I know I know, a little bit dramatic, a little bit “A year to save my life” but also a little bit true….
And NO, I don’t need anyone to help to save my life so stand down all…!
Good morning friends and thanks for tuning in to another day here on the wonderful world that is Planet Magnet. Where full stops and comma’s appear at random and capital letters have a life of their own, springing up as they see fit.
But then I don’t think you guys would have it any other way would you….?
So what’s this title all about?
Well today I was supposed go to the gym to discuss my training schedule for the next four months and I was excited to say the least, unfortunately I have just received a text to say that the trainer in question has been sent home for looking a bit ill…!
Probably just as well we don’t trouble him with tasks such as training me, I need his head to be completely clear and focussed. This means the appointment will postponed until next week and I will no doubt report on it then.
Last week I popped in to see Lisa at The TFD Gym to discuss what I thought may well be the relevant subject of specific training for my walk in four months time!
I had not even considered the fact that I might need specific training for my walk until I was listening to an interview of a lady by the name of Jo Brand who is, as I write, walking something called the Trans Penine Way for a charity known as Sport Relief. She spoke of the fact that she had been training for four months in preparation for the walk as as she did, a lightbulb went on in my head.
And today here we are.
I am four months from the biggest challenge of my life. This morning I had a logistics meeting with my friend Kate and once we had gotten past the initial 30 minute catch up on whats been going on in our lives we were able to get some good points down for action over the coming week. These included working out where each leg will take me on each different day of the walk so that we might contact the local radio stations and the local papers based in these specific stopping/starting points and ask for their support and coverage. I am sure that with the correct amount of following, this will be very achievable because after all, it is a human interest slot, isn’t it?
So as today the gym appointment was cancelled I have decided to put it to good use and achieve a little logistics work of my own so we might get some more “behind the scenes” work accomplished.
With that in mind, there is no time like the present…
Stay out of the fridge.
