Eowyn Challenge -- Isengard to Minas Tirith with Merry and the Rohirrim

Miles travelled yesterday: 4.75
Miles travelled so far: 76.75 (1740.75 from Bag End)
Miles still to go: 501.25

Percentage complete: 13%

Point reached on journey: Still riding away from Helm's Deep with the Rohirrim. Heading east we have crossed a stream and now we're camping in a shallow valley.

Where I really went...

A rather dreary day

Just one of the local circuits round the lanes near my house. The weather was very grey and dreary, but at least it remained dry -- unlike today! Today it tipped down and the forecast for tomorrow is no better.

At least I have the mini-bike, the hula hoop and the stepper. I've been using these for three months now and they have definitely helped. I wouldn't say that I can do enough exercise in the house to get properly fit or lose weight, but it's enough for health and it helps maintain the fitness when I can't exercise properly.

Anyway, building on the kick start I got from the two days of walking around London before Christmas, I want to make some real progress on the road to Mordor. It's going to be a case of watching the weather, getting out for proper walks and cycle rides when possible and then using the indoor exercise to stop me getting too unfit when the weather is bad, but with a bit of luck I'll lose some weight as well.

    G wanted to have lunch out at the cafe in Fairbourne. We'd planned to do this a few weeks ago, but the surveying didn't take as long as we thought it…
