Still a very long way to go.

I’ve been a bit sporadic with my walking but still getting a decent distance when I do go. Clearly the main issue is just finding the time to get out the door. I need to prioritise exercise more as I’ve completely stopped losing weight. Also, I need to stop expecting perfect weather and just go out when it is time to go out, rather than hopefully waiting for the sun to come out (which can take weeks!).

The past 25 miles have been particularly exciting as Bilbo and the dwarves have been deep down in the goblin tunnels of the Misty Mountains.

Take a look at the final 11 miles:
