Posted: Yesterday at 18:02

Can't see me being fit enough to do this.  Does anyone know if you can hold your entry over to next year or is it use it or lose it?  Ta.

Well done Limper. Sorry not been around what between work and childminding I have been busy. Not much walking getting done. Well fitting in 5 and 6 miles but nothing longer. Away in caravan this weekend with 5 year old grandson. Worn out and will be happy to take him home tomorrow.

Evening. Lucky boys off on their travels.

Are you busy at work that is making you tired? Stress and tiredness can wipe you out. Maybe just short runs to help relieve the stress. Would that work? Sorry you are having a horrible time just now.

Managed another plod and it went a little better. Having to mix plodding with days of walks seeing as I am doing Kielder Water Challenge so still need to train to walk 25 miles.

Weather not good here. Wind and dull. It was lovely up till Tuesday but has gone down hill. Typical Scotland.

Hope you have managed out for a run.  Hope you are ok.  What is the event that is coming up?

I walked 3 miles yesterday and I plodded 3 miles today.  My legs were strong, left knee protested a little but the big thing was my serious lack of breath.  It was my first pplod and I just couldn't breathe properly so it was very much a plod/walk.

How are the boys?

Thank you Limper. I did 14 miles but was struggling for about the last 3. No idea why. This weekend my plan is to start plodding. Hoping to have a short walk later today then because of work times can't fit in anything till Friday.

Sorry to hear you are still struggling. Hope things get better for you soon.

What a lovely day it has been. So glad I don't work a Monday. Did a lovely 11 mile walk in the sunshine. Back of neck feels very hot tonight. Guess sun was behind me.

How are you all?

Thank you Limper. Legs have felt a bit tired this week so haven't ventured out much. Looking for another challenge for July. Have entered Kielder Water Challenge in Sept - 25 mile walk round the lake ???
Hope everyone is well.

Hi all. Well I managed the walk. Completed it in 8.5hrs. The weather all day Saturday was awful so the park where it started was a mud bath. Our wave went off at midnight. The rain had stopped about 9pm. The weather throughout the night was beautiful. It was strange walking throughout the night. It was fab walking up Arthurs Seat in the dark. Walking along the coast watching the sun rise over the sea was awesome. I did hit the wall at about 20 miles but picked up again at 23 miles. So chuffed with myself for finishing. I would post a photo of me in my bra but don't know how to....just as well really. Now onto the next challenge ????
