SATURDAY FIRST OF OCT. 2016 – The first day of the ACAM GREAT LOMBOK WALK started at 5am when I started pumped and energised, reached 10km at 7am. The 20 km mark came at 9:30. After that the road, hills and increased heat, reaching 37degrees made such a hard slog. I stopped for a quick visit of 2 disabled children, brother and sister which was a good reminder of why I am doing this. I will be back to see these little lovelies and I will bring a mattress with me because now they just lay on a straw mat all day. Their minds as Sharp as a pin, they love reading😊
I had a long rest in a Baluga ( roadside shelter) to try to cool down at the 31km mark. This was my target for the day but I did another( not quickly) 1.5km before calling it a day. I have decided it’s best to start tomorrow at 4am. During my walk I was thinking a lot of a special person who is no longer with us but I am pretty sure he was with me today. Thank you Dan Quinn for guiding me today.
Thank you everyone for your prayers and best wishes today. Dirty I cannot reply to you all.
Time to sleep.
