14. Diwrnod Anaf; Injury Day

14. Diwrnod Anaf; Injury Day

I sit in Hay-on-Wye with a mixture of emotions. On the one hand, pride, on the other, frustration.

Pride because my fundraising total for Pancreatic Cancer UK has now gone beyond the £1000 mark. Walking Wales only started on the 1st of June, so I’m insanely happy to have reached this milestone. It means an awful lot to me. And frustration because of the injuries to my feet and legs which are preventing me from carrying on and have forced me to take a rest day (probably two) sooner than I had intended to.

The donations and words of encouragement naturally spur me on and motivate me to get my boots on immediately and start walking again.

A few moments later though, I pause and remember that Walking Wales is a challenge, not a race. If I don’t look after myself now, I’ll never make it to the end. And that’s the moment when I banish the negative thoughts, start being kind to myself and remember what an awesome challenge this is….

  1. What an awesome thing you are doing, so many people are behind you and are in awe of this great challenge, enjoy your rest day 🙂

  2. It’s times like this I try to remember that old story about the tortoise and the hare. Trying to go too quickly too soon could burn you out before you reach your goal; slow and steady will get you to your destination.

    You’re doing brilliantly. Keep plodding on! 👍😊

  3. Your doing a wonderful thing Siriol. You should be very proud. Take care of yourself now though. Take the rest you need now and let that foot heal. X

  4. Ouch! I can’t believe you have been doing this for two weeks now. I love seeing the weird and wonderful sights you have posted. Take a good rest and look after yourself. Bon courage. X
