The World Figure Skating Championships start today, after a hiatus last year because Covid, and are being televised on Eurosport this morning, starting at 09:00. And I know me, once I settled down in front of them, I'll not be moving again. But we didn't have enough bread for lunch and I didn't go out yesterday because I had - still have, but it's improving - a swollen and painful gland under my left ear. So I got up early and went out to Sainsbury's before breakfast. I don't know why Google fit thinks I wiggled up and down Tremadoc Road - I totally didn't! I did, however, stop to take a photo of where Mr Fox had had his breakfast:
So anyway, rather a dull walk, but fairly brisk, to Sainsbury's, round Sainsbury's to get what I wanted, and home again. I bought croissants, thinking that if the Swan Whisperer had had his breakfast, he could have his with his coffee. "No," he said, "I waited, because I wondered if you'd buy something like that!" Hopeful, much?

When I got to Clapham Common station, I caught a 37 home, and then went into Lidl, forgetting to restart my trackers until I was half-way round, but never mind that! Then home. So far today that is 3,980 steps according to my phone, 3,976 according to my wristband and 4,254 according to Google Fit! So roughly 4K, which is about what I wanted, but only 18 minutes of brisk walking, not the 20 I aim for. But I didn't have any music - I did take my headband with me, but it didn't seem appropriate at first and then I just didn't want it, much too nice a day. But I do walk faster if I have Abba or something like that blaring in my ears!

It took us longer than it should have to drive home; the longest I have been out of the flat for months and months!

My fitness journey has gone on a hiatus for the last few days; the abduction and murder of Sarah Everard just round the corner threw us both completely, and then I had a minor virus (and subsequent post-viral depression) which destroyed my energy levels completely.
I did go out to Lidl yesterday and my watch registered >1000 steps for the day, only a third of my current target. Today I have not gone out at all, but plan to do a few minutes on the stationery bike before going to cook supper. And tomorrow we are (possibly illegally?) meeting the daughter and going for a short walk with her, and I hope, very much, that normal service will be resumed on Thursday!
