Cateran Yomp 2021

I'm fundraising for ABF The Soldiers' Charity

Originally planned for 6th-7th June 2020, but now postponed to June 2021 - I am (still) taking part in The Cateran Yomp. A 54-mile hike in 24 hours across rural Perthshire.

It’s going to be tough but it will raise vital funds for ABF The Soldiers’ Charity, the Army's National Charity, providing a lifetime of support to soldiers, veterans and their immediate families.

Please give generously, and thank you for your support!

Physical fitness and mental health

Both go hand in hand according to common wisdom. And both are a key motivator for me to participate in the Yomp - as well as the fund-raising benefit for the Soldiers Charity of course.
My weight has dropped from 108.5kg to 100kg so far. A good start.
The mental health aspect is a bigger challenge, but one I am determined to focus on for the benefit of family friends and yours truly. 

Training - 2 weeks to go

Training this time around has consisted mostly of dog walking - much to the annoyance of Mack & Cassie, especially the many climbs of Gardiner Street in Glasgow. 
A proper training walk yesterday started with a climb up Conic Hill from Balmaha to get spectacular views of Loch Lomond. Then a 21-mile trek back to Milgavie. Tough but manageable.
