This year, I have started a new regimen – to walk 1000 miles in one year – that is about 2.7 miles a day.
Today’s walk was at Leradale, walking Loki and BeAnne, as well as incorporating the usual headcollar dance with Dreki……
….. and Lilja (yes, still no joy but I determinedly keep at it).
Before I started my proper walk, I also had to feed Delia as well as being entertained by the starving!
Once fed, I put the headcollar on Vitamin and led her, with Delia’s now-empty bucket around the boggy part of the field on my dog walk.
Once I did my special “Minion” call, the others followed.
Up and up we all climbed.
Even Delia, who got a bit left behind but still determinedly came along.
(I wish I was counting it was altitude + miles = effort + calories!)
There was method in my madness. Yesterday, I had put a new lick bucket at the top of the hill where there is more grass around.
Storm was the first to notice.
One bee-line was made.
Soon everyone realised why I had brought them to the top of the world.
Once I knew they were all happy, I got on with my 1000 mile walkies.
I had BeAnne and Loki as my companions.
It was very pretty. The ice on the loch had created interesting patterns.
So we did that walk and then I did a bit more at home just to keep the miles topped up – a few in the bank really.
Who knows, this might also be good for me!
