Fridays are usually my rest day but this morning I wanted to spend time with my partner so I joined her on her daily walk. She’s recently increased her distance from 5km to 6km, which is a fantastic achievement.
Given that I’ve committed to walking the Great North Walk in July, I have decided to start carrying a pack when I walk with my partner. This morning I carried my tent and sleeping bag; my pack weighed 4.9kg. As the weeks go by, I’m going to add actual gear to the pack so that I get close to my hike pack weight for the final month.
I love walking with my partner. It gives us a chance to talk and catch up. See, she is a shift worker and I have load of extra curricular commitments, so we often go weeks without spending more than a few short hours together.
Total: 6km walk with 4.9kg pack
