10 Peaks in 10 Days Challenge: D-Day, minus 40
I am well into my training now and feel a little more confident in my quest to complete the 10 Peaks In 10 Days Challenge I have set myself. I am no longer returning from my climbs crippled with back pain, or in fear of the consequences of sitting for any longer than a minute and being unable to get out of my chair!
So, what spurs me on in this quest? Whether it’s for the view or for the challenge, climbing the mountainous peaks in the Lake District is, in my opinion, one of the best ways to experience more of this beautiful region. Then, there is the thought gnawing away in me that the lockdown has resulted in a deep deterioration in any semblance of fitness I had before lockdown, and the need to do something about it!
As part of my own training regime, I have been exploring each of the ten chosen peaks – including preferable starting points, meeting points, car parking and watering holes. From this research, I have been able to compile a guide for those wishing to follow or maybe join me on the climbs themselves. We will publish this guide shortly on this page, so please watch this space.
Over the coming weeks, we will also give details of a range of alternative ways in which you can join in with the physical challenge, but all much closer to home. So, let’s all get out there, get fitter and get fundraising for Cancer Research UK.
