In training my walk today


By Scotkat


My goal is to climb Ben Nevis in July so come on my walk with me .

Enjoy the climb,

Then I did it again before I went to Blood Donors this afternoon and I gave my 46th pint.And this was national blood donors day I did not realise.

Now I shall just post photos.

I had a wonderful 8mile walk today ,and I shall share many photos later in the week with you as I am too tired to upload them tonight everyone.

Nice countryside, Scotkat. I hope that you are fitting in some hill walking as well, though. The Ben is not nearly as flat as that and you need to be used to trudging uphill as well. Good luck with the climb and I hope you manage to get some pictures.

Good luck on Ben Nevis! Wish I'd discovered climbing earlier in life - Everest would have been my goal!

Thank you Tracey.

As you all know my goal in July is to walk Ben Nevis.

So I am now on a different type of walk uphill walk every day sometimes twice and been doing this without my walking poles.So all week now I shall be using the walking poles as I am trying to beat my time on this so I can keep up with my hubby and son doing Ben Nevis as they are fast walkers.Wish me luck.

Today planning an 8mile hill walk but depends on weather been a lot of rain during the night and clouds still look rainy so it all depends on the weather today.

I dont mind getting wet but would not go if its really tipping it down.

So catch you all at night as will be out walking at some point.
