Janathon Day 2 - Hoorah no rain .... and no running

Woke this morning with a sore knee - bugger!   

On the upside there was no rain so I decided to capitalise on the weather and take Archie out for a lovely long walk to the beach and play ball on the helipad!   2 hours and 7km later I've developed a limp! I decided to see how things went once I got home and "rested" for a bit.  After a couple of hours of jobs around the house and a quick lunch it was time for Archie's second walk of the day.  

As the sun was still shining I decided to do another long walk, this time over the hills - that'll test the knee!     It was lovely on top of the hills apart from the gale force winds across the top.  Luckily I was on my own because conversation would have been useless!  We walked 8k in 2 hours.  I think the difference in time and distance between this morning and this afternoon has to do with ball playing and stopping to chat with other dog walkers and a friend I hadn't seen for a while this morning.

So today Archie and I have walked a total of 15km and been out for nearly 4 hours.   Oh and the knee - sore but no worse than it was when I woke up so hopefully with reduced dog walking tomorrow (I'm back to work) I will be able to go for a run.
