    I've been gaining higher fitness this last 18 or so months; circuit training, strength work and hill 'tabbing' and have (I think) a good pair of legs and back for long distance walking. I generally tab for a least 15 miles a week from points to points, but my question is; am I ready to challenger self to take on a good, solid distance of 26.5 miles?

    I'm looking for anyone who has and does like walking / mountaineering / Armed Forces who can give me to advice.

    The route I'm looking at doing is; Wooler, Northumberland
    Walking up into The Cheviot
    Then walking across to finish at Keslo.

    Any advice would be great,

    Thanks

    Sorry, that's 'challenge myself'.

    In January I did from from dawlish to Paignton down the south west coast path (18 miles, slightly more because I didn't take the teignmouth ferry and couldn't find the path) I'm not the fittest person and took me about 8hrs station-station and it was extremely hilly. not heigh wise but the frequency of them. my tip is to travel light.
