Hi fitness family. Walked another 6 miles (2 laps) this morning, and the weather went from cold and grey to super bright sunshine…Oh and there was also a little rain thrown in the mix too! 😀
By the way…When i returned home to crop my photos (they really do need cropping as i’m taking them blind, lol), i was super surprised to find a Canada goose in the bottom left of my pond shot above…I love finding things in my photos, as i can’t see what i’m taking when i actually snap the shot!! 💪🏼😲
For some reason there weren’t as many people on the trail (works way better for me), as for the first 4 months it was really busy which meant so many more human, dog, bike and even ranger truck obstacles, lol! 🤣 But when the sun is shining and the trail is clear…It really is a beautiful place to walk! 😲
I was just chillin along the path listening to some ‘Tartan Noir’ on audible when…A loud HISS blasted out behind me from about 20 feet away! My stomach dropped at the same time as i realised it was definitely a snake! 😨 I knew they have adders on this trail but i’ve never heard one in all the years i’ve been walking here. Either way in my imagination it was a 30 foot anaconda which (with mouth wide open) was speeding after me! As soon as i heard the HISS my pace seemed to triple in speed and i could picture this things fangs digging into my calf muscles at any point…So i was racing off, as it can earn it’s kill as i ‘FitBlitzed’ away to try and tire it out, lol! 🤣 Oh and just think of the extra calories i’d burned off! 🤣
Wow, just when i thought i’d exhausted all the excitement i could get on the trail…I have something else to tell you about…Well i can now i’ve survived it, lol! 🤣 As you can imagine i was full of beans relaying the story to my lovely wife Sarah, and i’m still full of beans as i’m typing this to you too! 😀
This also got me thinking about all of you guys who live all around the world?! As i’m in England there are not too many man eating beasts in the woods…But what is the worst dangers you have when walking around your local area? 🤔
Let’s ‘FitBlitz’ 2022 together!! 💪🏼

Reblogged this on iChristian.
Snakes are some of the scariest creatures on earth! Even the harmless ones are very scary.
Glad to read that you are continuing your walking.
