Mustn't Overdo It

Having caught myself doing odd things, I have decided that not going out is driving me mad, so I have made the decision to get out and go for a walk (HOBBLE!) every day until I am back to full fitness. There is the added advantage of actually loosing that bit of weight I seemed to have gained over the Festive period and because of enforced  inactivity.  Even my physio said it was a good idea, so what the hell!  Yesterday was a beautiful day here in Somerset, in fact it was unseasonably warm and the sun felt strong on my face and I could feel its warmth on my back as I struggled along minor roads and footpaths.  It was positively Spring like.  Goodness knows whats going on with the seasons/weather.  Even Scotland, which is usually in the grips of Winter, is unseasonably warm and my fellow outdoor instructors are struggling to find snow for their winter mountaineering courses.  Well, that was yesterday.  Today, it's been a bit cooler and the forecast is for some colder weather at the weekend.  The wind seems to be coming from a more northerly direction.  Again I ventured out onto the highways and byways.  I decided to go and explore the Iron Age fort of Castle Neroche, which is situated high on the Blackdown Hills, and it was easy to see why the original builders selected this place for their place of living, steep earth banks, with a commanding position on the ridge, the views over the vale, over Taunton to the Quantocks in the North.  It would be easy to defend and difficult to attack and it must have been quite a sight in its time.  Now its significance seems to be lost to our generation, as evidence of mountain bikes using the earth banks as ramps, jumps and other challenges can be seen as deep ruts across the banks.  Pity.
I didn't feel sore after I got back to the house, which is encouraging.  I am planning an all day walk at the weekend, but I must be careful not to overdo it.  I don't want to undo all this good healing and spend any more time sat on my bum and not climbing and surfing this year.

Well they say that excess of anything is bad and thus it is also applied to our any passion. Rock climbing can be a good outdoor activity to keep us fit and healthy. Your passion is great as it defines that a person is tough and likes toughness.
