Week 12 – Wednesday 19th to Tuesday 25th December 2018
Although I was hoping to keep walking until I reached Weymouth on Christmas Eve, I suddenly felt drained and low after 10 weeks of non-stop travelling, so I went to family to rest until after the New Year. I was feeling too mentally worn out to plough on and needed to recharge my batteries; my rest days had been physical rest days (although I’ve found it’s easy to clock up a few miles just running errands!) but I had not switched off properly for even 1 day since I started. This journey takes a lot of organising, with route planning and finding accommodation, and I’m finding it’s often more of a strain mentally than physically.
