    Cheers man.

    Tbh seeing the others stories is more inspiring to me than anything. I had it easy in comparison. And seeing people who have lost their children doing this for them?
    Breaks my heart man.
    I really just want to stop sitting about talking and really want to get more involved.
    Who knows.....might work up to a 5k or 10k eventually


    I only have the fundraiser on my Facebook page but can give that over ( as long as admin are cool with that).

    Walked up Conic Hill with the missus today then a wee bit round about it.

    Not a particular long walk but very steep in places was good fun, first time I’ve done a hill of that size. Felt pretty fit and the work I’ve been doing on the spin bike has really helped with incline walking.

    Had to call it today for my 100 miles.

    Struggled through 60 the last few weeks and got my ankle seen to....tendonitis

    So need to rest up but hopefully I can reach that 100 as I was aiming for 120-150

    Started back yesterday and done 30km already

    Didnt entirely stop last week. Still managed on average about 7-10km a day. So between my wife and I (she helped a little bit)....that's over 100miles!!!!!

    The lbs haven't shifted as much as I thought and that's me being on a decent diet and drinking much less.

    But going to keep this up walking to work and that...been good to get these * lungs challenged

    First day in gym since lockdown. Still trained during lockdown, weights, running, sit ups and stuff. Thought I had maintained strength, but today was an eye opener shoulders and chest way weaker than before :(. Good to be back though

    I know the feeling mate, hard going but worth it. Beats any gym work out.

    Been doing a 10k outdoor circuit most days, walking a bit then jogging a bit. Can feel my fitness improving but struggling to run any decent distance, maybe need to slow my pace down. Slower pace but hopefully longer distance.
