Hiking: take to the hills

We enjoy walking as a family a lot, so using this as my primary ‘Action’ challenge would be a bit of a cop-out. Nevertheless, Lee and I enjoy longer hikes whenever we can – we are training Thomas up for longer distances, but anything climbable offers a lot of distraction for him! For this reason, I plan to complete the hiking challenge in addition to running. Over the last four years or so, Lee has walked most of the Kentish coastline in sections. Thomas and I have joined him on a few of these jaunts, but Lee definitely has ownership of this challenge. Having enjoyed this sort of objective before, he suggested the goal of walking from home towards the Dojo at Lordswood, using train stations as stage boundaries, or ‘stepping stones’.

A bright but cold March day saw us undertake our first leg: Home –> Meopham, but in the reverse direction 😉 (train out, walk home). It was refreshing to walk paths unknown to us, and a delight to approach our home turf and recognise the hills, woods and country lanes.


Eagle-eyed amongst you will have noticed that this walk took place before the eight-week schedule began: we had arranged a couple of days out after the BB Assessment date had been set, but before the BB Workbook deadline had been set…
