingly good and I walked all day, every day. As a result I did very little writing. I did make some notes on paper (gasp, so old-fashioned) about my walks, but I’m not counting those.
How am I getting on with the 15K challenge?
- Crime fiction (Birkbeck assignment) = 999 words, after editing.

One week in and I am almost bang on schedule. Not bad.
