This last week I've been much more sensible and have gone for two walks instead of one long walk, each walk has been around 12 -15 kilometers and I feel fine. Both involved walking in different directions along the Swan River and included Kings Park, which I'm still discovering.
Tuesday I walked around the perimeter of Kings Park across to the Swan River and ended in a south westerly direction from Matilda Bay towards Nedlands and then headed inland through suburbia, it wasn't very interesting and as I left early in the morning it was quiet cool. On Thursday I walked through Kings Park and around to Matilda Bay but then headed north west towards Riverside Drive, over near the WACA Oval and through the city. This was a much nicer walk as I didn't leave until after 10am and I was entertained along the way by my music and having a chat to one of our beautiful daughters.
Unfortunately my walking is now impacting on my swimming, I belong to a masters swimming group called Snappers who meet twice a week but with all my other activities I think I'll have to reduce the swimming to once a week at least until the I've completed the walk in August (what a life!).
Last night Tim & I had our first taste of some night life over here that's comparable to Sydney. We went down to Fremantle where we discovered a vibrant area, alive with an assortment of restaurants and drinking establishments. We ended up going see a movie called Mad Bastards which is at a cinema chain called Luna Palace - I'm sure it's linked to Palace cinema's in Sydney as Luna have all the art house movies and film festivals.
