Yep, just got started about 4 or 5 days ago. No sense in getting in a hurry, right? You know, a little walking, little running, stopping to eat raspberries and blueberries along the way. Yep, ripe blueberries on July 10. Figure eating berries is all part of the outdoor experience so better practice that too.
So anyway, today I REALLY got serious about training. I am in shape. At my age ROUND constitutes a shape. Need to shed 12lbs or so. Ok, maybe a wee bit more, but let's not get carried away. Got back home and headed to the fridge and stopped myself. Nope, no beer after training. OUCH! 2 bottles of Gatorade later and I am still yearning for an Amber. Whoee, this training is tough.
Sure glad there is no ice cream in the freezer or I would be attacking that too. Golly, this training thing is a pain in the fess!
This mountain thing would be a bunch easier if I won the lottery, headed to S. America and brought back a load of Sherpas. I figure there are no regs against them in the Brooks bow only corridor.
I know a bunch of you are planning on trips this fall up to altitude. I am warning you in advance to bring extra O2 because I am going to use more than my fair share. Don't blame me if you get caught short.
Anybody want to share what your training plan is?
