Firstly take three people. A fit hubby (meaning as in fitness although I obviously think he is rather fit too!), a nephew and me.
Then factor in one very large mountain by the name of Snowdon. (gulp)
Subtract any fitness level at all on my behalf. (well I do sit on my bottom most of the day!)
Add an extra two miles to the base of Snowdon due to the car park being full. (not even funny as it was up hill)
And finally add in a lot of moaning! (due to steep climbs, not been able to breath,cold and snow! It even snowed at the top!)
Equals my first practice mountain completed in four and a half hours!
Trust me that is a huge achievement for me! When we do it for the three peaks challenge it needs to be completed in four hours and to be fair to hubby and nephew they would have completed it well under if they hadnt had to keep stopping for me! (yes I did feel guilty but I had to rest!)
In total we climbed to 1085m above sea level and walked with the extra walking around 12 miles!
The state of play today? My legs ache lots! But the sense of achievement is huge. I know I drove them mad with my moaning but my fitness level is shocking so it can only get better.
So am I resting today? Taking it easy? Regrettably no!! Off to climb a big hill called the Wrekin. So if you hear moaning you'll know it's only me. Wish me luck!
