Today was the first day of the rest of my life (or so they say). After a few weeks of musing, I have undertook to walk the Coast to Coast walk. It's 192 miles from St Bees to Robin Hood's Bay, with the usual timescale being about 12 days, only I have opted to plan it over 10 days.
In order to actually do this walk I appreciate that it takes a massive amount of self discipline and training and today is the day it happened. Originally planning a walk from Roseberry Topping to Captain Cooks Monument (about 6 miles) I noticed it was predicted rain, not the best conditions for the first day of the rest of my life, so I picked a leisurely stroll to Yarm and back. With Nat and Dad we set off. It was the first conscious day of training for my big C2C and I learnt a few things;
To be fair though Nat and Col were pushing on and walked like veterans, both of them looking forward to the next jolly out. All aboard the walking bus!!
