For mere mortals like myself, walking is as tough as it gets. In just over 24 hours, I will set off from the Ozumba Mbadiwe end of the 72km road that winds up to Epe. I had initially planned to postpone the walk because some equipment I ordered were delayed - one of the items being new walking shoes. But thinking about Walking 101 (Never do long distances in new shoes) made me re-consider.
So I'll go ahead with the 72km walk on Friday. The Mrs. got my apples and glucose to I will pack along going to work in the morning. I expect to complete the distance in about 2 and half days. Going to work usual however TGIF won't be at the Wine Bar or SS Lounge. I will be setting off after the day's hustle, with ETD as 17:00.
The key to completing this walk successfully by Sunday will be the distance am able to cover in Day 1 so I plan to hike to Ajah before 9pm then rest for the day (at home) before continuing on Saturday morning.
Not sure if I'll update this blog again before 17:00 on 28/09/12 but you can follow the walk on the hash tag #walkacross or #walkacrosspeninsula - I'll be tweeting usual @alldatjas. You can also locate me on G Map to see "where I at"...juice permitting.
