    Hallo Everyone,

    As you all know I was planning to walk the coast to coast in July with the help of Tim from FFUK N sadly Tim had to pull out for personal reasons leaving me to do the full route in 14 days,
    Yestoday I was out walking Whitby to Scarborough ( about 22 or so Miles down the North east coast line )
    When I lost my footing and fall backwards onto a set of stone steps heading down a path, ( Thanks to the two students out walking who helped carry me to safety or Id be still lying there )

    I have seriously knocked my back & lower spine ( I am currently on strong pain killers and they aren't working so I will have to see my doctor ) I did manage to get into Scarborough under my own steam and return home at 1 am this Morning I fear I will not be able to carry on with the planned C2C walk without help.

    Sorry for any problems this causes to health and safety comes first

    That's a shame, mate :(

    Good thing you were helped out, tho. What did the hospital say?

    Your health and safety absolutely have to come first.

    I for one am in awe of people who set out to do such magnificient things, especially when for charity

    Keep your head up, and remember. There's always next year :)

    EDIT: Did anyone else thing it was cancelled due to Autumn?

    I got to see the Emergency Doctor who said My back wasn't bruised but feels like I have knocked my back badly (And Because I have the early stages of osteoarthritis any heavy bag could cause problems if not looked at)

    I would still like to do some kind of walk if not the Coast to coast Maybe Ill walk the 70 miles Newcastle to Carlisle in stead ?
