I love walking. It is my favourite form of exercise. A good brisk walk “blows the cobwebs away”. Now that my left hip and knee tend to play up unless I am careful I find walking and my weekly pilates class my best forms of keeping myself fit and my joints supple.
Walking in the countryside helps to calm my mind and soothe my spirit. There is something about being close to nature that can assist us in dealing with the rush of daily life.
I am lucky that here in France we have some wonderful walks, through the vineyards and the woods. Not to mention a walk on the beach, at this time of year only ten minutes drive away.
What to wear. I like to be comfortable especially when it comes to shoes. I have been putting my new Vionic active trainers to the test and they are performing well. They are supportive and so comfortable.
With my good intention of keeping up my daily walking routine when I return to London this weekend it is time to replace some of my worn out sports attire. MarksandSpencer has come up with an excellent range this season. I am going to be more adventurous and buy some of their jazzy tops and leggings to go with my colourful trainers,
