Today is a special day! After 3.5 months of daily walking (and, recently, running), I have completed my virtual walk from Heathrow Airport to my Auntie's house in Wales with a stop off at my cousin's in Liverpool - a total of 249 miles! It's been a lovely, nostalgic motivator; and I'm very glad I did it.

I started on December 29, 2013, and am feeling stronger and more motivated than ever as I finish on April 10, 2014. Last night, as I was jogging alongside my running group leader, I told her about my plans to run another 5K in September, after the one I'm signed up for in May. She told me that she thought I should be thinking about training for an autumn 10K instead. I was surprised, but she's confident that I could do it.

...and so, the adventure continues...I think I'll call my Aunt now and tell her to put the kettle on.

    Woohoo! How great to have completed your virtual walk!

    Well done for signing up for a 5k race, I can't wait to hear how you get on and a 10k for the autumn is a fantastic goal to work towards. You're such a determined person, I think you'll do brilliantly!
