Challenge Update - End of the year! Roll on 2014

All things considered, December has been a decent month with 7 walks.  Admittedly they have mostly been fairly uninspiring local walks but at least I'm out and about!  Fitting stuff in while working silly hours is still an issue, but the money is always good.

Unfortunately most of the local walks are pretty waterlogged so it can be hard to get motivated for something muddy and slippy that doesn't offer much in the way of views and adventure.  I still need more hills to climb, so January will involve a bit more travel!

December - 71.49 miles and 1724 metres ascent.

November - 44.07 miles and 1857 metres ascent.
October - 27.97 miles and 643 metres ascent.
September - 71.40 miles and 4129 metres ascent.
August - 62.63 miles and 913 metres ascent.
July - 16.24 miles and 258 metres ascent.
June -  82.05 miles and 1063 metres ascent.


  1. For reasons too boring to dwell on, our Nov and Dec were a bit like yours - either sticking to the lanes or splodging across the fields - and much of it local to us, as well, with very little new, challenging or exciting about any of them.

    Still, it all added to the mileage, and in the end we didn't do too badly on that front. In fact, a best ever total was achieved even though it could have been more.

    A better 2014 - opportunity, weather, etc - would be appreciated!

  2. Very much the same. Adding mileage but nothing special. In fact the mileages are creeping up to about 12-14 miles, so it's not all bad!

    Though I doubt we will be dry until easter!
