Our First Training Walk: Richmond Park
The team did our first (relatively leisurely) training walk today for Trailwalker 2011 - the terrifying event we've signed up for in July to raise money for Oxfam and the Gurkha Welfare Trust.
We decided to take Trailwalker's advice to start training for the event early and slowly so, with six months to go before the event itself, the team met for the first time for a three hour stroll through Richmond Park. The trains were down so getting to the park on our bikes from various parts of London made it a more energetic day than planned for many of the team.
We finished the walk getting a late lunch in the pub (which I hope will be a recurrent theme of our training) and discussing our training and fundraising plan for the next six months. All very exciting!
