My lovely daughter walked for charity last year and I was so proud of her (secretly regretting not doing it with her). This year, the same walk is on offer at, thankfully, at a much cooler time of year so we are both walking “The Bloody Long Walk” in early August:
Today, as part of our prep we did a fairly bloody long walk, from Brighton to Redcliffe and back again to see how far it is (apparently about 26km according to Google).
I returned to an Origami master – Akira Yoshizawa – his little person, made from the frog base is genius – spirit of the subject, glorious simplicity and I managed to fold it in my state after today’s test walk.
I am tired, most of my lower body is now seizing and complaining but we made it in good time and fairly good shape – the actual BLW is 35km, so I reckon we can survive another 9km and make it without too much damage.
Consider supporting the cause – it is a charity walk and an interesting personal challenge – folding while walking might be a challenge also.
