A bit blustery..
16km with Karen over the Roaches in Staffs. Very windy (would have been great for windsurfing - albeit rather cold...) but good training conditions!
I hope ‘muscle memory’ does exist!
A further 10k at the gym. Flab still flabbing around but the legs and muscles are recognising this sort of movement again...
in light of what’s happening in May, there’s no escaping the fact that I need to start getting into some semblance of shape. Today I made an appearance at the gym and started the journey of pounding some miles and firming up areas where gravity has taken a hold. 10k of combined rowing and X-trainer with some ab machine work too. Now recuperating and in need of a siesta....
I'm supporting our wounded. Are you with me?
We are taking on the Cumbrian Challenge - a big old day hauling ourselves 32kms, 9 peaks with a total ascent of c2000m, around the Lake District to help veterans who are trying to get their lives back on track thanks to Walking With The Wounded (WWTW). Joining us is Ollie (hence ‘Oliver’s Army’) a rescued labrador from Cyprus who’s also recovered from being shot.
Our ask is quite simple. Please dig deep and help us raise some much needed funds for our veterans. It’s our turn to look after them.
Why? WWTW supports those veterans who are struggling with their mental health, who are hard to reach, socially isolated, homeless, in police custody... men and women with little to look forward to but who want to get back into society and employment – which is at the heart of what WWTW do.
Please help our team hit our £2k target. Every £675 can enable a veteran to access 1-2-1 private mental health therapy within an average of 4 days of referral. Imagine that.
Thank you so much in advance for your support from WWTW, our Vets, Ollie and his army!
