I went for another long walk this morning. I had used the Google Map distance calculator to try and aim for an 8 km walk, but it turned out to be only 7.47 km. :( That's barely more than my previous walk along the park. It's just not worth it... It's dangerous, having to cross so many roads, and the traffic noise is deafening. Why am I aiming at an 8 km walk, you might ask? A few days ago, hubby and I watched a bio movie about the late, great B.B King. When he was a young child (12 yro) he had to walk 5 miles to school every day! That's 8 km to school and 8 km back... EVERY DAY! For a 12 yro, this must've been incredibly demanding, and on top of that, he had to get up early to work the cotton fields. I just have a really hard time wrapping my brain around this! Kids nowadays have it quite easy... They'd struggle like mad if they were all of a sudden forced to walk this far to go to school.
