I just do what I am comfortable with and don't push the envelope. After all most people don't do even my limited walking, according to the research not even 20 minutes a week! I do an hour a day split into 3 walks...... 30 minutes maximum in morning and 2X15 minutes later plus shopping....

Been up Dark Hill again this morning with the Silsden grandchildren who have been with us on a sleep over. Ground is still frozen and there is still enough snow at that level for sledging which was the aim of the game. I came back via Cow Pasture and the stables to extend my walk a bit. The kids elected for the shorter route down Calf Hall, I got home before them. More or less the same walk as I did the other day so I'll not bother with the Endomondo track. :smile:

Out via the stables and down over the stream. Through the orchard and up over the hill behind New House to above Raygill. Up the bridleway to Hollins then down the side path and through the stock holding area to Cow Pasture. Home via Calf Hall Lane and the Parrock. Weather dull and calm, plenty warm enough when walking. :smile:

I don't know why the Endomondo track got a maximum pace blip at 14.18 mph just past the mile marker, I was picking my way through clag at that point and definitely not running, couldn't do that if I tried at the moment, GPS or GLONASS brain fart. :extrawink:

Yesterdays walk took us out via Moorgate, Follly Lane and then into the fields over to Lower Standridge. Down to the bridge over Gillians Beck and over to Lane Bottoms. We crossed straight over and went up the hillside to the bottom of Lister Well, then down Tubber to Hodge Lane, King Hill and returned home via Kelbrook Road and the town centre.

Notice also that the GPS tracking on my phone chucked another blip in the track just before the mile marker this time, I managed to get up to 24.6 mph! American GPS degredation or Russian GLONASS plot to confuse?

You're showing steady progress Ian! Well done, proof of effort, you deserve all the improvement you get.

A bit of a reverse loop today. Out via the Parrock and Town Head, Esp Lane up to Hollins Lane, one end to the other then out into the field in front of Hollins Farm. Over to the Bridle Path and down towards Raygill. Right at the bottom and over the stile and up the hill to the boggy field. A bit of a diagonal her to pick up the stile in the stepped bottom corner of the field. Down under the trees to the orchard, over the beck and pick up the path to the stables. Back home via Priory Way and Valley Gardens. A nice warm afternoon, only needed a base layer T shirt and my light windproof jacket for it's pockets. I gave my new 0.7L foldable water bottle its first outing, it's fairly flat and fits in one of the inside pockets of my windproof, it has an integral carabina for clipping to a belt loop if required. It's just the job for a shorter walk. I take my hard bottles when I have my rucksack for waterproofs or butties. My near 19mph sprint GPS blip came near the end on this one. Nice loop, ready for a sit down before a quick shower.

Thanks Stanley.

I want to extend my routes slightly before an assault on Weets, so I think I will have to have a foray out around Stock next time I am out. Or I could do over the moor from Lane Bottom and a return via Higher View. That will take it up to about 4.5 miles. I do favour routes with climbs in the way. Once I get back on Weets proper via the trig there are loads of variable routes both on and off the hill.
