Another Monday and another stroll in to Reading to do more shopping for bits and bobs for the walk and to have lunch with a good friend: Pret are getting some more money out of me after a break of a few months.
The 13 mile walk went well although the usual spots on my feet began to hurt again and that was with additional plasters. I think I’m just going to have to give in trying to find a way to stop that toe from hurting and just live with the fact that every day of the walk will be, to some extent, painful. Best to get used to that now I suppose?
One thing I’ve got to work harder on sorting out is my pace – it’s too fast! I’m still trying to walk at my usual pace and I know that my feet just won’t be able to keep that up all the way. We’ll see what I can do with that particular problem over the coming weeks.
