Area 1 - Physical Challenge

Choose a physical challenge which is new or which builds on an earlier achievement. The challenge could be an athletic event, a charity swim, a long distance cycle ride, a pool life-saving test or a long distance challenge hike. Indeed, it could be any event that requires the need to physically train in order to succeed. Consider a variety of activities/interests in choosing this challenge, and agree your choice with a Leader.
To complete the challenge:

Spend between four and six weeks preparing for the event, through an agreed programme of activity/training.

 

                                                           

 

 

 

Show an understanding of the importance of a sensible and appropriate diet and the need for sufficient sleep.
