Welcome back to my last week doing my virtual walk. This will be a very short one this week with a bit more focus put into next weeks final post. This week started of poorly with the walking and I done incredibly well to turn it around. The goal over 15 weeks was to walk 696km and I am now 51 km away.
Yesterday myself and Sarah braved the elemants to go on the final walk of the week to boost my steps. I managed to lose another lb this week to bring myself within 3lbs of losing 2 stone.
Just want to thank everyone who have donated to the page so far I really appreciate it. Also huge thank you to my brother who is going to grow a tache to try raise some more awareness for the walking I have been doing. With this week completed I am now arriving into High Wycombe and I am almost there with this walk completed in exactly 15 weeks just like I set my goal so I am absolutely over the moon with this.
