No matter what the distance and ignoring the physical side of things, it's good for the mental health to just be moving.

Hi Carole, after all the traumatic experiences that you have been through over the last few months, it's very uplifting to see you back on the erg. If it all seems very daunting at the moment, then keep telling yourself that ' A journey of a thousand miles, starts with the first step '. :)

Glad to hear hat things are moving in the right direction Carole. Great idea to give yourself the incentive and am sure that you will take things slowly in the 12 months you have before then.
