Walking Record Wednesday: Fantastic But Fatiguing! 💪🏼

Blindman Trail Marathon Training – Week 3 – Day 3 – 15.85 Miles…

Hi all. I can’t tell you how happy i am to have made it around 6 laps (15.85 miles) today. This is a life long personal record for non stop walking for me…Yet i’m so glad it’s over, lol! 🤣

Beta Blockers & Bendroflumethiazide…

I was a little worried about today’s attempt as not only do i have to fight ‘Beta Blocker’ medication but also ‘Bendroflumethiazide’ too. This is a diuretic which makes you want to pee to help lower blood pressure…But doesn’t help when you want to go for a long walk through the woods, lol! 🤣 Sorry to talk about this but i still can’t believe i made it for 15.85 miles for 4 hours 13 minutes non stop without needing to pee…Another victory for me and is just one more obstacle on this epic challenge! 💪🏼

All of this made for a lot of calculations and i was pleased that it all went to plan…Starting with my lovely wife Sarah making me a fantastic espresso (not much liquid) pre walk with a couple of dry slices of 7 seed wholemeal toast (Elwood Blues style). I also carried some water, lucozade sport and my rocket fuel known as chocolate hob nobs!

My walk was really tough, the sun was unbelievably bright and yet i still managed to drag myself around with crazy determination…And 7 chocolate hob nobs, yay!! 🤣

When i arrived home my lovely wife Sarah had made me a much bigger coffee, a cheese salad sandwich and gave me a massive hug which is exactly what i needed…Once i’d sat down, lol! 🤣

Also i was crowned with the ‘New Workout Record’ and ‘New Exercise Record’ award badges for almost killing myself today, i’d been after these for ages and i’m so pleased i got them…Fantastic!

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

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

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! 💪🏼
