"This morning I should have been setting out on my 22nd Full Walk the Wight, unfortunately current circumstances mean that this is not possible this year.

"Instead, I set myself the challenge to walk the Full Walk the Wight course five times, over the period from my birthday on 29 March, until 9 May.

"I completed my challenge yesterday (Saturday) with an extra 4,000 steps for good measure! This distance has been achieved by a lot of walking up and down stairs and round the house, and also the current permitted daily exercise slot. I have enjoyed every step.

"My lovely niece Emma and my very special father-in-law Alec passed away at the hospice during the last year and their courage has been my inspiration."
