Weight and Stuff Report – 19 September 2011

Today’s weight figure is probably a temporary anomalous wossname, what with it being an “after a walk” measurement, but it is a nice one to see. It takes me just below the dreaded 100kg mark for the first time since, err, let’s see… Ah. It’s hard to be certain because I lapsed into not bothering to take daily measurements at the time, but it would appear that I’m now at my lowest weight for two years. I still need to keep working on that, though…

Anyway, as I’m off work this week, I decided to get out and have that walk that the rain interrupted yesterday. I didn’t use the heart rate thingy, as I thought the strap might get a bit uncomfortable if I wore it for a longer period, but I did let Runkeeper record my progress, which it did pretty well. I think it got mildly confused when the GPS signal was blocked by trees at some points, so the distance may not be completely accurate, but I’ll assume it’s near enough:

You can see it in a more interactive form on the Runkeeper page, but to summarise, here’s where I went:

Into Gateshead, stopping off to see the former location of Tyne Bridge Tower, which is looking a lot better now:

Then I crossed the Millennium Bridge, walked along to the mouth of the Ouseburn, then walked along the riverside path, passing under Byker Bridge. From there, I took a slightly indirect route that eventually brought me to Armstrong Park, Heaton Park, and finally Jesmond Dene. I had a good wander in Jesmond Dene, then decided that my feet had probably had enough punishment, and headed back along Jesmond Dene Road, took a quick detour to look at Armstrong Bridge, then walked back to Newcastle, where I really decided my feet had reached their limit and got the bus home. Runkeeper made that just over eight and a half miles, which is longer than I’ve walked in one go since I can’t remember…

I may have a more relaxing day tomorrow…
