October Goal.

I'm thinking that because I'm not doing enough I need to set some walking goals and get it down in writing so it sticks in me head.   There is no way that I will be able to walk up Bluff Knoll next year if I don't start getting real about it all pretty darn soon. So:
Before the end of this month I WILL walk up to the weir. 

Probably not from here though...I will ride into T's place and use that as my starting point.  For the first one anyway.  Eventually I will walk all the way from here. 

I think this walk is a bit further than 5km, all up hill.  I did drive it last week to see how far it was but then drove somewhere else and forgot to write it down.

I know it can be done...I have seen people doing it.  The only difference between me and them, that I can see, is they are younger, fitter, thinner and actually doing it.
I bet before they started that they thought they couldn't.  I bet their first time was hard on their legs. I bet they enjoy it now...

I have even seen kids riding up this hill.  OK, we all know that kids can do just about anything, 45 years ago I probably could have ridden up this hill, no hands and with a blindfold on...OK, maybe not the blindfold...My point?  Other people are doing it and there is no reason that I can't do it too. 


  1. Woohoo! A weir walk by the end of this month! I will hold you accountable. Get walking!
    You could come stay with me for a week and we wll do bushwalks and rides every single day and eat salads and green smoothies and superfoods and MOW THE LAWN!

  2., no I haven't. Next Friday...maybe. Or Sun 21st?
