Footslog Thursday: Awww This Is Tough! 😰

Blindman Trail Marathon Training – Week 3 – Day 4 – 6 Miles…

Hi all. Since when has the phrase “I’m only doing 2 laps (6 miles) today’ ever been a standard by me in this house, or even been uttered, lol 🤣 I need to stop, get back in bed and go to sleep instead!

Wow that was hard…

I felt like i was in the movie ‘The Wrong Trousers – Wallace & Gromit’ this morning, as no matter what my instructions were to my legs…They just kept plodding on and ignoring my command to stop…My mind was writing cheques my body wouldn’t cash. When i did eventually squeek to a halt i managed to take this photo of the stew pond…

It took me a minute to get going again as my lower legs felt like heavy blocks…Well they felt like a couple of blocks of lamb donor meat cooking on a vertical rotisserie…Hot and dripping with fat, lol! 🤣

I blame my personal best walk yesterday for all of this rebellion from my legs. It’s a strange sensation to be so happy that i’d done nearly 16 miles yesterday but also i have these legs that are not behaving. The good news is that i only have another 6 miles tomorrow and then 2 days off to recover, yay! 👏🏻

Hope you’ve started this new month smashing your health and fitness goals? Let’s ‘FitBlitz’ February together!! 💪🏼 😀

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! 💪🏼
