C'mon and Join the Fun

This week my focus at the Y continues to be on upper body strength. 

Here's why. 

I think the Allalinhorn may well be the most challenging Alp I've tried to climb so far. Can I do it? Should I even try? If I do make the attempt, it only makes sense to be in the best shape possible for a soon-to-be 70-year old. 

Beginning this week, after I teach my class tonight, I will be on vacation for 2 weeks. My hope is to bag a couple of local peaks, beginning with Flat Top near Bedford, VA. The weather will be lovely -- in the 60s and 70s and sunny. I just have to keep telling myself to go slow and enjoy the exciting process of getting into shape. Patience is an essential quality for an athlete at any level. The goal is to never overdo it. Don't get greedy. Don't try to go too far or too fast. Stick with the plan. Don't let overtraining ruin your life.

C'mon along and join the fun.
