I woke up this morning feeling just as tired as when I went to bed. I think I slept in the same postition all night so ache like I’ve not ached in a while. I really wasn’t sure how I was going to cope with the last three days, then this happened
I made it into the Nuneaton Tribune and a blooming good article it is too
Then this happened
I have my T-shirt, pedometer and sponsorship form 🙂 yes it was slightly later than Id hoped for but heck it’s understandable that sometimes things take longer to arrive. I’m quite glad i ordered my Tshirt in a larger size as in able to wear it over the top of many layers (4 in the photo and another will be added on my walk because it’s cold and I’m a wuss)
Tomorrow I am doing some of my walk in town, as I also have other commitments on a Saturday it’s not going to be until the afternoon ….. More news on that once I find out the exact time.
I am just getting ready for today’s walk, and typically the weather has taken a turn for the worse, my feet don’t like to cold too much as they become more sensitive, this is when I really do not like some of the rough paths. My coordination has depleted and so has my reflex action, I can see dangers but not react as I usually would making missing glass harder as I’m also not noticing it all before instep. Yesterday I was very lucky and missed a patch of broken bottle by about an inch!
The difference between writing before and after I’ve been out is also very noticeable, my thumbs are quicker and are able to hit the write letters on my phone.
Off I go and will update when I’m back
I ended up wanting to push myself and I succeeded and as I sit here working out the total amount of miles I’ve walked this week my feet are throbbing and I’m exhausted. As it stands I’ve currently walked 30 miles this week! Which would explain the tiredness I think. Not to mention aching in places you wouldn’t think would ache after walking.
I am glad the sun came out though it made today’s walk so much better and I’m also glad I refused two lifts dispite already doing 5 miles and carried on home on foot, there are parts of me that regret that choice lol
I did have a bit of a cry today half way through, thoughts of motherhood and how grateful I am that my children have so many opportunities open to them, something more than a lifetime spent on carrying water. I cried for the generations not able to have what I think we all take for granted.
