Luckily at the end of the Project 65 run we get to take a ferry to France, I won't have this luxury on the 18th of July when I take part in a swim from Southsea to the Isle of Wight in support of Champion Behaviours.  So in addition to my training for the 65 mile run I have begun to increase my swimming in preparation for the 4 mile paddle across the solent.

Saturday morning saw me arrive at a lake just outside worcester resplendent in my new wetsuit.  All in all it was a revolting and deeply unpleasant experience.  Openwater swimmers must be seriously troubled to choose to do this on a regular basis.  I moaned and limped my way through 2 miserable miles before getting out (well crawling out) and shivering wildly for 2 hours.

Aside from that I had some good runs and my hamstring is nearly better, I ran the course for a new race organised in Putley by the Big Apple which was beautiful taking me down some lanes I hadn't run through before and down one arcade of apples which was so heavy with blossom and scent it was overpowering.  On sunday Merlin and I ran another favourite route in the blackcurrant fields where I took a photo of a relic of an Innocent ad campaign from a couple of years ago, so far the conditions have been so lovely it looks like it will be a bumper year for fruit (of course given the english weather there is lots of time for this to change).

My overall mileage on my runs is someway behind where I would like to be with only 4 weeks to go so I suspect it will be a long 20hours to get to france, but nobody said it would be easy.


Cosmic beautiful, Because the love of god, Flowers are beautiful, Because of love, The sky is greenery is beautiful, Because BaiYunZhi love, Earth is beautiful, Because the love of friends! My good wishes, Through the space sent to you!


The journey of life are many, have smooth also have difficulties, Every busy who are all looking forward to reap the harvest are sweet, But also have bitter. Whether officer is poor, People is rich is flemingia all difficult to buy healthy physique, So I hope you will always happy.


Very glad to see your blog, thank you share so many interesting things. Hope that in the future can see you day published more interesting!

    What am I doing ?

    On the 4th June I am taking part in a 65mile run for Project65.

    Why ?  I hadn't planned on doing any runs this year but as my mum phoned and asked me I thought I best oblige.  I feel very privileged to be able to take part in this event.  My stepfather Bill is an ex para-trooper and has not been too well recently, this event has really fired his imagination and he has already supported me by paying my entrance fee. 

    Both my parents were in the forces and my stepfather's brother was a sergeant navigator who died in the war so I am delighted to be involved in the D Day commemoration.

    "They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.At the going down of the sun and in the morning We will remember them."
