Three Peaks: (1474 flights, or 22,110 steps)
Once upon a time I could have done the actual Three Peaks – it would have been really hard, but not impossible. Now it’s definitely not something I could manage – my stability and mobility has noticeably improved but I still need support on the stairs so this is as close as I can get to a long hike! I’m not sure I’ll be able to do it or to finish it but I’m determined to give it a go.
As it’s been a while since I did any fundraising, I’d be appreciative of any donations to the Brain Tumour charity – the donation link will be at the end of this post.
My plan is to start this challenge at the beginning of August. I will do the 412 Scafell Pike flights from the 1st-15th, and then Snowdon, 15th – 31st and then Ben Nevis from September 1st to the 20th. Those dates might change once I realise that an average of about 30 flights of stairs a day isn’t achievable – I know nearly two months sounds like a very long time but currently I’m not moving very much at all so this will be a huge step up (haha, get it?) for me. I’ll record my progress – any chance to use Excel! – and hopefully I’ll be able to complete the challenge. If not, I might have to adjust it and just do Scafell Pike, or something like that, but hopefully, this will prove to be the right level of ambitious rather than totally ridiculous!
