In one week’s time I will be reclining on a deckchair on Brighton beach, glass of wine in one hand and bag of salt-and-vinegared-chips in the other. Well, that’s the plan. I will certainly be in Brighton as the hotel is booked and waiting for me. The issue of how I get to Brighton is less clear. As you know, I am aiming to walk there – but at times I’ve been wondering if I will end up doing some of the journey by car.
My feet have been in a sorry state for the past 5 weeks. Bruised toenails, aching toe joints, sore soles – all problems I’ve encountered for the first time, and all attributable to wearing shoes that were too big. Thanks to the great help I’ve had from Judith at the Hemel Betafeet clinic, I feel there’s at least a chance I’ll be able to do the whole distance – but then again, I haven’t done any exercise for 5 weeks and that’s certainly NOT recommended in the official London to Brighton training guide.
Well whether I do 1k, 10k or 100k, I will let you know all about it once it’s over. For now, I will treat you to the delightful sight of my feet, covered in Rock tape and plasters. I wonder what they will look like next Sunday?
