2020 has started with a bang for the #10nTaff team. Everyone in the team recognises that to successfully climb 10 of the highest mountains in Wales and then cycle from Brecon to Cardiff, all within 55 hours, we need to train hard. However, the pain we experience is nothing compared with what some children and families go through every day. Thankfully, the wonderful children’s hospice Tŷ Hafan is there to support them.
On Saturday 4th January, Lee, Laurence and Andrew hit the hills around Margam Park, covering 16 miles in nearly 6 hours. Despite recent wet weather, the team was lucky and enjoyed a fresh hike in the mountains overlooking Port Talbot.
On Sunday 5th January, Chris, Georgie, Paul, Paul’s daughter Meg and Georgie’s son hit the slopes of Pen-y-Fan in the Brecon Beacons in Mid Wales. The weather forecast was badly wrong with high winds and rain. The team climbed to the summit and returned to the car park in 1 hour 40 minutes. Everyone was a little cold and damp but spirits were high and the first serious training walk was complete.
As a group, we know that we have to train in all weathers. We will keep reporting on our training as we move through the winter. We all have one eye on the better Spring weather already!
