A new challenge…

February 2011

People who read this site regularly will likely be aware of the walk I did from the north to the south of the island. From which I managed to raise a total of £1305.67 (including gift aid) via the Just Giving website, which has since been distributed to Niños del Tercer Mundo and the Rose Road Centre and is now being put to good use in support of both of their great works!

The first question I was asked after completing that walk was what next. At that time I hadn’t even thought about what next, I wasn’t even sure there would be a next time as the walk was just something I had wanted to do for my own reasons. Also at the time I got an email from our friend Geoff Holt who – to paraphrase – said to me “I bet you’ve got the bug now haven’t you”? It seems he was right. Raising the money for these extremely fantastic causes was perhaps one of the most satisfying things I have ever done.

Now I have a new plan. I’m not saying what exactly just yet for a several reasons – clearly I have to top what I did last time…

Now I’m back in training! My new project is going to be a bit more physically demanding, so I felt that this time I need some more hands on guidance. I’ve enrolled the help of Mitch who is probably the best known personal trainer on the island to help me with my training until I do this thing – most likely early next year.

Previously I prepared by getting into the gym and doing a bit of cycling, some weights and of course plenty of walking! I know that for this one that’s not enough – I need some proper targets, I’ll need pushing, and some expert advice and encouragement. There’s no doubt in my mind that Mitch is the man for the job!

The just giving page is still open – and will be revised soon. If you’d like to donate to the charities I sponsor please click on the banner below. If you’d like to find out more about Mitch and the services he offers click here to visit his website.
