Blindman Trail Marathon Training – Week 5/12 – Day 4…18.13 Miles…😲
Hi all. I seriously didn’t think i was going to smash these personal best times yesterday, as i kicked a fallen tree and nearly went flying…But i managed to land ok without doing a triple forward somersault. The sun was so bright it was almost impossible to navigate a trail i couldn’t see at all and the muddy sludge was simply sapping my energy…And this was just the first lap! 😨
As usual i was telling myself not to be mardy and to stop making every excuse on why i was going to quit after 1 lap and go home…I think it was knowing that after i’d done 2 laps i could break out the chocolate hob nobs! 💪🏼
I always message Sarah after each lap and she was fantastic at motivating me with her mighty messages. I really had to dig deep over these 7 laps as my legs just didn’t want to move and it took every last hob nob (yes i had 12) to keep them moving for a little over 5 hours!! I was amazed (but thankful) that i didn’t need a toilet break and after powering round the last lap (just to get home for my dinner and to finally stop walking) i fell through the front door…Yes i literally dropped and dragged myself to the stairs to sit down…I felt like a zombie that’d had it’s legs blown off yet was still trying to drag itself forward, lol! 🤣
As i’d taken over 5 hours i arrived half way through Sarah’s lunch break…But as she is so amazingly lovely she not only given me a huge hug and a congratulations, but she’d made me a fresh coffee and an incredible cheese sandwich with beetroot, tomatoes, apple and the fantastic love heart shaped cucumber!! ❤️

Mmmm now that was tasty. Once i’d finished my lunch i checked my fitness app to see which (if any) badges i’d won for breaking my personal best records, as i like to document my progress as it helps keep me motivated and accountable. I am excited to find i’d been awarded 3 personal bests…Well i actually earned a 4th as i’d never eaten a whole pack of chocolate hob nobs (12 per pack). 😋

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! 💪🏼
