Reading Time: 3 minutes

Week 24: a bad week wouldn’t even be close to how this week went. It was awful; no running, no cycling, and minimal walking. A real wall as far as this challenge goes.

Everything went wrong, not helped by my head being my worst enemy. As I know all too well, as soon as the head’s not right exercising is almost impossible, which the figures clearly show.

Work was too much for me and I was pretty stressed out and depressed over it all. It was also the run up to father’s day, a day I dread each year as it reminds me of dad all too much. It’s also not quite the same now that the girls aren’t here all the time. I can’t explain why that is, it just is.

All in all it was a struggle just to get up each day and it really did knock my confidence in my ability to complete this challenge. We’ll see if I can bounce back from it won’t we?

Sponsor Me Please!

Don’t forget, you can get to my fundraising page at the following location:

http://www.virginmoneygiving.com/AnotherBadIdea

The page will be live throughout my challenge this year (and a couple of months after) so please, when you can, give a few pounds to help some very worthy charities.

Why not do like my good mate Stu’s doing? He’s sponsoring me 2p a mile – which is amazingly generous, thanks Stu! You don’t have to pledge that much; 1p, 1/2p, 1/10p…it’ll all add up considering I’ll be covering at least 4012 miles this year!

Thanks. It means a lot and is very much appreciated.
