I am not sure that an apology will help Anna!
How can someone be expected to sleep under bed linen as creased as this?! #tripadvisor #firstworldproblems #fitfam #picoftheday #instapic #instafam #whatistheworldcomingto

50 miles round Yorkshire and Lancashire with the Blacko Cycling Club on a belter of a day!

I went and cycled to the seaside at Southport 😁

Longest ride post Achilles surgery and still a few more to go to my destination.

Thinking it might be time for me to make another television comeback!

First bike ride since rupturing my achilles and the first of many as I train for my Coast to Coast in a day ride.
Managed just over 20, relatively pain-free miles. Just need to add 130 more miles and several thousand feet of hills and I'll be all set for June!! #coasttocoast #fitfam #crazyfrog #cycling #lostmycalfgains #picoftheday

Bossed the cryptic crossword in The Daily Telegraph this morning!

I will be cycling across England on 24th June this year mainly for a personal challenge, which it doubtlessly will be, but also for charity.

I would normally choose a charity that would get me the most support but following the passing of my cousin Peter following a severe battle with mental illness last year, I have decided to do something for a CALM (Campaign Against Living Miserably) a charity that means something to me and a charitable group that doesn’t usually get the support it needs.

Suicide is the biggest killer among males my age yet we very rarely hear any campaigns for us to check our mental state in the same way we are told to check for lumps on our bits. Mental illnesses are no different to any other illness in that they can affect anyone and as with other illnesses are treatable but also potentially life threatening. Unfortunately, unlike other illnesses, mental illness attracts an unwarranted amount of stigma and people can often feel ashamed to feel the way they do, and as someone who has struggled with depression in the past this is something I am familiar with, as are some of my friends.

I have put a link to my JustGiving page at the end of this message but also a link to the CALM website so even if you don’t sponsor me you can have a look at what help they provide. If the information from the website just gives you an insight into how you might deal with someone not behaving how you would expect at work, home or on the street that's just as good.

Thanks for taking the time to read my message.

Only having one fully functioning leg for the last 10 weeks has given me plenty of opportunity to work on my pistol squats!
