This morning we realised it's exactly six months today that we will be heading off to Peru to complete the trek!  The last six months, since we started discussing it, has absolutely flown by and now the challenge that lies ahead is really starting to sink in.

Today we've been putting together our proper training programme, to start on 29th November (as some of you know Matt will be in Amsterdam for two weeks before then, training for his new job).

As we're both working full time we're unable to walk during the week until the evenings get lighter again, so we'll be combining our weekend walks with other forms of exercise such as swimming and going to the gym in the evening.  We have a couple of walking weekends away planned in April (the Lake District, Bath, Salisbury and possibly Wales), where we'll be walking around 30-40 miles each weekend.  It's going to be tough!  But at least we'll have bodies like professional athletes by the end of it.....

We're putting fundraising activities on hold until the new year, so if anybody has any ideas of how we can raise that last £900, please let us know!

Lastly, thankyou to those of you that have commented on our blog; it's really great to know that people are checking up on how we're getting on!
