Come and get fit with me on my morning walk. I open the door and its nice and cool at 6:30 am. I walk down the street for a few hundred metres and then enter a park. The concrete path winds through the bush and starts climbing up the hill. I skirt along the back of some houses and cross over a bridge above a quiet road and then enter the Springwood Conservation Park. Now the climb gets steeper and steeper until I'm on top of a ridge overlooking a gorge.
Now the path drops down to the floor of the gorge.
We have had some much needed rain and the little creek has some water again.
Now comes the fun part. We have to climb out of the gorge up to the other side. There are only 150 steep steps. Are you ready?
You may have to stop for a breather and admire the beauty around you before we tackle some more steps. After a few days you can do it without stopping.
Almost at the top. Your heart is pumping and you are breathing heavy.
Now it is an easy walk along the top of the gorge and then down the hill home. It takes me an hour but you just did it in a few minutes. Well done. Tomorrow we can do it all again.
