Flapjack Friday: Barriers & Chocolate Flapjacks! 😋

Week 2 – Day 5 – Trail Marathon Training…

Hi all, after yesterday’s trail closure setback i was a little hesitant to venture out this morning…Well as i held a hot fresh coffee (made by my lovely wife Sarah), it was 1˚C and i didn’t know if the trail would be open again, these were just some of the reasons i didn’t want to go out again this morning, lol! 🤣

When i did finally drag my lazy self out onto the trail…Yes you’ve guessed it…The dreaded barrier was still there!! 😨

I turned around again thinking i could do the trail backwards until i reach the other side of this barrier, then turn around and come back to get my mileage up for the day. Well i thought it sounded like a good idea until…The sun came out really bright with a nasty glare and i simply couldn’t stay on the path, as i didn’t know the route as well going this way round…My auto pilot couldn’t kick in as it only knows the other way now.

I texted Sarah (she’s so caring she likes to stay up to date with my progress to see if i’m ok) to say i was coming home again like yesterday as i walked home crestfallen. As i stepped inside Sarah gave me a big hug as she knew how dejected i’d feel and said “Would you like to go to the bakers at lunchtime and get some chocolate flapjacks as you have none left?”. Wow how amazing is my wife! ❤️

It takes just over 2 miles to walk to the bakery and back so this would help my walking for the day…And wow it’s so worth it for their fantastic flapjacks! I can’t tell you just how nice these square delicious delights are…I use them to fuel my walking (along with chocolate hob nobs) and wow what a motivator it is when walking through woods eating and burning off at the same time this stupendous treat…I’m really starting to like all of this walking now, lol! 🤣

Awww i’m getting hungry whilst writing about this!!

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! 💪🏼
