April 22, 2013 had a great work out day. I ran 2 miles on the elliptical with an incline of 15 and a resistence of 10 with my 35 lb backpack on. Each mile was just over 10 minutes. After that I walked to 5 miles to my daughter Sophia’s game with my backpack on. After the game I went and got a much appreciated massage. I still feel behind after being sick for 2 weeks but will be cautious but keep pushing. It’s crunch time and exciting all at the same time. I am glad to say that all my other climbers are ahead of me in training and I look forward to standing on the summit with them Thursday morning about 7am on July 11.
