Two weeks ago today I said I would walk an extra mile each day up to '3 Peaks Day', and then attempt to walk 3 miles in one go - one mile for each mountain. This is my way of acknowledging the tremendous effort and achievement made by Dionne and amagram, and others like them, who put their all into raising funds and helping others in various ways.
I'll be off around 10.50 by taxi to Siblyback Lake. My intention is to walk the lakes 3.5 mile (5.6k) perimeter. I admit to a touch of nerves as i may not be quite up to it and my fev1 is lower than last summer when i only just managed 3 miles on one occasion. I am hoping my many mile walks over the past 2 or 3 weeks will have done enough to keep me going. My other worry is 02. Ideally i would have it at 5 or 6lpm for this, but that would need me to complete the walk in less than 2 hours and i don't know if that will be the case. I will try 4lpm pulsed and try to keep things to a stroll. I am travelling light with just my Helios Marathon, taxi fare, phone, pulse ox and a small bottle of water. Will let you all know how i got on when i am home and recovered - fingers crossed, Parvati
