In April 2010, Alex and I (and my dog) undertook an epic adventure to walk the Offa’s Dyke National Trail in aid of MS Society. This is my account of Day 7 walking from Pool Quay to Brompton Crossroads on 11th April 2010 (15 miles).
I have never walked more than two days in a row, and the biggest non-physical problem I can see is staying motivated.
Like it or not we will ache, we will have blisters, we will be tired, we will sometimes be miserable – but if we stay motivated then we can still keep going!
There are four key ways I think we can stay motivated (and you can help with at least three of them).
Next year my dog and I are going to walk Offa’s Dyke to raise money for The Multiple Sclerosis Society (MS) – all 177 miles….. phew, there I said it.
This will be a massive physical challenge for me – 12 days walking carrying full kit and camping every night!
I committed to this plan about week ago on twitter (view the tweet), but it has been an idea building for quite a few years.
