Do some searches for rambling in your area. When I naffed my knee up at work I did a lot of walking to strengthen it back up. I found a lot of trails by looking for walks on the internet. Most of them have some sort of theme, like historical or bird watching but are, mostly, good for running.

The most un-runable one I found was at Box Hill in Surrey, could almost pass as mountaineering. Best one was the Cookoo trail in Kent, it’s an old disused railway that they’ve turned into a walk, all very level and straight.

Yeah, it's that way. Near Dorking. Here:

http://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/scripts/nthandbook.dll?ACTION=PROPERTY&PROPERTYID=236

The huge hill you drive up to get to the car park should've given us a clue but we were still stupid enough to go on the full walk (8 miles I think). You leave the car and walk about 2 miles down a really nice woodland path, birds are singing and the sun shining. But, you've just walked two miles down hill and you're met with about a 100 metre climb up really steep/high steps. Them annoying steps that are too big to do one per stride. Then, at the top, it started raining. It rained for the rest of the walk, proper rain. Stair rod rain. Within three milliseconds we were soaked. Took about three hours to walk, up and down up and down!

Saw a couple of deers in the woods, that was nice.

It's not so much that it was difficult, it's that it was supposed to be a nice walk in the woods. Michele (the Mrs) looked like she was going to pass out at the top of them steps which worried me just a little!

I was carrying a couple of spare tyres is that the same as weighs?

Your comment stumped me Connor
I really like working with the LD clients, you learn such a lot about "life" and can bore people silly with my enthusiasm for this speciality --even though many folk think I "am" mad. Best physio field I've worked in, and that has been quite a few Very Happy --see I'm spouting already Confused
