  1. The Journey of 1000 miles begins with one step.   Lao Tzu

    I had to google him to see who Lao Tzu was.  Basically a Chinese Philosopher from the 6th Century.

    Anyway I'm not aiming at 1000 miles just 10000 steps a day  4 days per week throughout March.

    Today is the first day of my Steps Challenge and as I write this my total is 11423 steps after doing 2 walks, one this morning and one this afternoon. I don't feel too bad and didn't fall asleep this afternoon so I'm pleased about that.

    thats me checking my fitbit to see if I can head back home. I've had lots of support and have almost reached the target of £500 already thanks to all your generous support. Thankyou everyone who has donated in such difficult times I'm so pleased to be able to help  Different Strokes support younger Stroke Survivors.

  2. MARCH ON is the name of Different Strokes fundraising challenge for March this year which I have finally plucked up courage to take part in !  Different Strokes helps Younger Stroke Survivors and I've wanted to do something for them for a while, as its now 13 years since I had a stroke and they were a great help to me in the early days of recovery.

    So  I am going to try and walk 10000 steps, 4 and if possible 5 times a week. Thats about  3.5  miles a day. It doesn't sound like much but I havn't been able to do this yet as I still have difficulty walking, so for me it will definatly be challenging.

    I've set up a page with JustGiving if you'd like to help me support them you can sponsor me here.
