Week 2 – Day 3 – Trail Marathon Training…
Hi all. Wow that was hard…But i managed 5laps non stop in 3 hours 45minutes…That’s 13.5 miles which is just over a half marathon!! Yay i’m happy…Well now it’s over anyway, lol! 🤣
I bought a SIS (science in sport) energy gel for the first time last Saturday to try on my walks, it was orange flavour and was very tasty…It tasted like a orange lucozade but with a viscosity of thick custard…MMMM perfect for me as i love custard! I also had my fave – chocolate hob nobs with me too as they are simply delicious and work really well for me. I love all of this walking as i can eat and burn off my fave biscuits, cake and gels as i’m going round the laps…Win win, lol! 🤣
When i eventually arrived home i was greeted with another fresh coffee and also a cheese and salad sandwich by my lovely wife Sarah…Wow how amazing is she?! ❤️
Well 5 laps (13.5 miles) is the longest walk i need to do in January, then it’s going to be 6 laps in February! 😰
Hope you’ve had a great time so far this January, and you’re smashing your health and fitness goals too?! 💪🏼 😀

The Reason For All Of My Suffering (i mean training, lol)…
I’m planning to step off the sidelines again soon… 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.
I’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.
I’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! ❤️😀 Oh please help me by sharing my JustGiving page to anyone you know who may be interested! 💪🏼
