You're Lazy and Fat ...

said the doctor. Well almost. What he actually said was, "You really ought to try and lose some weight" and "Try to get some more exercise".

Beat the Credit Crunch and Get Fit

These walks are part of my attempt to get fit and beat the credit crunch by leaving the car at home.

The Walks

Most of the walks are circular.
The routes avoid roads, where possible, and especially busy roads.
You can download the kml files and see the tracks in Google Earth.
There is even a tool to "fly" along the tracks.
With GPS Babel, you can convert the kml files for use with your sat-nav device if you have one.
Paper maps are good too.

Disclaimer:
These routes are mostly on paths with a right of way.
The information is not guaranteed to be correct.
The paths might not be safe.
Some of the paths follow stream beds which are usually dry but could flood in a wet year.

Please use your own judgement and common sense.

Here are the walks, shortest first.

The Technology

You're Still Lazy and Fat and you Drink Too Much Too!

If you do these walks at a "power walking" pace and drink mineral water at the pubs, you will get fit and thin. If, like me, you stroll to the pub and amble home after a beer or two and perhaps an all-day-breakfast, you will be doomed to get the advice above.

However I'm still fitter and thinner than I would have been without this enjoyable programme.
