- Planned my next training walk for Friday 17th February. Ten and a half miles up to Swithland Reservoir, across towards Woodhouse, down through Swithland Woods, across Bradgate Park, round Cropston Reservoir and home. Last time I did just short of eight miles in 3 hours exactly, so I'm aiming for around 4 1/2 hours, with a reasonable pace.
- Booked most of the accommodation for the trip. It has amazed me how many places will take a booking but do not want any payment until you arrive. Perhaps it's a northern thing? Anyway, only got a couple of stops left to book for. It feels like it's all starting to come together.
- Need some new boots. Found a hole in my current pair the other day after my last training walk. They are quite old now though and have seen me through several walks, so it's about time I suppose.
Anyway, keep checking back and see how I'm doing. I'll post again after my training walk on Friday and I'll include some pics. Thanks again to everyone supporting me.
