#walkacrosslagos...The Build Up

One of the most important thing to focus and build on when planning long distance walks is one's fitness level in order to sustain endurance. I had started intense preparation for #walkacrosslagos in the month of November mostly cardios. I have also manage to squeeze in a couple of medium distance walks (13km) during the weekends.

Also in November, I received the gears I'd order to aid treks. These include Karrimor walking shoes, power bank to juice up my phone, etc. Starting to get more professional at this, right?

Then yesterday (Sunday), the Mrs and I took a drive down to Badagry to case out the first and most critical half of the walk trail. We left very early in the morning, the journey appeared endless. I had been to Badagry and Seme a few times but this time I felt a sense of "fear" (not sure if that's the right word) but I was definitely apprehensive as we just keep driving.

On the way back, we stopped over at Agbara and Festac Town to case out overnight rest stops for Days 0, 1 and 2. I expect to get to Victoria Island and possible Lekki by Day 3 to familiar territory.

So, just one week to go now...I think am getting in the zone.


Finally retired my old trainers this month...

New gear and gizmos

Building endurance...most times I jog in the evenings when I get home
