10 Million and Counting
In July 2005 I blew the calf muscle in my leg. OMG that hurt like nothing before. I was unable to walk for 3 months and then on the 21st November 2005 I started building it back up, step by slow step. 3 years later, I have just completed the 10 million steps mark, including walking the equivalent of Land’s End to John O’Groats on consecutive days (1000 miles). 10 million steps is over 4,000 miles or the equivalent of walking from Warrington to China!
What’s next? In the long term, keep on going to 25 million steps or 10,000 miles (‘Round the World – GPS/Land’). In the short term extend my training route to Lancaster and walk/run there and back in one hit, no sleep and over 100 miles. It’s likely I will link this to my business plan to "support 20 charities with £20 million over 20 years".
