Have I mentioned I'm doing the race for life to raise money for Cancer Research UK? Having lost a couple of family members to this disease, and have one currently fighting it, the kids, my sisters and I are doing the Reading one in July. Here is my fundraising page. Well mine and the kids.
Anyway, the point of this post is I started training. No I'm not running it. Pfft...me run? Not even for a bus. No, I'm walking it. 5k or 3.1 miles.
I go around the 'big block'. It curves along the main roads. From our road, into Reading Road, up to the A4, then around into Earley, to the next junction then back into Woodley and finally home. Basically turn left every time I hit a main road. The whole circuit is 2.5 miles. I got hubby to drive me around it to measure it in the car.
Walking it with J takes 40 mins cos I walking at her pace. Shall see how it goes on Mon when i do it alone. Going every other day right now. But then seeing as how the most exercise I get is walking half a mile to work... 5 miles in two sessions is pretty good. Well I think so.
Yes there will be pictures when I do it. Lots of pictures. It should be fun.
Planning on keeping up the walking even after July. Prob once or twice a week.
