A showery and windy day today

β€’27 Replies

Hi all

There have certainly been some fierce showers today, fortunately for me they were mainly this afternoon as I met my sister in law for a coffee this morning. I walked into our city centre, might take longer than cycling but much safer in the strong winds.

I only got caught in one very brief shower this morning but a couple of heavy ones on my way back this afternoon which I didn't mind as at least I was on my way back home. Exercising for pleasure really does help with mental health and I count myself as so fortunate to be able to exercise.

I walked 28,253 steps today which equates to 12.21 miles. I took the photo just outside of the village, it's where I walk regularly through woods.

Have a good evening all and stay safe and well.

Wow what alot of steps Alicia, well done and what a lovely photo! :)

The rain came here over an hour ago, i think it's here for the night now.

Enjoy your evening! :)

Thank you.

There's certainly a lot around, I love in the South West of the UK and we've had a fair bit of rain.

Thank you, you have a nice relaxing evening.

Terrible day here yesterday afternoon in south east with thunder and driving rain and hail!! Water just poured from the gutters. Luckily dry during the morning. Bad crash a.m on main road and air ambulance had just landed when OH went to town. Scary as I use that road most days.

I'm so sorry the weather was so bad in the South East yesterday, I hope it's not been as bad today. It really is very scary when a road you use frequently experiences a very bad crash.

Stay safe and well.

Alicia :)

Hi Alicia,

Glad to hear you enjoyed meeting up with your sister in law for a coffee, and well done on your mileage and steps. Really good! Lovely photo too - a great view.

Have a lovely evening.

Hi Zest

It was really good meeting her, I'm so glad I walked, I feel so good for it.

Aw thank you Lynne, it felt really good.

Thank you Jerry, thought I'd take the photo on the way home to show the countryside where I live.

I do think if it wasn't for keeping fit my mental health wouldn't be as good. I think it's good to open up and say how you feel and I can honestly say that with the exercise I feel really good. Exercise is certainly powerful.

Now relaxing watching TV and eating dark chocolate which I love.

Hope you're having a good evening.

It might be a showery day but this photo is very beautiful and even romantic in a misty sort of way.

Thank you, I do think the weather plays a big part in how photos look.πŸ‘πŸŒˆπŸ™

Lovely photo, it rained here all day, it looks like it might be the same again today. 😊🌸

in reply to bobbybobb

Thank you Bobby. We do seem to be experiencing a lot of wet weather is the UK at present, I hope we don't have weather like we had last year where it rained all Autumn and Winter. Fortunately we had showers yesterday so I didn't mind too much as walking in showers is so much better than continual rain.

Hope you've had a good day.

Alicia :)

Good for you. You can't let the weather stop you in this country. Get wet and carry on.😊

My theory has always been that, if you keep moving you can keep warm.

in reply to S11m

Totally agree and I'm fortunate to be able to keep moving, I really feel for those that aren't able to exercise like I can.


in reply to Sheila_G

Thank you Sheila. The only time I won't go out and exercise is when it's raining really hard. At least I only got wet when caught in a shower. :)

Well done Alicia! πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘

Hello crazyfitness

I agree with that exercise helps a lot. I always say, "It is hard to have a headache when you are walking". Blessings.

in reply to Big_Dee

Thank you Big_Dee, you are so right as exercise does help a lot and you do tend to forget the worries of the world and sometimes pain. It's so good for the mental health. :)

Even in the rain the pics are beautiful...

Glad you didn’t get blown or washed away!

Your an inspiration as most of us would probably have stayed home!πŸ€—β€οΈπŸŒ‚πŸŒ§β˜”οΈ

in reply to Williemom

Thank you, you cannot beat the countryside.

It was rather windy but when walking that really isn't a problem, now if I'd been on my bike it would have been scary in the traffic being blown around.

Thank you, I hate just staying at home unless I have loads to do like I did at the weekend and batch cooked. :)
