What is My Peak Challenge?
MPC is to challenge yourself to do something outwith your comfort zone. This can be anything and doesn’t need to be climbing a mountain or anything fitness related at all. You could do some knitting, paint a picture, go on a journey. It’s all about doing something that you’ve always wanted to.
So my main challenges this year are:
|My challenges||My progress|
||1. ✔ 😊 May 2016 – Troon 10k, South Ayrshire. Time: 1:08:00
2. ✔ 😊 June 2016 – Roon the Toon 10k in Kilmarnock, East Ayrshire. Time: 1:07:52
3. ✔ 😊 September 2016 – Isle of Cumbrae 16k, North Ayrshire. Time: 1:49:18
4. ✔ 😊 October 2016 – Great Scottish Run 10k, Glasgow. Time: 1:05:11

Currently working on advanced course
As well as improving my lifestyle, I was also contributing to the charity Bloodwise, the new name for Leukaemia and Lymphoma research, with purchasing the supporter pack and joining the online MPC prep program.
You might have already read about my failed attempt on hiking up Ben Lomond a few years ago … my peak challenge was a huge call out for me to bag my first Munro and change my life.
MPC prep program and peakers
Joining the online MPC prep program, which includes video exercises for all abilities, a healthy eating plan and access to a private Facebook support group, has really encouraged me to keep going with this. The Facebook group has over 3000 members from all over the world and increasing.
We’re all known as peakers!
Each and every one of us has an important goal and we’re determined to reach our peak. We’re also helping each other reach that goal with words of encouragement and support.
Here’s to reaching to my peak!
Thanks for reading.
