I am at present training for the 65 mile non-stop London/Brighton walk in June on behalf of The BHF
I started training Jan 1 by doing 1 mile and nearly killed myself! That was 2000 steps.
Sunday, March 19th, one day after my 58th birthday, I will be attempting 52,400 steps, a distance known as a Marathon. I expect to do it in 10 hours.
Having had OHS twice and several other cardiac procedures, I thought it the least I could do to help repay a debt to the many unknown people who conspired to save my life.
As well as raising money for the BHF, I get to loose weight and become fitter and healthier as a side effect! I was 20 stones when I started my walks. Today I am sub 18 stones and hope to be about 15 stones by June.
Good trekking all and look after your heart and your heart will look after you.
