Advent Ultra Step Challenge Day Navigator –
It’s a little bit warmer today…About 5˚C so i didn’t need my super warm gloves for half of the adventure. It was also another dry day (which was nice) although i think it might rain for tomorrows walk! ☹️
I would also like to inform you…I have my first blister on the back of my right foot! I can’t believe i’ve managed it this far without getting one…But Sarah bought me some super duper running socks for this challenge and they are fantastic, and combined with my reward for losing 3 stone…My Puma Ultra Running Shoes…These are the best trainers i’ve ever owned, so cushioned and springy…
When i returned home today i called for the medic…And my lovely wife Sarah treated my stinging wound. ❤️
Oh…In case i didn’t tell you…My fave jacket ever (below) was the kind reward i received for losing 4 stone…
As i mentioned yesterday i’d found a new path to add to my routes…But i didn’t really explore past the crossroads i’d ended up at. This is where i ask for your help!
🎶 I’m standing at the crossroads 🎶 in the image above and i decided to turn right and see how far down the path i could go before either my eyesight failed or the path got too bad or disappeared. I hadn’t walked very far until i walked into this…It seems to my eyes like a huge military fence with top secret weapons etc inside…But could you please describe for me what the camera is seeing but which my eyes cannot see?
Once i realised my route was blocked (I wasn’t waiting around for the doberman guard dogs or the sniper red laser sights, lol) i turned round and tried the 2nd path which quickly turned into an obstacle too. I thought i could just about make out a very blurry white picket fence which seemed to block the entire path. Could you please help me out at describing the image below too as i’ve no idea what i’ve taken? 😀
Well there is only 1 more path left to try and it was a nice yellow brick road type of path which was nice and straight. I walked as far as i could go and turned to take the last photo of the day…
Now it was time to head back and see what flavour Grenade bar was waiting for me behind door number 10?! 💪🏼
Today’s Grenade bar advent calendar flavour is…
Grenade Carb Killa Chocolate Chip Salted Caramel Bar…Mmmmmm A triple-layered treat, featuring a tasty salted caramel layer, soft nougat and a delicious milk chocolate coating. Now this was the business…I’m defo getting a box of these! 💪🏼 😀
