Blindman Trail Marathon Training – Week 3 – Day 6&7 – Total: 36 Miles This Week…
The Brobdingnagian VEGETABLES…
Hi all. As part of my 2 day rest from endless walking Monday to Friday, Sarah & i like to go shopping at our local market on Saturday to get some FAT vegetables as we both like really chunky veg. My lovely wife Sarah peels and chops them into monstrous sizes and then cooks them ready for the week. Sarah wanted to get Brussels Sprout stalks this week as they seem to last longer and are much bigger sprouts…As you may or may not notice in the image below…They are like tennis balls and tasted amazing, i’m looking forward to chomping on the rest this week, lol! 🤣
I also took a photo of the carrots Sarah was preparing too, as they looked like the tree logs i was climbing during my tough mudder training…You’d think with all of these enormous carrots that i’d be able to see much better, lol! 🤣
It was also ‘Steak Sunday’ but we didn’t go to the local butchers this time and bought an M&S sirloin instead. Sarah cut off the fat from the steak first (we both hate it) and i weighed it just for fun…It was just over 100grams…That’s just over 900 CALORIES!! 😨 I could’ve had nearly 10 chocolate hob nobs for that, lol! 🤣
After our 9oz steak each last Sunday we settled for 6oz today after Sarah hacked off the nasty fat…But as always Sarah does something magic to it and it’s so tender and soft with oodles of taste! 😋
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! 💪🏼
Hope you’ve started this new month smashing your health and fitness goals? Let’s ‘FitBlitz’ February together!! 💪🏼 😀

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