Fallout Friday: 6 Miles Of Wet Muddy Wasteland 😨

Blindman Trail Marathon Training – Week 3 – Day 5 – 6 Miles…Total: 36 Miles This Week…

Hi all. Now that was a freezing, soaking and horrific 6 miles today! The weather app only gave out light showers this morning, so i really wasn’t prepared for the absolute drenching that battered me 10 minutes into my walk. At this point there was no time to turn back as i was already soaked…So i put on my 4mph pace playlist and charged around 2 laps for 6 miles!

It wasn’t all negative though as it was like the wasteland from the video game Fallout 4. There were no dog walkers blocking my path, cyclists flying past…Actually there were no other people out at a all which was amazing for me. Once i’d left the thought of it being a radiation rain storm (Fallout 4) behind i realised there was no glare from the sun as it was all grey, no people on my trail and the track was slightly shining from all of the rain making it light up…It was perfect conditions for my sight loss. It felt really good splashing around the trail on my own with my music on and not worrying about all of the moving targets (human obstacles). 🤣

Muddy Wet Trail…

Wet and muddy trail today

I only managed to take 1 photo today, i didn’t want to stand still for too long as i’d be swept away, lol! 🤣

I’m really happy about this week’s (week 3 of 12) training as i managed 36 training miles which is 1 more than last week…Progressing a little more each week, yay! 💪🏼 Now it’s time for the weekend to rest and recover…By eating…Protein of course to heal my micro tears, lol! 🤣

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! 💪🏼
