Thanks to Zoee!! and the love nature video she put on her blog. After watching the short video I felt inspired to do something outdoors and take in a little of the local nature, looked outside to see what was turning out to be a very nice day. Right time for action, get kitted up ready to face the elements,full oxygen cylinder on my back,mobile phone charged,cash in pocket and away to go. I left the house fully expecting to run out of steam about 100 yards down the road as I have only been out of hospital for 5 days after a lung infection, but to my amaizement my sats remained around 90 (good for me) and I was able to keep going. The air was fresh the sun was bright and the sky was a brilliant blue so I pushed on across the local golf course where because of the weather it was extremely busy. They hated me slowly huffing and puffing my way across thier line of fire on the footpaths where they have to give to walkers. I could here thier posh mutterings which only made me go a little slower taking in the bird songs all around and the beautiful scenery that the Malvern Hills have to offer. On I went untill I realised that I was in reach of my old workplace before my illness struck so even though it was at the top of a very steep hill I became determined to pay them a visit. Well after 1 and a quarter hours of walking I made it on sats varying between 80/90 and 6 litres of oxygen where they were all pleased to see me. I felt on top of the world boosted by my achievement. I cheated on the return journey, phoned my mum and she came and collected me in the car. Ive cleared my lungs of a gallon of sputum and its time to put the feet up in front of the telly. Great Day!!
