Thwarted Thursday: Trail Blocked!

Week 2 – Day 4 – Trail Marathon Training…

Hi all. After yesterday’s 13.5 miles my legs were still a little sore, so i wanted to just do a normal 6 miles today but at a really slow stroll to take care of my legs microtears. I was keeping a really slow pace (it’s really hard not to speed up) and i was walking around the first quarter of my route when…

I bumped straight into the road block (well path, lol) as i don’t notice anything is different until my nose is on it…But when i do i can stop very quickly…Thankfully, lol. I stopped for a moment and thought how i could get past it without damaging anything, then when i was satisfied that i just had to turn back and go home, i did just that…And then…

How on earth did this barrier get here i thought as i stopped once again. I’d only just walked past this way and it was completely clear…And now i’m trapped between both barriers like an animal caught in a trap! I then realised i had to try and get around this one or i’d be stuck here forever…So after feeling around the barrier i managed to climb through (somewhat clumsily) and then resigned myself for a short walk today. My escapade did add up to nearly 2 miles, and now i’ll just top up my protein and take care of my legs until tomorrow…I just hope this barrier won’t be there!! ❤️

Hope you’ve had a great time so far this January, and you’re smashing your health and fitness goals too?! 💪🏼 😀

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! 💪🏼
