2nd time lucky

In two weeks’ time the second attempt on the National 3 Peaks Challenge will be complete, one way or another. Obviously we hope to be successful this time but there are a number of factors against us. Not least of these is the fact that the year is getting on and the weather has taken a decidedly wintery turn. This could cause us a number of difficulties, from dealing with colder temperatures to likelihood of stronger winds, to fewer daylight hours. Stacey and I have a bit of experience in walking up hills and so I hope that none of these will be enough to defeat us.

My greatest concern is that I have not managed to prepare myself properly for this. I have not managed any serious training over the past three weeks as I’ve been on holiday with my family. More dedicated people than I would have made sure that they were out training regularly but the most that I managed was a few lengths of the pool.

Notwithstanding that, and other commitments such as starting a new job this week, I will be putting some miles in around East Lothian and the Scottish Borders over this weekend to try to acclimatise my lazy body to hard effort.

Stacey and I have been organising ourselves and the logistics seem to have been straightened out. All that is needed now is for us to walk up and down three mountains.
