Sorry for the lack of recent content, but the weather has been rancid and I've not been getting out walking as I'd like.
I'm also suffering from a bit of a lack of motivation. Crazy though it sounds, when my old Fitbit tracker bit the dust a few weeks ago, I found it harder to get out there and get racking the step count up.
So today, I went out and bought a new Huawei Band 4 tracker, with HR and GPS capability (through my phone). I'm hoping it will motivate me to work out more again and shed some of the chub I've put on since returning to work, as well as improving my mental health which has also been a bit up and down lately.
I've been out running with it - I got drenched - and I also used it during my virtual spin class earlier. To say it was only £29.99 it has far more features than the more expensive Fitbit as well as a pretty colour display. It also charges directly via USB rather than any weird magnetic cradle.
I'll let you know more as I keep using it.
In the nature world, we are well and truly in autumn now, hence the birds at work are flocking up. There are flocks of goldfinch working through the teazel, feeding off the seeds while making spacey sounding calls.
Rabbits are being hit by cars, providing food for the local buzzard family, while the kestrel has resumed hunting, its slim form mastering the breezes and hovering above the long grass.
I remember coming across partridge at work, but not for a long time now. I wonder where they went.
