walk1000miles - 2020That’s me now done 33% of #walk1000miles. So 330.50 miles down and 669.50 miles left to go!

Over at least the next 3 weeks, it’s going to be a lot harder to get them miles in! But if that helps save peoples lives, I don’t mind at all!

It’s only 2 day of the ‘lockdown’ here in the UK and I am already getting to lose the will to live! For someone like, me who’s just about always outdoors, cycling, walking etc. Being told I can only do one form of outdoor exercise a day, is killing me! With having dog, that means cycling is out of the question. So already getting so worried that my depression will come back. I find the only way, I can keep that under control is exercise and a lot of it! So if this, Coronavirus does not kill me off, the depression could!

Anyway… Sorry it’s not the normal happy Gordon you are all use to! Just needed to tell people! x
