Treacherous Tuesday: Fallen Tree! 😨

Blindman Trail Marathon Training – Week 6/12 – Day 2…6 Miles…

Hi all. After 3 storms last week i’d not managed to walk out to the trail until today…And as i was making my way to the start of my trail lap i hit the brakes (a full emergency stop, lol) as i kicked this treacherous obstacle. To most of you guys this isn’t treacherous at all, but once i’d told myself i wasn’t turning around and going home…I felt around it with my feet to make sure there wasn’t any branches sticking up etc…And simply stepped over it, yay! 😀

I then thought “If this has happened on the path before i even start the trail…Then what is the actual trail going to be like?” I had 2 laps (6 miles) to walk today and i was on high alert for the first lap making sure i didn’t hit anything else, but to my surprise it was all clear…Thank you rangers and volunteers for clearing the way after the storm! 💪🏼 😀

It was spookily quiet on the trail this morning after all of the storms, and i even stopped to take a photo of the beautiful stew pond, remembering that it’s so lovely around this nature reserve and i shouldn’t just blitz round and get my laps done, lol! 🤣

Let’s ‘FitBlitz’ 2022 together!! 💪🏼

    1. Hi, thanks so much for your kind words. I certainly don’t see myself as brave or courageous, lol…I simply have to get my miles in each week to try and train for this huge task for me…The trail marathon! 😨
      The training so far has been crazy cold, windy and super wet, it’s been really tough and i’m not an endurance type person at all…My wife Sarah says i am determined and strong minded when i give myself a ridiculous challenge, lol! 🤣
      My only excuse is that it’s for charity in memory of my mum, so i can’t let everyone down…Oh and i need to get fit too! 💪🏼 😀

      1. You underestimate your perseverance and sticktoittiveness–your willingness to stay the course. Wet, cold, and miserable? And yet you’re out. I admire your heart. And Sarah for being your best cheerleader.
