#Technology: "One way to reduce #transport emissions relatively quickly, and potentially globally, is to swap cars for #cycling, e-#biking and #walking – active travel, as it’s called."

theconversation.com/cycling-is-ten… #solutions
"Tackling the #climate and air #pollution #crises requires curbing all motorised #transport, particularly private cars, as quickly as possible. Focusing solely on #ElectricVehicles is slowing down the race to zero emissions."
"We also estimate that urban residents who switched from driving to cycling for just one trip per day reduced their carbon footprint by about half a tonne of CO₂ over the course of a year, and save the equivalent emissions of a one-way flight from London to New York."

#Walking The need to walk as a form of exercise cannot be stressed more. #10K steps a day is most recommended now a days. The largest and strongest joints and bones of the human body are in the legs. Strong bones, strong muscles and flexible joints form the Iron Triangle that
carries the most important load i.e. the human body. 70% of human activity and burning of energy in one's life is done by the two feet. When a person is young, his/ her thighs have enough strength to lift a small car of 800 kg! The foot is the center of body locomotion. Both the
legs together have 50% of the nerves of the human body, 50% of the blood vessels and 50% of the blood is flowing through them. It is the largest circulatory network that connects the body. So walk daily. Only when the feet are healthy then the convention current of blood flows

How to start walking, to get active, even if you have never exercised
As part of my #ship30for30 Cohort, I wrote my first atomic essay about one of my favorite activities #Walking🚶. Here it is as a 🧵
1/12 Moving more improves our health - We all know that. But...
We spend hours and hours sitting on our desks, and then we eat, and then we sleep. And we repeat.
2/12 To get out of this endless cycle, I signed up for gym memberships. But that gathered dust, while showing up as debit on my bank cards. I found a better way, and best of all it was free.

#VirtualDogWalk
Curiosity took me to a new location, but the sign I’d seen from the road turned out to be for a BMX track, not for a nature reserve!
Luckily a familiar walk was close-by.
Waffle was ecstatic when I let her roll in something smelly as a treat.
I may regret this!
1/
I was happy to see the wind turbines spinning around.
How I would have loved these as a child. I was fascinated by all kinds of windmills. The stone ones in the Fens, with their enormous wooden sails, and the brightly coloured plastic ones we played with in the garden at home.
2/
Waffle went off and rooted around in the heather.
I’ve no idea what she found and ate.
No doubt it was something disgusting!

My birthday #VirtualDogWalk
Today we decided to find a walking route to the foot of the Hownsgill viaduct.
I’ve spent a lot of time looking down from it, but I’ve never had a chance to look up at it.
Our first foray was promising.
The horses seemed to be saying “this way”.
1/
But we soon reached a dead end and had to double back.
The next attempt was successful.
We could see the viaduct in the distance and a muddy track led in the right direction.
As usual I was loitering taking in all the sights and the sounds, while Waffle dog was keen to get on.
2/
We hadn’t been expecting good weather so I was wearing waterproofs.
But the birthday gift nature gave me was sunshine and blue skies.
A yank on the lead let me know Waffle was impatient to make some progress.

The last #VirtualDogWalk of 2021, dedicated to @autismage who is in my thoughts today.
Drizzle en route gives way to sunshine, and the fields are illuminated.

It you’re wondering where Waffle is she’s gone on ahead with my partner.
When I’m walking with other people I realise not everyone dilly dallies quite as much as I do!

What a difference a day can make in terms of the weather.
Yesterday it was all sunlight and luminescence.
Today it was muddy and grey.
But not dull, never that!

There was still a lot of scampering about to be done.
Sniffing, and rooting, then dashing off into the distance to play with another dog.
Recall went right out of the window at this point.
But luckily she soon came zooming back.
2/
I adore Waffle’s ostrich plume tail.
She was getting rather muddy underneath though.
When we got back I’d have to give her a bath.

"For a long time, I slotted my bazaar walks as a time-waster. Why, I didn't even have shopping to show for it!" .@suchiswriting #whyloiter #walking #women #tuesdaytakeover
And then I read "The Artist's Way" by Julia Cameron. She prescribes something she calls The Artist Date, a weekly date with, er, yourself. She writes: "The Artist Date is a once-weekly, festive, solo expedition to explore something that interests you." #theartistsway
"The Artist Date need not be overtly 'artistic'– think mischief more than mastery. Artist Dates fire up the imagination. They spark whimsy. They encourage play."

Claudio Flores of Ecuador finished the #50km #Walking race last... at over one hour behind the winner from Poland (Dawid Tomala)... but the crowd on the footpaths waited patiently for him to cheer him right till the end.. Kudos... #Olympics
1/2... I have said before... Indian climates are not friendly for "Endurance Sports".... Gurpreet Singh failed to finish the #50Km #Walking and suffered cramps very early on.. When will @WeAreTeamIndia & GOI realise this?
2/2.. Govt & IOA should not invest in promotion of #Walking or #Marathons It has nothing in store for Indians.. If some athlete wants.. let it be personally/privately funded effort.. not state funds.. #GurpreetSingh #Olympics @WeAreTeamIndia @ianuragthakur

My first instinct was to head for a large woodland area.
But my car’s in the garage today.
Izzy overheated when I took her out in the campervan on Saturday.
I didn’t want to risk doing that again.
So we set off on foot.

