Yesterday, to raise money for the charity F.R.O.G.S (Friends of Gambian Schools) and my trip out to Bijilo in Gambia in June. There were five of us taking part in the challenge, Jenny planned our 16mile route but when we actually completed the walk we ended up walking 18 miles! Jenny used SportyPal app on her phone to analyse our walk - Our fastest leg of the lap was when we were trying to find an ice cream van... I wonder why we sped up there!
We kickstarted our day with yoghurt, granola, raspberries and almonds, fruit juice and a sneaky pain au chocolat! :)
We're still feeling pretty enthusiastic at the start of the walk. The first leg of the walk took us through Regents park, Hyde Park, Green Park and St James Park. It was absolutely glorious weather all day! Most of us managed to get some pretty serious tan marks by the end of the day!
There were so many herons in Regents park! They were amazing, you don't realise quite how big they are until you're up close to them!
I think this little sign was pretty apt in the circumstances! There wasn't a "triumphant moment" photo at the end of the walk, mainly because we were all so completely shattered that we all collapsed in Jenny's flat and was unable to move! It was tough towards the end of the walk but I definitely feel like I've achieved something! Plus, it's all in the name of chairty!
