Today has been a beautiful day. Worked last night until late, so was feeling a bit blah and ‘can’t be bothered’ when I woke. All week, my plan was to go bush for a long walk but not feeling very energetic, and as it was a dreadful day with really strong winds, I. decided to […]
TO WALK OR TO RUN? Is it better to walk or to run? This has been an ongoing discussion over the years and I decided it’s time for me to look into it, as lately my dodgy knee has been starting to protest when running. I’ve spent the last few days googling and reading opinions […]
