Walking, lots of walking

This past weekend, the sun finally shone and was warm enough for me to take off my hoodie and agree to go for a long walk on Sunday with my husband and son.  It was lovely.

We took a picnic and walked from home down to the river.  We then walked along the river path to Bishopthorpe and then on towards Acaster Malbis.  We stopped short of Acaster Malbis and crossed over the bridge to have our lunch.

After lunch we walked from Naburn to Fulford where we stopped off at the Designer Outlet so I could go to the loo, before carrying on to Milennium Bridge to get an ice cream from the Two Hoots ice cream boat.  The queue was really long, we waited 30 minutes, but it was worth the wait for a blueberry ice cream – yum! (the photos of ice cream and the ice cream boat are from Friday when it wasn’t as busy)

I actually remembered to start, and stop, my Garmin for our walk and, in total, we walked 18km in 3 hours 32 minutes!  No wonder my feet were sore!

In other news, Adam and I ran/walked at parkrun for the 3rd week in a row 🙂  This week I beat him, mainly because he decided he’d had enough after 3.5km and decided to walk while I kept running.  I finished in 34:10 which is the fastest time since coming back so I’m happy with that.  We also increased the running interval to 2 minutes 30 seconds.  We won’t be at parkrun next week due to another commitment and the horses are using the racecourse the week after but we’ll be back at York parkrun for their 200th event on 28th May 😀


Share Your World – 2014 Week 11

Thank you Cee for some more wonderful, fun questions.

share-your-world2  2014: Week 11

If you were an ice cream cone how many scoops and flavors would you be and why?

I’m not sure how to answer this one but I’ll give it a go.  I think I’d have to include a nutty flavour to go with my mad and bonkers side, vanilla because I can be straight-laced and serious when I have to be, chocolate because I’m sweet and lemon sorbet because you need a little bit of something tart/sour.

When I go to the cinema, I usually choose a mixture of berry flavours, usually 2 scoops in a pot rather than a cone.

Are you left or right handed?

Right handed

Before making a phone call, do you ever rehearse what you are going to say?

No, but I really should think about what I’m going to say when I make a business call and end up with their voicemail!  I hate voicemail and always ramble and um and ah my way through my message.

How many rings before you answer the phone?

As few as possible.  I hate it when a phone is left to ring.
