As planned, I completed my 20 km Solo Walk yesterday here in North Hampshire. The weather was kind to me; it was warm, but not too hot, overcast but not raining. My boots were slightly less kind to me; I have a burst blister on my right heel (I botched the blister plaster application), but I’ve had worse. I also managed to avoid getting lost.
The scenery was astounding, as usual, and I very much enjoyed myself.
I didn’t make enormously good time, not least because I was wielding a camera to record the route. (Of course, blister plaster stops and, ahem, one ‘comfort break’ may also have affected my time.) Nonetheless, I covered the route (calculated on Google Maps at 20.5 kilometres or 12.7 miles) in 5.5 hours.
I managed to leave my SD card behind, which limited the route photography somewhat (fortunately, my camera has a moderate internal memory). However, I have covered a large part of the route before, so when I figure out how to present them coherently, I may well pad out the images with a few taken a week or so previously.
