The other day a colleague was talking to me and told me he’d got the bus from Cannon Street to work like I always do. He said ‘I could’ve walked it quicker’
I wondered whether it was because he’d been later arriving than I usually do but yesterday when I missed the bus by seconds I thought I’d walk and see if he was right. It was a beautiful day and I thought of the bonus steps I’d earn on my Fitbit.
My colleague was right, I kept the missed bus in my sight the entire walk. At one point I caught it up and could have actually got on it. But I continued to walk and the bus and I arrived seconds apart.
This morning I did it again. I’m not so sure I’ll keep it up in the mid-winter but while it’s not raining I will keep doing it. This is certainly motivating me
When you simply hop on a bus, or even worse, a tube, you often miss so much in this amazing city. I’m getting my bearings more and more each day
