turning the pain corner

Yesterday 5th run since I started training again.

Start in the wildlife park at the gate, round the board walk, cross the road, onto the squirrel trail, down to the teifi, along the teifi, swim across the river and back, up the 100 steps, upto fforest, down the squirrel trail and back round the board walk.

35 minutes 26 seconds.

Today6th run. Spiked trainers. Same route, the boardwalk was like running on ice. It was hard to even get propulsion in some places. No swim as the river raged, ruben on my heels 31 minutes 50 seconds. Near best time.

Legs numb from stingers and barmbles.

Coffee at fforest as a reward.

Packing Light

Packing my bags is one thing I have done many times... For a single destination it's easy. Open bag, throw in clothes, throw in cameras and a little more, zip bag closed... leave... done. So when howies asked me to travel out to Hong Kong to visit their denim factory, by train. The whole packing thing just got a little bit more complicated...

8000 miles, 17 days, 8 trains, 2 continents, 9 time zones, 9 cities, rain, snow, -20c, +20c, cities, desert, mountains, hotels, bunks and one great wall. It's going to be quite an adventure!

It all begins tomorrow, first leg; Wales to London, where somewhere buried under 6 inches of snow is my passport (slightly important) with 5 shiny new visas. After that it's Paris-Brussles-Cologne and Warsaw, where I make my first stop. 

Will I make it? will I even make it to London to collect my passport? 

I'll keep you posted.
