The last week I have been doing a lot of walking. Last week saw me wake up with pain in the pelvic area and I decided to taper back on the cycling. So I did a couple of easy rides on the road and waited for the muscles around the spine to recover. Last monday saw me do the last of those rides and with the weather deteriorating - with rain and/or showers almost every day - I decided to switch to walking . With an easy start of around 6.5K last tuesday, and leaving a days' rest between the successive walks on thursday - 13.7K - and saturday - 12.7K - I was able to focus on something else and keep feet at the same time. Today saw me do a shorter distance - only 4.5K - to wrap up the week. Obviously the fitness is there. The long walks in my native Meerdael Forest also gave me a chance to see this exciting place from another perspective, as a walker instead of a mountainbiker. This morning I was able to capture the awakening forest in a couple of pictures, with the sun steaming the trees.
