Greetings Hikers. I’m pleased to say that my mood has improved a bit. Yesterday, I managed to get in 8.5 km. The chance to get out and make the effort made all the difference to my mental state. The weather was pleasant and I came across a lot of other walkers. Interestingly, I saw severalContinue reading “Dear Diary – 5/3/22”
I was able to pick up the daily walking a bit. Yesterday I managed 5.4 km. COVID continues to threaten everyone and depression is increasing.
I find myself becoming more and more depressed. Yesterday I went out to pay a few bills with the determination of doing an absolute minimum of 5 km, however, I didn’t even manage to make my minimum target. I only managed 4.9.

Records from the last seven days,Continue reading “Dear Diary”
Due to heavy rain and dropping temperatures my hiking has been curtailed. I’m barely able to make my 5 km daily target. I hope to be able to post more in the coming weeks. Until then, stay safe and keep up the kilometres! Best wishes from Stewart Goes Walkies.
