Maybe daft!

It was a lovely day today - chilly, but not too cold, so I walked down to our local veggie shop so I had the wherewithal to make a pot of soup when I got back. I felt really good and managed a respectable pace over the 3000 steps! Then I did what may be the daftest thing I've done in a while (hopefully not!). My car needs to have it's MOT and service next month, so because I was feeling so good, I booked it in at the local garage for the 10 April. Problem is, the garage is at the bottom of a really steep hill and I'll have to walk up it after I drop off my car - I've only conquered this hill once, with difficulty! Optimistic hey? Oh well, it's a challenge!

There is time for a little bit of training to get you ready. Any chance of a bus route on your path for a back up or a coffee half way? Either way if you take it at your own pace and do some training I am sure you will be fine.

Is there anywhere to tether a long rope at the top of the hill and pull yourself up?

Hahaha - I'm glad I'm not the only daft one!

You may laugh but if that's what it takes...

You might raise a smile in passers by and that's no bad thing.

Have a good Friday tomorrow.

You can take as long as you need to get up that hill. Sometimes an extra push like that is a wonderful thing.
