Everyone needs a little inspiration, and I try to be as inspirational as possible. Here are a few of my motivational blogs.
"So even though I have to live with the knowledge that my lungs are temperamental, it won't stop me. If anything I now have the means to really push forward, and nothing will get in my way. "
"Walking with your friends is a great activity to do, its relaxing, and social, and outdoors. What more can you want? But what about when no one is available.
I often find myself with days off and going for a wander by myself, and I know a lot of people who wouldn't do this."
"There are many benefits of walking. As I have posted about before. But there is one benefit I haven't talked about before: Charity.
On 3rd June, I completed 15 miles for Aberdeen Mountain Rescue Team."
"When I was 10, my Grandma walked Land's End to John O Groats, and wrote a book about it and I have always wanted to follow in her footsteps.
And, again, as some of you may know. I moved to Glasgow in the past 9 months, which means I'm a lot closer to my Grandma.
Since I have moved to Glasgow, my Grandma and I have been on three walks, ranging in difficulty, and distance."
"This walk has given me the real feel for long distance walking, and has shown me that you need a lot of mental will power to continue. Its a good thing that I'm a determined soul, otherwise I wouldn't have made it past the first day. "
"AMRT save lives daily and are on call 24/7, 365 days of the year. They are often on call to help out the Police on rescue missions, and they were even called out to help in the Floods that severely impacted Aberdeen/shire last year"
"I tried to stand up, and all of a sudden my sight went fuzzy- the way it does when I'm about to pass out- I checked my heart rate on my activity watch, 52 bpm..."
"So I'm relatively new to the long distance walking world. I've always been a walker; any time I've had off I'd be going for a stroll to grab some geocaches, aiming to be out for the whole day. But training for a long distance walk is a whole new ball game."
Being an introvert, and often having social anxiety, "new" can be hard. 6 months ago I moved to Glasgow. Everything was new, and very very scary. 6 months on and still no social life, so what better way to get one than to join a walking group?!"
"2017- New year, new me, or not so much. This year, I have decided to work on something I already love doing- walking.
This year I have decided to take part in the walk 1000 miles challenge. A challenge where- you guessed it- you walk 1000 miles in the year."
