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.
