Up at the usual time and took the dogs out, one after the other, for a short, local walk.

Unfortunately, I forgot to restart my watch after swapping dogs until I was half way around part two so have only recorded 1.53 instead of 2.00 miles 🙁

Once this ‘training’ had been completed and a little breakfast, my other half and I set off for Birmingham, specifically Moor Street Station, for a little treat.

I had booked us a steam hauled train trip to Stratford-upon-Avon in super posh Pullman class.

Full (veggie) breakfast on the way out, a relaxing day strolling around Stratford (even grabbing a few geocaches) then afternoon tea on the way back.

What has this to do with walking ?

Nothing apart from an excuse to post a train photo!

Oh, yes, and it was Stratford Marathon day but, obviously, I wasn’t taking part (this time!)
