Just to let you all know that I completed my 10 mile sponsored walk for PMRGCAuk this morning. The actual distance recorded on my phone was 10.8 miles, or 24,644 steps, the highest point ascended was 568 feet and it took me 3 hours and 9 minutes. Apparently I burned 604 calories, which I have spent this afternoon on a very large slice of chocolate cake at our neighbour's garden party. The walk was a personal challenge for me and I did feel every mile, particularly as my PMR and GCA were not in supporting mood today, as had kindly furnished me with a headache, backache and pain in my right leg....hey ho. However, my mind was soon diverted as the scenery in The New Forest was, as always, breathtaking and it was enjoyable and worthwhile with a great sense of achievement at the end. It is rare these days to feel that you have achieved anything, so it will definitely be a day to remember.
A glass of fizz this evening and off to the spa tomorrow with my aches and pains, so the perfect recipe for a quick recovery.
