It’s time to reset the count and start logging the miles again during 2020!
2019 fizzled out for me as far as the #walk1000miles challenge was concerned. I lost interest quite early on in the year, stopped tracking mileage and, I guess, ‘just enjoyed the walk’. This had the effect of me not having the motivation to do much walking at all; or at least it seemed that way. Maybe one day I’ll look back on 2019 and try and work out how many miles I did walk: I could be pleasantly surprised!
You can check out all the walks I’ve completed during 2020 … HERE.
As at the start of 2019, I’ve still got a couple of walks to complete that I started in 2018; Wainwright’s Coast to Coast and The Viking Way. From 2019 there are the Leicester Line, Aylesbury Arm and Wendover Arm of the Grand Union Canal to walk to complete the system of the Grand Union and, separately, the remainder of the Kennet and Avon Canal to complete.
For 2020 the following walks appeal, alongside many shorter local walks, but there will be not enough time to walk all of them …
Berwickshire Coastal Path – 30 miles
Coast to Coast – Southern England – 276 miles
Coastliner Way – 95 miles
Cross Norfolk Trail – 96 miles
England Coast Path – 2795 miles!
Hobblers Way – 193 miles
Macmillan Way – Boston to Abbotsbury – 290 miles or the Macmillan Way – Cross Britain Way – 279 miles
Melton Round – 56 miles
Trent and Mersey Canal Walk – 95 miles
Why not sign up for the challenge too? There’s no competition, you count the miles you want in whatever way you chose, there’s no pressure, a very supportive friendly group on Facebook and it’s great exercise for the body and the mind.
