The Long Road Back

No not my favourite Peter Andre album, but my attempt at a heroic title for my mundane efforts to get back to fitness. For the whole of January I ran just 15 miles, which is by far the least I have run since around 2012. 794 more words


A Good Day For A Walk

It is surprising that one of the most picturesque routes in the South-East of England is not walked more often.

Perhaps it is the challenge of all the ups and downs of Hastings Country Park, following the Saxon Shore Way to Cliff End and beyond into Pett Level, or it may be that many of the walks end in Hastings rather than start there and reading walk instructions back to front is not easy. 402 more words
