I am planning to run /walk /crawl again, this time from John O'Groats down 'South' to St Albans .......... not sure how far i will get but its one heck of a journey!

Not sure if my training regime included so many cupcakes but they do seem to be an easy routine to follow with increasing frequency!

I can now manage 1 before lunch, 2 mid afternoon and if i am really diligent i can squeeze in another after dinner!

So by my counts that is 4 reps and i am really enjoying my time following this routine!

In all honesty though .... i have been panicking a bit this week and turning to the food cupboard as my salvation! Needless to say it isnt the fuel of Athletes but i never proclaimed to be a shining example and i am nothing if not honest about things!

In the time it has taken to write this page i have excelled myself and eaten 1/2 and the proof i guess is here for you all to see. Mmmmmmmmm!

So, if you thought this blog would just be jammed packed full of training tips, info on the route and B & B's, i am sorry but its not! It will cover some of those things when i get going but for now, its a stark bleak update on how unprepared i am really feeling ahead of the big O-F-F next week.

And just in case you wondered how i plan to celebrate my departure tea with the children - i can reassure you and let you know its a full on PANCAKE PARTY - American pancakes smothered in chocolate Nutella, strawberries and bananas and as many as children, grandma, sisters and brothers, uncles and aunties can eat!

OK! Hardly the Protein shaken fuel of the hardened walker! But, that is what makes my walk all the more human!

Because if I can finish this trip ..... then anyone can!

  2. Hi Caroline,

    I'll be starting off on the same day as you, but in the opposite direction. Not sure if we'll pass en route, but best of luck!
