Onwards and Upwards

Unfortunately I can go days without looking at my phone. This one reappeared yesterday, when OneDrive reminded me that I took this three years ago.

Introducing Mrs Bump. You can see it was her purple hair that did the trick with me.

This was a 1-mile sponsored walk organised by the Stroke Association. Then, it took me about 45 minutes to walk a mile, now it takes about 25.

Then, I needed a three-hour sleep afterwards. Now, I walk that far to my local cafe to sup coffee with my buddy, then walk the same distance home again. I feel tired afterwards, and I probably need that slice of cake just to keep my legs going, but now I just get on with my day afterwards. I figure I will always feel tired because I always push myself to improve.

15 minutes is an average mile, isn’t it? So I have a way to go but in a few years I’ll outpace you all!

    1. I’m off social media now, except for WordPress.
      Mostly I used Facebook for Messenger, but most of the people I actually chatted to prefer WhatsApp now anyhow. So I canned Facebook and just use WhatsApp for 1-1s.

          1. But I’m in school now and it’s just too much. I keep everything closed and just go in when I get ready to. I don’t get alerts anymore either. I come here and post just to take a break from school. Blogging for me is therapeutic. It’s really my life story. Conversations that I have with others and things that I’ve experienced.
