30k London Walk

Yesterday we were out as a team again to train for our 100k. We walked 3 sections of the Capital Ring which took us through Stockwell, Clapham Common, Wandsworth Common, Wimbledon Common, Richmond Park and out towards the outskirts of west London. It was a lovely day weather-wise for a change (we usually end up walking in storm conditions) and we were able to keep a good pace. 30k in 5 hours, excluding a stop for lunch in Richmond Park and a pint of cider! It was shocking to me that you can see so many wild deer so central and it does rather support Atsuko’s theory that London is more countryside-village than city…

Again, we will be walking a massive 100km in 24 hours to raise 2000 pounds for Oxfam’s climate change charity and each of us needs to reach 500 pounds of this to achieve our target.