We would have set off earlier but my @Tesco delivery was delayed.
The driver said queues at a local vaccination centre had held him up.
He was wearing a facemask, which I appreciated.
At last we were making our way up the side of the field, along a very narrow and nettly path.
2/
As we reached the corner of the field the path became much easier to navigate.
I could see where all the wild flowers in my garden had come from now.
The sun was blazing down fiercely on us.
We were sweltering hot, so I decided to seek out a bit of shade for us to cool off in.

Having had to abandon our day in the campervan, due to the heat, we decided to spend yesterday evening and last night in it instead.
This was Izzy’s first overnight stay on a campsite.
After booking in we went for a walk along the lane.
6pm but still scorching.
1/
We soon found a Public Footpath sign.
I wasn’t entirely sure where it was pointing, but we set off along a track which seemed to be going in the right direction.

First, we did a review of the literature (narrative, not a #systematicreview. This was back in my pre-systematic review days!) dx.doi.org/10.1007/s40279… in @SportsMedicineJ

🙏 @DieenJaap, Kirsten Albracht, Prof. Brüggemann, Dr. Vergroesen
It has been well established that exercise and loading can impact IVD height. E.g. doi.org/10.1097/000076… doi.org/10.1249/mss.0b…

So, exercise and movement protocols can at least ‘influence’ the IVD

There were three of us out walking today, because it seemed churlish to leave my partner behind on our wedding anniversary.

We found a footpath leading down to a small reservoir.

It was a bit like being by the sea with the waves rolling in.

#DogsOfTwitter

1/
We decided to walk the whole of the service road around the edge of the reservoir.

We weren’t far from one of our usual walks, but it was good to have some different views to look at.

The rain caught up with us part way round but Izzy didn’t mind.

She has a lovely warm undercoat and her top coat is water resistant.

A good shake now and then and she’s happy.

The moss and lichen on the old stone wall were beautiful.

It was so windy today we went up to the hills in my tiny Toyota, not the high-top campervan.

It was bitterly cold but sunny with some lovely cloud reflections.

Izzy wasn’t bothered by the cold or wind, being up here always seems to exhilarate her.

I was glad to be wearing my eBay bargain £6 salopettes.

Today’s walk was designed to avoid the BH crowds, and it paid off.

It was worth picking our way along a muddy track and crossing a stony dry stream bed.

We didn’t see anyone until we nearly got home.

Blissful!

Today the sun was winning against a cool breeze and the trees were coming into leaf.

Friday’s walk, with more than a hint of green on the wheat field.

I got caught off guard by a phone call from my GP half way round the top field, so this didn’t get posted.

The trees will be bursting into leaf soon. Oh joy!

We ventured a little way into the woods and found a fallen moss covered branch that would make a lovely bench to sit on.

A walk through the woods with birdsong.

Spring was in the air today.
We were greeted by a bird that sounded like a squeaky wheel.

I lost another ferrule off my hiking stick up on the hills today, but it was worth it!
The snow is still really thick and powdery and the sun was bright.

I wondered why Izzy was lagging behind instead of pushing on in front like she normally does.

Then I realised it was the depth of the snow. She was doing the sensible thing and following in my footsteps!

Once the snow got less deep Izzy was back out in front again with a waggy tail.

There’s no doubt about it, Izzy loves going on walks!

Feel free to join me and Izzy for a #VirtualDogWalk up on the fells.

It’s breezy, so if blustering is too much, you may prefer sound off.
This is the fell I see from my kitchen window. I’m enjoying taking in the view, but someone else is ready for the off!

What I love about being up here in the winter, is that we hardly see anyone, just the odd dog walker, fell runner or sheep.

Every day is Sunday for me at the moment. No going “out out”. Just immersed in being at home with occasional walks.
I thought it was Sunday most of yesterday. That’s how marginal the distinction has become.

1/
When I was a child most shops were closed on Sundays. It was often a welcome break in an overwhelming week. A pause, a punctuation mark. There was a familiar and predictable routine. Church, Sunday School, roast dinner, homework, afternoon tea and TV. Essential downtime.
2/
In the police I worked shifts which included Sundays. We’d often get called to check on elderly neighbours, catch up on paperwork, and visit unoccupied premises. Sunday was less intense than the rest of the week, a welcome lull after the uproar of Friday and Saturday nights.

1⃣ People want LTNs and cycle lanes, and opposition has been inflated.

People overestimate other people’s opposition to walking and cycling infrastructure. Concerns about new infrastructure are quickly overcome when people see the benefits.

livingstreets.org.uk/ltns
2⃣ LTNs & cycle lanes reduce congestion.

Studies have shown that installing LTNs results in some people driving fewer trips, combining multiple trips into one, travelling at a less congested time or switching to public transport, walking or cycling.

livingstreets.org.uk/ltns
3⃣ #LTNs and cycle lanes are good for business.

Our #PedestrianPound research shows footfall increases 20-35% on streets where the pedestrian experience has been improved.

For well-designed projects, sales can increase by 30% when footfall is boosted.
