Not done anything like this before, but I'm signed up and am in training for the Moonwalk in May. It's 26.2 miles I think and powerwalking. I am so unfit and am really struggling with the simple 4 mile power walks. Good luck with the training x
THe past couple of years, I've done in it in about 3 hours 40 mins. There was over 12000 at Edinburgh for it last year, and its a fab night. The atmosphere is amazing I've always found the last mile the hardest, mainly because it's pavement walking and all those on and off the pavements can really begin to hurt lol
Walk The Walk ( who organise and run the Moonwalks) have some good training tips, Walk the Walk - charity raising money and awareness for vital breast cancer causes : Training , and they also send you a training schedule with your fundraising pack
im hoping my fitness levels are up to this, they should be as i workout 6 days a week, for up to 4 hours a time.
but even if i struggle i wont give up, if i can run 3 miles when walking is agony (i had bruised all my lower back, and could barely move) i can do this!
its in memory of my friend aimee, the thought of her will power me on, no matter what
I've just signed up for the Moon Walk in Edinburgh. Doing the full 26 miles (I hope!).
Started my training today. Did what the GPS tracker on my phone thought was about 3 miles. 19 weeks to go and have no idea how am going to manage it. Determind tho as I have quite a few friends and family who think I can't/won't do it. Started a blog, which I'm going to try and add to every day to keep myself going on the bad days.
