Posted (edited)

So on Saturday June 25th I'm doing the Lyke Wake Walk. https://lykewake.org/history.php

Basically a 40 mile walk across the North York moors. Big old beast of a walk, especially for a fat man with long covid!

I'll be taking photos along the way, if anyone's interested.

Im also using it as a chance to raise money for Firefly, a local charity that takes cancer patients to their hospital appointments. So feel free to throw 50p or whatever you can.

Take spare socks as sweat can cause blisters. Talc between toes can reduce blisters, and chances are if u get blisters they appear in basically the same area if Ur foot so pre plaster those areas before Ur walk

This is a week away, and the weather report suggests it will be the only day of the week the area gets rain. And it's pretty much all day. 

 

My luck.

 

On the plus side there's over a hundred quid raised up to now, so I'm happy about that. :)

ah the weather changes a lot, i would look again maybe Friday evening for a much more accurate reflection to be honest. if it is raining, take a few dry bits n bobs of clothes, especially a dry shirt or jacket and socks and itll make it a bit more enjoyable, nothing worse than wet feet

Well. This walk hasn't gone how I expected. On the way down a very steep hill

SURPRISE RABBIT TO THE HIP!

Sodding thing just jumped from nowhere as I was mid step. I slid about 20 or 30 meters down the hill, and when I got up again my knee was agony. 

I continued the walk for another couple of hours, at a very slow pace, until coming up to a stoned path that was crazy steep. I physically couldn't do it with my knee. I manged about 6km, 4 of which I hobbled. 

So, failed. 

I'm genuinely hugely disappointed. I was really looking forward to it, and I loved what I did there. But I can at least say I wasn't let down by myself, it was a freak accident that led to a (mild) injury.

😞
