Ten Tors Training 2019 Week 4

Dartmoor eluded the elements for as long as possible on Saturday 9th February as the 35 mile teams set foot on the moor for the first time since November. A cold, grey and windy day encouraged the teams to work together and strive to meet their check point times.

As the day progressed, check points came and went with motivation in tow.

'The first part of Saturday, our fourth walk, was extremely positive. On this training, we split into our two respective teams and fought competitively to reach our checkpoints first. This inspired us to walk efficiently and have acute awareness of where the other team was. We navigated through our route methodically. We had navigational challenges later on in the day and we will reflect on how much we have learned and aim to improve for the next training walk.'

Many lessons can be learnt when an error is made and the weather changes for the worse - Poltair participants can overcome the obstacles by strength of mind! Bring on W5!
