Some people may remember I’ve been wanting to walk 3 Yorkshire peaks for a while now. Look back through my earlier posts for full story but to cut it short. The man who set up the BI group I attend has said he doesn’t believe I’d manage them and last year we did a 10 mile hill walk a group of us and I was the one who struggled most with my balance and at one point very early I felt dizzy so had to sit down. Luckily the man knew I likely needed something to eat so I was ok within minutes but it was still long enough to put him off doing any more longer walks.
Now it’s clear the staff will not be planning anything like that again as there is new staff and they only want to do outing that most people would like and to be fair only half or less would want to do these walks.
So I’m not one to go off an idea easily so I’ve come up with another plan. Earlier this year one of the service users joined the man who set group up on a cycling challenge in Ibiza so I had the idea I could join him next time he walks the Yorkshire peaks. Of course I need to do a lot of training to be ready for it. I spoke to him about it this week and he said he would walk them with me if he thought I’d manage them. Though he did admit he doesn’t think I will do enough training so he may have said it to shut me up but I’m hoping by next April I will be able to join him when he walks them.
