Readers from last year may be aware that I went up Ben Nevis in 2014. We didn’t get to the top, and It was a harrowing experience, full of pain and crying.
So naturally, I’m doing it again this year. To the top.
I am soo stupid.
Well, no, I’m not stupid; but I am worried about doing it again.
I’ve made a training plan, and am aiming to get up to walking the distance required for Ben Nevis two weeks beforehand, and then a long (but shorter) distance the week before to taper down in the run up to it.
This year there are 5 of us going. The same 4 from last year – Me, Andrew, Hux’ and Kay – additionally Alex will be joining us for the ascent. We’ll be heading up to Scotland in the last week of April, with me doing some of the driving! Exciting. Last year we went up on 01-04-14. Going at the end of the month means – hopefully – we will have better conditions and less snow.
Waaaa I’m scared
