That’s me just set a new personal record on the Garmin Connect website. I’ve now set a new most steps in a day, which now stands 36,769.

So well and truly beat the record I set last Sunday of 29,403 steps.

Then I guess that is what happens, when you do a 16.2 mile walk on Cooper Day! Don’t believe me? Then check out the walk at www.strava.com/activities/1132163576.

This time 8 years ago, I would have been cycling between Glencoe and Killearn has part of the End to End cycle! A distance of 63.84 miles, but I will let you into a secret, we only cycled has far, as the Loch Lomond Youth Hostel (now closed). Then my Dad, give leave a lift with our bikes to Killearn. The part had been, the next day to get a left back to that location. But for reasons, I am sure most of you know. That never happened!

I would still rate this day, has one of favourites. Watch this video, I filmed some years later and I am sure, you will see why!!

Please do check out the route, we took at www.strava.com/activities/445506861.
