Training Week 1 for Cho Oyu

Training Week 1 for Cho Oyu

This week I got my mind in gear for the climb ahead and got off the couch and out on the streets with my pack, tires, and ankle weights.  I have two 25 lb tires that I set up to drag behind me and pull my chest back as I pull up the hill (it also slows the descent).  I learned to use the tires from my good friend TA Loeffler (her site is www.taloeffler.com).  She recommended that I give it a try while training for Mera Peak last year and boy did it make a difference.

A simple 20 minute hike up Signal Hill became a 30 minute adventure.  I upped the ante a bit and made it two tires thus making my ascent time approximately 45 minutes.  The interesting thing about using two tires at the same time is that the weight of the tires compresses your lungs–I strap the ropes attached the tires over my chest like a climbing sling.  The compression on my lungs makes breathing much more difficult and has helped my lung strength already.  Another added benefit of the extra tire is an additional 500-600 calorie burn for the round trip.

In addition to the two tires, I packed a 30 lb 55L Osprey pack to simulate the load that I’ll carry up high on Cho Oyu.  I find that due to my leg strength additional weight in the backpack has little impact on my ability to summit or adding much difficulty.  I may buy an expedition style backpack and try a HEAVY day with about 60-70 lbs to see what that feels like.

Last, and certainly not least, are my ankle weights.  While training, I don’t use my double-plastic boots that I’ll be wearing on the mountain.  Those plastic boots weigh about 5 pounds each–my foot is enormous!  Climbing Mera Peak, one of my complaints was tired legs up high.  One of the main reasons for that was that I had not adequately anticipated the amount I would be wearing the plastic boots.  With a 3.5 lb difference between the plastic boots and my trekking boots, I had not prepared my legs for the repetition of lifting the extra weight for significant time and distance.  This year, I will be prepared.

Off to go get another workout in!  Check out the links and photos from this week below…

Trip Announcement! CHO OYU 2015

Deposits have been made and reality is setting in.  I’m a bit nervous, but ready to take on a challenge of this nature.  Many of you don’t know about Cho Oyu–the sixth tallest mountain on Earth.  Standing at 26,906 ft (8201m) above sea level, climbing Cho Oyu will push me past my previous altitude record of 19,849 ft (6050m), by more than a vertical mile.

Cho Oyu is on the border of Nepal and China, about 20 miles west of Mount Everest.  I will be climbing from the Chinese side (see map below).  I will fly into Kathmandu and make a several day bus ride from the city into Tibet, where we will trek into base camp.

Here is the route map for those interested.

  1. Base Camp: 18,865 ft (5750m)
  2. Camp 1: 21,000 ft. (6401m)
  3. Camp 2: 23,458 ft. (7150m)
  4. Camp 3:  24,442 ft (7450m)
  5. Summit:  26, 906 ft. (8201m)

Here are some photos from various people of Cho Oyu.  I’m really looking forward to attempting to summit a mountain of this magnitude.  This will be a training climb for Everest/Lhotse in the next couple years.

A New Challenge–A Competition For My Friends!

Last night, I officially closed in on my next challenge…a new chapter for me. Next year, I’m going to take on a challenge, previously only a dream. I’m really excited about it and I want to share the adventure with each of you.

I’m taking a BIG trip after I complete my pipeline installation next July. Departing in August, I am going to withstand extreme conditions, resurrect my training from college (“no stress or strain can erase it”), and apply all of which I will learn over the next 9 months in the journey to prepare.

It’s going to be a life altering experience and I’m looking forward to proving myself not only on the trip, but on the journey. Most of my journey will be over the next 9 months preparing. I’ll be doing some RECONDO and cutting approximately 60-75 lbs, training like many of my Crossfit friends (Brendan Mahoney, Kevin Goff, Brad Faucett and Marianne Lawson, etc–there are alot of you), learning to run like Don Fagan, Samantha McClellan, and Jeffrey McClellan, absorbing altitude and cold weather techniques from my friends TA Loeffler and Alan Arnette, and generally getting my swagger back–think July 2004.

It’s time to summon the inner beast (LC Fit, Dexter, Alec, and Candace-style). It’s been a while, but the best I felt in a long time was after an endurance challenge to Mera Peak in 2013. Last year, my follow-on trip to Bolivia was cancelled due to my eye problems and I used it to excuse getting ready for another trip.

This year, I’ll have no excuses. No medical excuses to be lazy. No more, “I’m too tired.” No more unhealthy eating habits. Time to change–a forever change, not a 1 year adjustment. I will need each of you to help me along the way. I will try to revert to my old ways and I need to be slapped in the face when that happens (yes figuratively and literally).

