When planning your three peaks challenge (or taking on any mountain walk for that matter) ensure that you plan when you will eat your meals. It is important to leave approximately 1hr 30mins after eating until you start any exercise, so this will need to be built into your schedule. For the challenge, you will also need to consider this for the second and third mountains, which may mean you having to set an alarm clock if you intend on sleeping on the journey, to eat your food in plenty of time. It’s a good idea to arrive at your starting point a couple of hours before you intend to start the challenge. If you do this, the whole team can eat together and go over the plans one final time. This will also give you chance to check all the gear and do some stretches.
