Marslady - unfortunately your advice came after I had applied so I'm in the 2nd starting group.
Arabica - I've got a white number, so I think thats the 2nd group off.
Training's going okay. Was going very well, but had a bit of a blip with kids being ill, dh's shifts making it hard for me to get out on serious walks. But I have done a 14 mile walk and managed to maintain my speed, averaging a little over 4mph.
Was out today in Regents Park in the cold and rain and did 10.5 miles. Must say hope its not too hot on June 18/19 as I certainly find it easier when its a bit cooler.
Arabica, are you walking with a group or on your own.
BTW the pedometer club on here want to do it as a group next year which should be a giggle. Or will I say "never again!"
