This time I’m trying to cover the distance around the equator a whole 24,901.55 miles on a stationary exercise bike.

My platform for doing this is on the Red Funnel car ferry the Red Osprey. To make matters tougher this blog restarts during one of the most challenging weeks of this year physically and emotionally.

On Monday I will say goodbye for good to my mother’s house in the town of Dorchester where I was born, we had been there for over 22 years and unfortunately where my mother and brother passed away. I also with friends from Coalporters rowing am rowing around the Isle of Wight on Wednesday. On Saturday I will also be taking part in the JP Morgan around the island sailing race.

As training goes on, I'll be updating you all to let you know how I've been getting on!
