Thames Path Challenge at Night!

Saturday May 6th

Emma, Alice and I gather at my place at 19:25. We pick up Linden and Bernie from the Lock keepers retirement party and set off to Kennington to catch the bus into Abingdon. The idea is we will walk from Abingdon back to Sandford. Which is about 5 miles and we started in the light which mean it was easy to find the start of the path. I was in the lead and did not have a headlamp so when the light started to fade I was dependent on my night vision which was ok. I struggled with determining the undulation of the path but because it only really got very dark about a mile from home the impact was minor knee pain. I did use my light in my phone in the end


It took us a couple of hours from start to finish. Alice and Emma had head lamps which helped light up some of the path. It was a lovely evening and as we progressed I stripped off one layer after the other! Walking with friends is lovely as we chatted along the way which meant time simply slipped by and before you know it the lock came back into view and we were home. The drink at the pub did fall by the wayside as we all headed home.

I aspire to: Joe Wicks HIITs

For a low calorie, high flavour dinner try combining all those lovely veggies like courgette, aubergine, spinach, cauliflower and peppers with some lightly fried onions, a tin of tomatoes and curry powder. YUM!
