At a standstill

13 months to go until the big adventure! Smithy and I are still struggling with mobility problems, so the training regime hasn't yet been taken to the next level. In fact, I suffered a wee setback on Friday when some ignorant b*#*&#$ smashed into the back of my car and drove off! Leaving me gobsmacked, whiplashed and with a hole torn out of the back panel of poor little Hilda Hyundai!
Having missed the Gold Coast Half Marathon and the Bridge to Brissie fun run, we had set our sights on doing the annual Hike to Help Nepal, run by Nepal Australia Friendship Association (NAFA) and using that as our launching pad for cranking up the training. We usually miss the Hike cos we're in Nepal in October, but this year will be home...alas, no Hike is planned this year! Oh well, we'll just have to do our own private hike. Hopefully by October, we'll both be a lot fitter and stronger than we are at the moment.
