I've been quiet here, but I've been still training. 

Last week and last night I tried a straight 10 miles. First time, accompanied for the first half, second time accompanied the whole way. First time, just under three hours, second time, comfortably under three hours. 

I think I'm getting a good feel for how different speeds affect me now, which is really helpful. 

I'm away over the bank holiday weekend, but am aiming at a 15 mile walk when I can next.

So the walk on Tuesday didn't happen, and I was away at a wedding yesterday, but this evening everything checked out, and I had another go. 

A similar route this time, but as I got nearly home  I thought I'd extend it a little to hit 6 miles, and then wondered how far 10km was... So I tacked on a further extension to complete that. 

And it took just seconds over one and a half hours. Quite happy with that!

Well, here we are now! A published campaign and everything!

And just in time - on Sunday night I thought I'd channel "Defying Gravity", test the limits and see what I can do. So I went for a brisk 6 mile walk around York walls. That went remarkably well, taking just over 1.5 hours, so I'm quite pleased and raring for the next go, which, weather permitting, will be tonight!
