I has a plan.......

But then, don't I always? And it usually goes arse up'rds.

I'll waffle more about that in a bit, but in the mean time I shall waffle about stuff what I have done previous.
London Marathon entered (I have just had to check emails to make sure I actually did!), only one Taekwondo grading taken - and passed thankfully, Reading Half Marathon completed in a P.B. yaaay, though I can't remember what that time is, it's on the back of the medal though so no biggy, I have recently taken up Archery at a fairly local club too which is ace as I've always wanted to do it. We somehow managed to avoid relegation to Division 2 in the Table Tennis too, which is doubley splendid.
Oh, and there was a tiny matter of walking 100km from London to Brighton in 24 hours with my dad too!
Stupidly I didn't do any blog posts for that last one there, though I wish I had done. Still, too late now really, though I suppose I could do something about it............nah, you'll just have to settle for the picture of me and pops there on my backround and trust me when I say we completed it in 23 hours and 20 mins and raised the best part of £2000 doing it, which properly staggered me I can tell you. Please read the guff there to your left about why I decided to do it, and if you want, clicky linky underneath said guff.

So, on to the aforementioned plan.
This is for next year BTW as there's not really much left of this year, aside from a TKD grading in November at which I hope to progress to Red Belt, which by the way will mean I will only have one more club grading before I can go for my Black Belt!

During a slightly beer fueled stagette night, me and father decided after much discussion:

"You want to do the walk again next year and get a better time?"
"Aye, go on then."

That we would again do the London to Brighton walk just to see if we can do it faster this time, and maybe be the first blind/guide pair to finish this time. (We were 2nd before!)
We will obvs be raising £ for Blind Vets again though we won't be pushing it down peoples throats quite so much as it is more for our own selfish reasons this time.

There is one other massive thing I have decided to do next year and that is to run the Thames Path Challenge - the 100km route - on my own. Again I will be raising £ for Blind Vets, safe to say any fund raising things I do in the future will be for Blind Vets UK
Where I will find the time to train for this I do not know as currently I can't seem to get myself out of bed in the mornings to even be on time for work let alone go for a training run too, but that's what these challengey things are all about aint they, doing something difficult?

I will hopefully pull my finger out and blog lots about the stuff above, as well as any other piffle I can think up. I am hoping to save some of mine own cash and invest in a shiny shiny drone so I can make some pretty films about it all too, I was all drooly over the GoPro Karma drone when it was announced until a week later DJI announced their new shiny, the Mavic Pro (so much want!). Whether I can save enough cash (£1000) in time to learn how to fly it and film pretty stuff before these events is a different matter. If I do manage it I will obviously try and review the thing and put it on here for you all.
There will be other stuff going on too, but those are the main focus points for me in 2017.

Thanks for reading, and good night.
