        Im hoping to do the Paras 10 (10 miles over hills in 1hr.50m/35lbs kit)and the fan dance next yr for charity, its a good motivator.

        Been tabbing 3 weeks, now up to 5 miles, 40lbs kit in 51 minutes, not bad for someone in their mid 40s. But I do swim and do martial arts so thats kept me at a reasonable fitness level.

        Joined a hiking group want to bring my map reading skills up to scratch.

        If all goes well Id love to have a crack at the long drag for charity 40 miles, 55lbs kit plus metal pipe to simulate a rifle in 20 hours.

        ....But one step at a time.

        Not bad for someone who had to give up all physical activity for a few yrs cause of a debilitating illness and got exhausted after walking 200 yards. Makes me appreciate the freedom to do this stuff so much.

                For a Welsh name it was a good attempt.

                    Jeez, Mertyr! Avoid Avoid Avoid!
                    'He died who loved to live,' they'll say,
                    'Unselfishly so we might have today!'
                    Like hell! He fought because he had to fight;
                    He died that's all. It was his unlucky night.
