Slow weekend

This past week has been really good. I have been working hard, but still managed to do an hour of cardio before work every day from monday to friday. And I can feel significant improvement in my stamina allready. My pulse has dropped about 15 bpm at the highest intensity level of my workout. So next week I’ll probably turn it up a notch to keep pushing myself.

I also weighed myself on tuesday and I am down 4 kilos ( or almost 9 pounds for you non-metrics out there) in february. That’s basicall half of what I gained while being down and out. So I feel really good about that, and the target is similar drop in weight through march.

Friday was really rough, and I felt dead tired, and my body was aching a bit, so I am just taking it easy this weekend to let the body recover properly. Saturday was a little better, and today I feel pretty much back to normal and ready for another hard week of cardio.

I am sorry this blog has turned into a mental health/weight loss blog instead of a climbing blog as intended. I promise to get some climbing in here as soon as the outdoor season starts. In the meantime I am determined to reach a weight, or rather a physical state where my climbing technique is the most important factor in reaching my goals. As it is now, my weight is driving me nuts because things that should be really easy are beyond me because I carry too much dead weight. And thus, this will remain a weight loss blog for a couple of months more.

Kilimanjaro has been added to my to-do list, and so I have aquired the Rosetta Stone software and set out to learn Swahili. I will let you know how that goes as well. I have also discovered that contrary to my assumptions (don’t know where I picked it up) Kilimanjaro is actually not in Kenya, but in Tanzania. Good to know.
