PREPPING FOR THE KINTYRE WAY
Tomorrow morning me and my pal Annie set off to walk the first 2 sections of the Kintrye Way in one day, 26 miles.
Annie owns and runs a 12 bed private Country home in Clachan, the perfect place to base yourself if you want to do this stunning walk with some luxury and style.
Starts off at Tarbert Castle and ends up in Machrahanish.
Kintrye is one of the most stunning peninsulas in the world and I look forward to the views and the experience.
But and its a big one, my body has not been itself for the last year and I have spent the last 4 months healing it and getting it back to full power.
During this time the body felt exhausted and stiff with aches and pains everywhere, plus it felt tight like the muscles could snap and or break. As someone who is used to being super fit and active, I found this really upsetting along with debilitating.
This is very typical post menopausal women although it took a while for it to dawn on my that is what it was.
Some tell you well you are getting on a bit now, but I know you can change the body whenever you choose and discipline your cellf so I have set about it.
I feel much, much better now, there are still some twinges but nothing like what I had.
So walking 100 miles will be interesting.
The last time I did anything so arduous was 4 years ago climing volcanoes in Uganda. Boy was it hard, but felt good afterwards. I hiked the Annapurna circuit in Nepal but that was a hefty 15 years ago. Things have changed since then!
Anyway lets see.
I will keep you posted.
High fat and protein foods, want to tone up a bit and drop some belly fat.
