When the weather is wet or cold I can always go to the gym after a swim at Olympia although I do prefer to be out and about, experiencing nature, parks and seeing the sights of city life. This goes back to my upbringing in Perth town I think, also the 5 years spent in Aberdeen 1970-5, university life, going to cinemas even twice a week, cafes, shops, chilling out at the student union. Living in the country is fine when you have a car and enough money to keep it on the road and fill it with fuel. These 3yrs taking 2 buses into Dundee were not fun although I did try to make the most of it when possible. Glad to have survived.
Here's the route I walked today in Dundee, going first to buy a ticket for the Dundee fitba derby on 30 August at Tannadice:
And a wee walking video, towards Coldside Library:
I was wearing waterproof Merrell trainers but they gave me sore feet and were slippy on wet pavements. I persevered and did the 5mls, grumping a bit ... some photos from today:
