Forlorn Friday: Feel The Burn!

Blindman Trail Marathon Training – Week 4/12 – Day 5 – 5.33 Miles…

Hi all. Wow what a morning! It was ultra bright, ultra cold -1˚C and time to break out the puffer jacket! I don’t know how but i still managed 1 lap (3.33 miles) this morning, not the 2 laps i had planned but i needed time on feet to reach over 30 miles this week again. I simply couldn’t have done 2 laps if i tried, the sun was so bright it burnt my eyes and they were finished, even the peak on my cap did very little to help so i call this a recovery day after my personal best walk on wednesday!

As i was going at a snails pace i managed to stop and take some photos. I thought the images would show a little of how bad the sun was as i pointed my phone directly into the blinding light…But they really don’t show how bad it was! 😨

Flapjack Fuel…

It wasn’t all bad news though…As i arrived home early my lovely wife Sarah said “Awww you’re back already i thought the sun was just too bright for you. How about we walk to the bakers at lunchtime during my break and get you some flapjacks (walking fuel)?! It will also give you an extra 2 miles for today!”. Wow…How amazing is my wife?! 😋 ❤️ Oh and i think the stupendous flapjacks need a post of their own…They are so tasty and perfect for fuelling my walks too! 😋

Hope you’ve started this new month smashing your health and fitness goals too? 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! 💪🏼
