I keep getting reminder emails from Just Giving to update my story… so here’s an update.
Where has the time gone? I feel very behind in my training. Have a few good long walks planned, but it never feels enough.
“Depending on where your training is starting from, you will need to have a mix of cardio. pushing your lactic threshold higher so you can perform at higher heart rates for longer. You will need to come with excellent strength and conditioning. The two key elements you need to consider our strength and endurance. Low oxygen environments find weakness in the body so you need to develop a strength and conditioning program that builds slowly. We can help you develop a program to help you. On the route we use into Mera Peak there are a lot of up and down before reaching Khote, so the first 6 days have a lot of excellent acclimatization but lots of steps up and down through the forest trails.”
I’m not trekking with these guys but this, as an sexagenarian, I find pretty scary.
