Deep Freeze Friday: 6 Miles (35 Training Miles this week)! ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ

Stew pond on my trail marathon route.

Hi all. i really didn’t want to let go o my lovely warm coffee this morning after checking the weather app…It said it was -2หšC but feels like -5หšC! ๐Ÿ˜จ I dragged myself towards the front door wearing my puffer jacket and bobble hat…My ears were not going to freeze off today, lol! ๐Ÿคฃ I managed the 6 freezing miles today which made a total of 35 training miles this week which was my goal of this 3 month marathon training plan!!! ๐Ÿ™Œ

More uphill on my trail marathon route!

I was out for around 1h 40mins and averaged 3.5 mph. This pace is good for me and also enables me to take a few photos on route, so you can hopefully enjoy some of this beautiful scenery too! ๐Ÿ˜ฒ ๐Ÿ˜€

More bends on my trail marathon route.

Oh i forgot to say…When i arrived home i found that i’d reached my exercise goal for the January badge award on my apple watch….This was a lovely end of my walking week and i’ll totally enjoy my rest and recovery for the next 2 days, before i do it all again next week! ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ ๐Ÿ˜€

January Challenge Badge…

Wow…I smashed my January challenge goal!

Hope you’ve had a great time so far this January, and you’re smashing your health and fitness goals too?! ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ ๐Ÿ˜€

The Reason For All Of My Suffering (i mean training, lol)…

Please click the image above to read all about my fundraising story.

Iโ€™m planning to step off the sidelines again soonโ€ฆ this time in memory of my wonderful mum, Valerie who died after a 14 yr struggle with Multiple Sclerosis, in the same month that I was registered blind.

Iโ€™ve always wanted to do something positive to celebrate her life and as you may know, my lovely wife Sarah has just started work at the MS Society. I can think of no better time or charity to make my fundraising in memory wish come true and I can finally add my mums name to the MS Society fight to BEAT MS.


Iโ€™m possibly stretching myself a little too far for this challenge and so I’d really appreciate your support…Please click the MS Society photo above to read all about my challenge, my story and if you can…Please donate and help me reach my fundraising target! โค๏ธ๐Ÿ˜€ Oh please help me by sharing my JustGiving page to anyone you know who may be interested! ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ
