Hello everyone sorry I haven't blogged in a while - I have been fitting in training and practicing to every second of the day!

I have had totaled over 3000 miles in the last 3months and am feeling very fit - no injuries or colds, touch wood! I had a big day a few weeks ago in the Lakes at 123km which took me over Kirkstone pass; I also did Wrynose pass 2 times as well as Hardknott - the steepest of the lot at a 1in3 gradient - 3 times in 3 days! All these mountain passes have stood me in good stead to tackle any meager southern bumps that will block my path to John O'Groats. So psychologically I am feeling Herculean!
