Canal by Moonlight

Similarly to last week or so ago, I was able to leave for work a little early and grab a walk en route.

I parked up in Hockley Heath for a walk along the Stratford Canal towards Kingswood. The sky was clear with a nearly full moon. Even though the moon was still waxing, it was putting out enough light that I was able to switch off my head light and still see where I was going.

NOT the moon

I felt strong and managed an average speed of 4.5 mph over the 5 mile course. A good start to the week.

I’m on nights for 3 nights then off over Christmas returning to nights next Monday so should be able to get a decent walk in, probably on Sunday.
