climbing africas highest



okay so my once a week blogging tradition hasn't been terribly consistent of late... but it's tough out here in the blogging world. we have responsibilies beyond these pages, and with responsibilities comes winter, and with winter, comes inherent laziness.

well, not laziness as such, but who was i kidding? as if i can train NOW for something that's about 6 MONTHS away????

haven't been stationary of course, am still getting through at least one spinning class, a couple of swims, a run and strength training each week. but it's lacking in goals - and as such, not a great deal to report.

in other news - have just booked a trip for next feb to climb Africa's highest peak; Mt Kilmanjaro. it'll take six days to reach the summit, but there are glaciers there, yes, glaciers! i haven't crossed a glacier off my list yet, so am well pleased. and i'll have six days of going up up up to relish in the pleasure...

so blogging shall continue into 2009, albeit a little slower over the winter months, and will aim for every two weeks instead of the usual every week.

so stay tuned!!!

ohhhh yeah it's going to be cold, and we're going to need a fair bit of gear - some of which i already have, most of which i don't. am hearing a bit about hardcore training prep - like an hour uphill walking every day for two months?? yet to determine how i'm going to attack it; but have started running hills as a starting point...
