These last few weeks I have started to climb hills again. The first section of the LEJOG walk is along the South West coastal path and it is going to be tough going. As one of our daughter’s said “It is like a big dipper!”. Practising hills is going to be a must.

Practising though is one thing. Once the real adventure begins (and it is not too far off now) there will not be the option of doing just 9.3 miles with 3 hills (The amount I walked yesterday). I will have to keep going on to the end of the allotted amount. Even dress rehearsal’s are not the same as the real thing!

The photo included is similar to the one shown in the York Press. 1280 miles contains a lot of 9.3 mile sections!

  1. Bless you Nancy, and John. What a wonderful adventure you are going to have. Are you going to be keeping us updated with your progress?

  2. Hi John and Nancy, what a fabulous thing to do!! To encourage you –

    For the duration of your walk I will make available copies of my book ‘On Foot from Coast to Coast:The North of England Way’ (as featured in your Tales of Fly on the Rucksacks) for £6.50 to include p@p in the UK (normal rrp £9.99) and all money received will go to your Christian Aid fund raising. Purchasers just need to phone me on 01904 488455 or send me an email and quote LEJOG!

    Maybe when you get to Yorkshire I and some friends can join/meet you for a section of the walk?

    I used to live 5 miles from Land’s End (St Just) and it is wonderful walking to start with. Look forward to seeing your route (north or south coast path?).

    All the best for your walk.
