A trip to the beach.
I’m taking part in the Frontline Walk - a 100km trek to commemorate the sacrifices made by those who fought for our freedom whilst helping to support the soldiers and veterans of today.
Even before I joined the British Army and left 6 years later, I always had absolute respect for the veterans of WW1 and WW2. There has always been some connection I felt. I can’t tell you what it is, just that it’s there. I will use my author and podcast platform to raise funds. I will be completing many training walks through the year and posting some great pictures on the blog below. You can follow this and see how I progress and see the amazing places I find!
The training begins... officially!So, with just over 12 weeks to go, the official training plan has begun! And, I received my new boots just in time.
The walking continues.Training is going well at the moment. Despite some rubbing from the Terrex boots, I am really enjoying the training. I am finding The Old Frontline podcast to be a fantastic companion. It really helps me understand some of what went on, and more importantly, understand how the territory was fought over. The territory that we will walk this October. You can see one of my latest walks here: https://youtu.be/vcJW6_hh3Kk. I took my YouTube viewers to the beach!
7.6 miles, 1,159 Calories & a Guinness!
8.7 miles costal walk.... with a castle. Yes, I am in Wales.
The first miles towards The Frontline Walk in 2022!
Today’s 5.3 miles.
Starting early.I was going to start walking in early 2022. After having a knee injury through running 2 months back I have decided to start walking now. There is something about working hard though the winter that calls to me. Although, today was crisp and sunny! I walked a beautiful 5.3 miles burning around 1014 kcals. I’m now celebrating with a gin 😊
The first of many miles.
The first step!
