My target 154 kms
All DoneWell that’s it. With the other guys we flew past the target. It’s got me going again after lockdown induced boredom...
End of week 3... musingsBear with me.... I’m thinking on this a little bit more as I’m trying to raise a little bit of money to help
Day 16Quick ride, significantly faster out than back... love a head wind!
Day 11I’d like to say that like Tiger I’ve coiled springs to bounce along on...
Day 7&8Felt a bit sore with an injury, getting old and don’t bounce so well! So I ran on Tuesday evening rather than the morning and felt okay enough to go out this morning as well. No record pace, but making all the way through to the end of the month is the gaol.
Day 8Switched to running today, down to the river and back, gentle pace, first run for a couple of months... certainly more effort and less elegant than cycling!
Day 7Rest day, marmalade made... going to switch to a 5k run tomorrow.... dodgy leg hopefully has settled down.
Day 6Lovely conditions, cold but sunny. Good ride with a mate, took a bit longer due to gassing rather than peddling hard!
Day 4/5Day 4 samey samey, legs feeling all fine, bum in good shape...
Day 3Cool, dry morning. Same route. Just easing into the regular riding again. my “seat” is now less sore! I’ll hopefully switch to a more challenging route next week and put a few more Kms on with a longer ride at the weekend!
Day 2Same ride as day 1, Innerleithen and back on the cycle path. Low cloud and cold, nice easy morning great to get that buzz before work.
I’m taking part in Move for Mercy Corps
This March marks 10 years of conflict in Syria.
I am taking on the Move for Mercy Corps 154km challenge and taking steps in solidarity with Syrian Refugees.
154km is the distance from Damascus, Syria to Za’atari Refugee Camp, Jordan, a distance most of us can only imagine travelling to find safety. But for millions of Syrians they had no other option.
More than 12 million people have been forced to flee their homes since the conflict began on 15th March 2011, with almost half seeking refuge in neighbouring countries, including Jordan.
Mercy Corps has been working with Syrian refugees since the beginning of the conflict, providing emergency assistance to meet basic needs, creating safe spaces for youth and increasing economic opportunities.
I moved from London to Scotland, it was a bit of an upheaval, even a bit stressy at times... but it was exciting and something we wanted to do...
I didn’t have to see the destruction of my neighbourhood, live with the suffocating panic that death was stalking my family, say goodbye to everything I have built up and after all that have no future I can look forward to, and I like to plan ahead.
If you are able to support me by donating, it would be really appreciated!
