Although I still read anything I can get my hands on, I enjoy the outdoor life as well. My husband and I spent a great deal of time walking long-distance footpaths and the Cumbrian fells.
We also cycled and swam, and I’m still a keen runner. But not all at once. I know my limitations. You won’t catch me doing triathlons! For a good many years, we also did archery; Field, Target and Clout (never tried Popinjay), until I broke my shoulder and can’t now pull a bow.Nowadays, apart from the running, most of my exercise comes from dog-walking and growing vegetables – and fighting to keep the allotments from being swallowed up by developers
