The BI group I go to is planning hill walks to build up to walking 3 Yorkshire peaks. My idea and few others keen to walk the 3 peaks. We would jump straight in to walk them straight away but as I would like the man who runs group to join in as it’s through him not thinking I would manage them I want to try to walk them to prove him wrong😂. Actually admitted I probably was a bit over keen to try without thinking how I’d manage as the staff are now being more cautious about the walks.
We did a 5 mile hill walk last month where 2 people didn’t manage the full 5 mile and another 1 or 2 struggled so it did prove not everyone finds walking easy. I’d assumed everyone would be fine.
Next month we have a 10 mile hill walk at hope valley I think everyone should be ok with this as only people who managed 5 mile easy enough are doing it. I’m expecting to be fine but it will be a sort of easy test to see how I am in different situations as I’m going to be up earlier than normal need to be getting train at time that is earliest I’m normally ever up. Then not normally going up many hills and my balance not great tho can normally stay upright. This is like the first and easiest test. Well I’ve got to manage this or I’ve no chance managing 3 peaks. Will be interesting to see how I get on and when I start finding it tough. My guess is probably 15 near end and 20 mile.
