Through the winter I have been building up my fitness with long walks around our beautiful city. I have built up to doing 15 miles a day without the pack, in one walk a week. I have discovered some absolutely beautiful walks, and have rediscovered my love of English countryside, not that I have ever forgotten it but to set off at dawn and walk in the quiet of country lanes in summer is a real delight. Also to know that I have nothing to fear when walking alone. What a great country!

 

By way of spiritual preparation, I am learning how to say the Rosary. It's a great walking prayer and known throughout the Christian world, especially among the Roman Catholics. I am also collecting sponsors. That is one way to have people walk with me in spirit, and will be a great encouragement as I struggle through any difficult days such as in the mountains or in great heat. I am raising money for Radio Verulam, our local community radio station. I will be making a series of short programmes as I walk along: I will have a tiny little digital recorder with me! These programmes will be broadcast on Radio Verulam later this year.
