Walk to work

[Railway bridge lit by headlights]

After the success of the bus I thought I'd try walking to work last week. It's a little under four miles so takes about an hour. I've walked the route before, but never day in day out.

I lasted 'till Wednesday.

Yes, it was free. Yes, it was relaxing to a degree. But it's just not going to work as a long term means of getting to the office. Even at this time of year part of the walk is in the dark which meant diving for the hedgerow as cars bombed down the narrow lanes. (I discovered the importance of a torch on Tuesday.)

Ultimately though I couldn't get over the feeling that walking was a drag. Given the amount of walking I do at the weekends this surprised me. Work and play don't always mix.
