Tire Draggin’ and Heavy Feet

Training for Illimani again today.  Weather was a bit brutal.  Cold and windy on top of Signal Hill, but we made some big improvements from last time.  We hauled up tires, backpacks, and wore ankle weights to help simulate the weight of our legs with climbing gear on and the slowness of climbing at altitude.  You can see from the Garmin page that we did about 4 miles.  It was a great day to train and glad we got up and made it happen.

Video from Climb.  Pretty out of breath!

Looking to  keep dropping weight and be ready for this climb in July.  Time is running out!  Time to get of the computer and find some healthy food for dinner.
