It's been a while since my last post, mainly because I've had nothing to report. I knew the VLM would affect my right leg and I'm taking the recovery slowly. The thing is my mind is restless now, I've got used to the endorphins and the stolen hour for myself. I've managed the odd gym session but it's not the same and I have less opportunity to train as it means driving there and not trotting out of the door on a whim.
But less of me prattling on feeling sorry for myself, I've got some good news. With the incredible help from my lovely friends on Twitter and the help and support of my friends and family the fund total stands at £2,173.22. WOW!!! I'm so grateful to each and every one of you. It means a lot to be able to raise so much for Barnardos. This will enable them to continue their essential work with vulnerable children and their families. The total breaks down to on-line donations of £1,900.57. The portrait of Jonny Wilkinson painted and donated by Wendy Mallas (@Wendywitwoo) that was auctioned for £255.20 and won by Simon Cross (@Tritwins). Also personal e-Bay auctions donated to Barnardos that amounted to £16.45. So what a fantastic result. Huge eternal thanks. xxxxx
I'm so proud of what I've achieved in Joshua's name. www.joshmarathon.co.uk
The plan now is to continue with the core work to be strong for the Robin Hood Half, so tempted to beat my PB of 2.21 hehe!
Ciao for now lovelies
