Variations on the theme
the discussion now seems to be whether or not to use any form of transport around the road sections of the walk. The sane amongst my friends suggest that road sections should be done by car, enlisting drivers and helpers to do the ferrying. The slightly mad would swap the cars for bicycles, I’m still thinking the challenge has to be all on foot.
46 miles in 24hrs remember so this means that the road sections will have to be jogged at least for the majority of the way and I’ve never been a distance runner. So I’ve started training.
Day 1: route from office is down hill towards the Tyne for 3/4 of a mile, then back, average incline : 20deg average state of legs afterwards : rubbery.
The immediate target is two of these a week.
