I'm walking 10,000 steps every day this March for Cancer Research UK.

Thanks for visiting my fundraising page. This March, in memory of Merv, I’m walking 10,000 steps a day throughout the month to help beat cancer. Please help me Walk All Over Cancer and fund life-saving research by making a donation to my page.
Got off to a good start , March 1st, with 2 lovely local walks despite the murky weather - 12,202 steps today
Mar 2nd - 15,773 steps - lovely walk from Eaton to Keswick Church and back via Marston marshes and Eaton golf course
Mar 3rd -12,927 -ideal walking weather so far , cold and dry . Walked Gurney woods and UEA sports fields,
Mar 4th - 11,766 - very muddy on Shotesham footpaths after last night’s rain - should have worn my wellies!
Mar 5th - 13,342 Marston marshes & Eaton Golf course again
Mar 6th 12,480- got excited on my early morning walk by the Tas - saw 2 herons flying together- often see a single one but not two - one was smaller so maybe a parent and fledgling . Also walked round Whitlingham Lake - lots of walkers out !
Mar 7th -12,372 Lovely walk from Swardeston Cricket pavilion round fields towards Mulbarton- one of my favourites
Mar 8th 11,770 - Stayed local today Dunston field- lovely views over Tas valley
Mar 9th - 13,164 walked in fields near Wymondham Lizzard - have not been there for sometime so Penny had a good rampage appreciating all the new scents - I wonder what her step count is ?
10th-15,613 despite wind and rain, my second longest step count! Thanks to meeting up with Jane and doing nearly 10,000 steps on morning walk round fields and river near Roman Town - chatting away we did not really notice the wind and wet ! 2nd shorter walk on Eaton Golf course in the afternoon
11th -14,827 Battled against the elements for my morning walk -blowing a gale and raining but I clocked up nearly 8,000 steps before 9.00am so I wouldn’t have to go so far in the afternoon when the forecast was not good but it turned out to be ok so went for a stroll in Poringland woods later in the day
12th -13,178 . Still a gale! Roman Town walk as usual in the morning , then Gurney Woods and UEA sports fields later - good walks but nothing notable.
13th - 13,996. Eaton Golf course in afternoon - will really miss having access to these lovely walks when golf starts again !
14th 17,823 such a lovely morning I went much further in my early morning walk round fields at Roman Town , then walked at the Saxlingham paths later in the day - primroses looking a bit bedraggled after recent gales but still looking lovely and Spring-like
15th 12,175 only just managed to meet the challenge today with other commitments. Lovely walk round Whitlingham Lake but in too much of a rush to take much notice of bird life !
16th 18,229 started the day with great walk at Dunston - saw two green woodpeckers together - thanks to chancing on Liz , our local wildlife photographer who had spotted them. Walked later with friend from Eaton across to Keswick Church - quite muddy again and then all the way round Eaton golf course again - good step count today !
17th 15,256 Long walk at Roman Town with Jane before rain set in. Then sun shone again for my later walk at Gurney woods - lovely Spring blossoms here - see photos
18th 16,941 More rain ! Nevertheless Sue and I had good walk at Eaton and Marston - always good to walk with a friend and dog - Penny appreciates having a 4legged companion too ! Saw parakeets at Marston - migrated from London ?
19th 19,069- best day so far ! Beautiful sunny day. After a bit of a disaster on my early morning walk where I stepped in a muddy puddle - far deeper than anticipated! (Dawn French incident?) Ended up with a wellie full of muddy water and had to squelch all the way back to the car park ! Anyway found a lovely new walk in afternoon at Bungay Outney marshes all along the river -see photos
20th 15,163 sheep are back at Roman Town with their lambs , a real sign of Spring but still plenty of fields to walk. Back to Outney in afternoon but this time walked my usual walk there round perimeter of golf course but this time could come back over the course.
21st 15,571 went to Swardeston field walk along the valley for my afternoon walk. Walks are thankfully drying up again. Lots of rape grown here - shooting up with good growing conditions
22nd 14,322 start of my last full week . Walked really early along Tas -got there before 7am . My early start was rewarded with the most incredible bird song. Finding it hard to get a good number of steps with other commitments! Gurney woods and UEA for my longer walk
23rd 16,554 Chose to go walking on edge of Dunston golf course for early walk- unfortunately Penny caught a baby rabbit - normally she is good at bringing me any catches but in this case she decided to demolish it - I think she must be feeling extra hungry from all the increased exercise ! Later I walked with Margaret at Eaton - we had planned to go right round the golf course but they have now stopped walkers to get everything shipshape for next week when golf will start again .So we walked round Marston marshes ( no parakeets this time) and then across to Keswick Church and back .
24th 17,751. Started with a short walk round Roman Town - lovely sunny morning- see lambs photo . Experienced a new walk later and joined Jane walking from Postwick down to the river and then on to Brundall Marina . Then at the end of the day it was a beautiful evening so had a brisk walk round Roman Town again just to add a few more steps - this is getting to be an obsession!
25th 17,125 Beautiful day so did a long walk in morning along Tas river and round fields at Roman Town and lots of people to chat to too ! Have not seen the Little Egret for a few days , perhaps it has gone in search of a mate. Sat on bench at top of hill overlooking Tas valley for a while - lovely views , so lucky to have this so near to home. Lots more lambs are appearing day by day. Afternoon walk at Gurney woods and UEA again
26th 14,732 shorter walks today but managed to achieve steps by doing delivery of local mags at end of the day ! On morning walk saw Little Egret is back , still no mate but lovely to see it back feeding from the flood pools on the marshes. In the afternoon scampered round Poringland woods - walking through the hazel wood, lovely to see leaf buds bursting forth and lots of primroses
27th 19,282 beautiful morning again .walked at Dunston - churchyard looking a picture with all the daffodils and golf course looking ready for the onslaught of golfers on Monday ! -see photos . In the afternoon I walked from Swardeston along river valley then across fields to Mulbarton- a quick social distance call on Carole and Jimmy then back - hence good step count!
28th 18,654 Had to do most of my steps on my own as Penny had a sore paw from a huge thorn she had picked up on her rampage through Mulbarton woods yesterday . Walked from Stoke to Caistor across fields and back - taking the longer way round to increase my steps - lots of primroses again on banks
29th 14,828 Penny firing on all four legs/cylinders today ! Saw the heron again quite close down by the Tas - then rewarded with the sight of it flying down the valley - what lovely graceful flight - too quick to get a photo though. Saxlingham fields for afternoon walk . Lots of primroses again (getting boring - never !) looking lovely in the bright sunlight. A treat to have nice dry walks again
30th18,382 Beautiful day -perfect very early morning walk by the river before a day full of action to celebrate my birthday . Gardening group in the morning in Brooke so several steps done there then walking with friends round lots of grassy fields at Saxlingham in the afternoon.
31st 16,701 . Early morning along to Tas - another perfect morning with lots of wildlife , swans , muntjac deer in the woods over the other side of the river, a lone grey lag goose who didn’t seem to enjoy being on its own - it kept calling for its companions ! And of course my friend the Little Egret - still cannot get close enough for a decent photo but a very familiar sight in the valley now. A good stride through Poringland woods in the afternoon- good to see so many families out enjoying the sunshine . And an evening stroll round the Roman Town watching the frolicking lambs - marvellous to have the light evenings again . That’s the end to my challenge - thank you all for your support . I have really enjoyed all the walking and really appreciate how lucky I am to have so much lovely countryside on my doorstep
