Did my penultimate long training run tonight. There was quite a bit of rain but quite a bit of sun and there was a faint rainbow. A good promise for the walk though I have a big blister on one big toe. Compeed plaster needed!
I have been struggling to embed videos about why I’m doing what I’m doing but I hope these give you a flavour…..
Been a busy week at work and trying to sort logistics for the walk so apologies for the lack of posts. About 6 weeks ago this sunflower broke in the middle so I pruned the top off. But it has regrown and was close to flowering when some wind early in the weekend broke theContinue reading “Sunflowers..”
I have been very tired after all the exercise (nearly 25k steps again yesterday including just short of a half marathon training run). Battered on Southend Pier by the wind though it didn’t rain. And got a blister under my big toe (thank goodness for compeed plasters!) Then there is normal life to cope with!Continue reading “Keeping going..”
Today was more boot wearing in, today with a backpack; around 8+ miles or 15k steps. A little sore around bottom of my legs where boots grip but otherwise just pretty tired. But good training for the rigours of the upcoming walk. 2 new places to add to my list of visited places. Interesting toContinue reading “More preparations”
Yesterday I went to Beachy Head and the Seven sisters near Eastbourne, iconic locations in the Battle of Britain. It was a thrill to see a Spitfire fly overhead too. A reminder of the few who gave their lives for the many. As well as being one of my 60 activities for the year andContinue reading “More Heroes..”
Looks pretty unremarkable, doesn’t it. A small, well thumbed devotional with Psalm 23 (The Lord’s my shepherd) in Korean and a signature. But it’s one of my prized possessions… Hea Woo is one of the most remarkable ladies I have met. Now in her early 70’s she is a pocket dynamo of passion for JesusContinue reading “Heroes..”
First post in a few days but a lot has been happening behind the scenes! My new boots have arrived and been tried out, together with a old rucksack. Just a bit more wearing in to do. Ordered a Cape (vermilion in colour!) that covers the rucksack and to make me feel really old I’mContinue reading “Preparations….”
Yesterday I visited my brother in Suffolk and did around 6 miles walking; the previous day I ran nearly 9 and walked about 5. Sat at the desk today though. About £260 raised so far which is a good start. Was really fed up and frustrated about lack of progress on accommodation for the PilgrimsContinue reading “Accommodation update”
I had the privilege of speaking about 60@60 on “This is my story” on UCB2 radio today. Thanks Ruth O’Reilly Smith! Getting accommodation for the Pilgrims way walk is challenging at the moment. The picture below reminds us of the need to stand up for the many who have lost their jobs and are beingContinue reading “UCB Radio”
