What a difference half an hour makes. The last time i graped the seat of my bike, my mothers heart attack from cancer happened within minuites after. I had move it about but because of the strong association with that morning would not touch the seat. I realised that in order to make a difference and complete my aims i would have no other choice.

I set it up in my rowing club Coalporters on the static trainer and cycled for half an hour. It was good after and i felt such a release. I have started putting a diary of fundraising events im attending this year, which include:

I spent half the Easter break rowing on the ferries, steadily covering my distance. I also managed to raise over £700. The running is finally improving, just in time for London. All good news as Easter was another tough first to get out the way.
