With only three weeks to go, the pressure on the Trailwalking team is continuing to build!
Yesterday saw Dave Norcott take the opportunity of an early appointment at Southampton General to walk home to Sutton Scotney along the Itchen Way and Pilgrims Way – just a touch under 25 miles.
Although it was a lovely summer’s day the paths were very overgrown with nettles; not a great situation when wearing thin running shorts as you can see Dave’s expression in the picture! Dave completed this walk in around 7 hours, which included three 15 minute breaks – well on target for the sub-24 hour time his team would like to achieve this year for the 100 km distance.
Although somewhat sore today, his feet are fine with no blisters – Dave puts this down to pre-taping his feet before big walks, a tip he picked up from a fell-running blog before last year’s event.
