Glastonbury Festival is so much more than just standing in a field. The sheer size and circumference is unbelievable. I just read that during the height of the festival, it has the 2nd highest population in Somerset! If your fitness level is not the greatest, I would suggest getting yourself a three month pass at your local gym and befriending the elliptical trainer.
You will use muscles you didn’t even know existed just from walking through the mud to make your way around to the different stages/areas (don’t even get me started on the hike down the old rail road to get to Shangri-La). In all seriousness, I will be jumping on that trusty cross-trainer and setting all kinds of crazy inclines at intervals. I’d suggest you do the same.
Tip for the ladies – Having read this Glasto blog post, I’m also making the most of the 30 Day Squat Challenge in an effort to strengthen those leg muscles. There is nothing like the thought of those dreaded portaloo seats to spur you on!
I’ll see you on the other side!
