One man from Warwickshire had a crazy idea that sprouted out of thin air…

Stuart Kettel from Balsall Common, West Midlands decided to embark on a mission to push a Brussels sprout up Mount Snowdon using only his nose!

He trained for this challenge by pushing a sprout around his garden with nothing but his snout!

Is he sprout of control…..!?

He didn’t just hurt his nose though – he injured his arms, legs, knees, feet and neck in his efforts to push a sprout up to the summit of Mount Snowdon.

He might be mad, although he succeeded and reached the peak of 1,085m in just 3 days! His aim was to raise a total of £5000 for Macmillan Cancer Support and is still counting his pennies raised for the charity.

So what’s the lesson for us this week?

Well apart from the obvious – that practice, with some constructive feedback from a great ‘sprouting’ coach or mentor, makes perfect – setting goals that stretch us outside our comfort zone is the only way we’ll get to the top of that mountain!

Have a great week – and keep FIT!