I will be raising money for charity and donating 100% of what is raised to helping our returning war veterans get whatever support they need. I will announce the charities after I fully review their administrative cuts as I want as much of the proceeds go to helping the cause as possible.

So now is the fun part for you. Guess what the trip is. Your clue for today is below.

People exempt from this challenge are John Howlett, my mother, my wife (I gotta get you to come with me), and potentially Betty Whalen (you might remember since I was brainstorming it before).

Eye Surgery–Changing Plans Instead of Giving Up!

Well, a fun turn of events has caused me to cancel my Bolivia expedition with International Mountain Guides next month. The eye drops I was taking to prevent my cornea from rejecting, caused my left eye to get a PSC Cataract. Since my condition is far from normal, I will be back in Atlanta for surgery all of July.

Since my vacation for the year was focused on this trip, I am working with IMG to find some other climbs later that will help me meet the same goals. I will be looking for some rope skills training and high altitude exposure like I had in Nepal last year. I will be carrying some vacation over to next year, so the plan is to do a few trips here and there and then maybe do an expedition next year when I will be in between jobs.

I can’t release any info yet, but I’m thinking of my first 8000m peak next summer/fall or if delayed a different 7000m peak in Spring 2016.

Details will follow, but wanted to update you on the happenings.

Cold is not a reason to take a day off…keep training!

Trained today in some of the coldest weather recently.  You can see we got a nice 606 calorie burn, despite the (-12ºC, or 12.2ºF for those of you in the US) pulling tires tonight up Signal Hill.  We only had time for one lap, but it felt good.  Piled on the warm clothes, left the office, and made it happen.  It was kind of fun climbing the hill in the dark, which I hadn’t done before.  Thinking of giving it a go again tomorrow AM, so I don’t have to go after work.  I want to get 5 good training days in a week, a day of yoga, and a stretching day.

While the conditions were cold and windy (I’m calculating the wind chill to be -7ºF), it made me think about Alan Arnette’s recent post about mental vs. physical toughness, when attempting Everest.  After the Air Force Academy, I always found that mind beats body almost every time.  High altitude, cold, fatigue, etc. will wear you out physically, but as long as your brain can keep you motivated and making good decisions, you can probably still top out (though this is not true of high altitude sickness–that requires you to descend if meds don’t help).  I didn’t summit Mera because I wasn’t prepared for the conditions at the top.  My pack felt heavy, my legs were exhausted, there was barely any air to breathe, my wife was sick at the bottom, the rest of the group had turned around, etc.  These things make you second guess why you’re standing on top of the mountain.  I’ll need to train this out of me for Bolivia this year.

Glad I have one trip under my belt, so I can be ready for the next.  Everest is shaping up to be a 2017 trip, due to work restraints, but we’ll see if we can squeeze it in for 2016 still.

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.

 

Training for Bolivia!

Bolivia training is off and going!  Christine and I have been in the gym and hauling tires up Signal Hill here in St. John’s.  

I’m really excited about this trip and am happy with all the gear we bought last year.  On Black Friday, I ordered all my own climbing gear to go along on the trek.  Airfare is bought and TravelEx insurance will be updated tomorrow.  I’m really lucky to have a chance to do this climb with IMG.  Very much looking forward to the thin air and the tough climbs!

                         

IMG’s webpage has a great description, “For our July and August expeditions we start with a couple nice training climbs in the Condoriri area of the Cordillera Real like Pequeño Alpamayo (17,482′). Then, we head over to Huayna Potosi (19,974′). These are excellent climbs, requiring a variety of snow and ice climbing skills. If you have the time, take advantage of your acclimatization by adding the higher and steeper Illimani (21,200′).”  Since Christine and I signed up for all 3 climbs, we have a lot to prepare for.  We need to prep TA and Alan style!

We are both eating healthy and working out.  Hoping to slim down a bit more this month so I can squeeze into the next size down where most of my winter gear works much better!  The more cardio, the better right now.  It’s important that I don’t cut much muscle as I lose, so I do need to  keep lifting to maintain my strength.

It’s time to kick some ass and take names!  Wish us luck.  Tomorrow is a climbing day again…

Update on Doolittle Raiders…Still Need 34 Congressional Reps

James Doolittle, Jimmy Doolittle, Marc A. Mitscher
Doolittle Air Raiders – FrontPageMag

We’ve made significant progress on getting Congressional Gold Medals for the Doolittle Raiders.  The Senate has enough votes to make it happen; thanks for your help with those calls. The House needs another 34 votes and this is a done deal! Many Representatives have not even heard about the bill (HR 1209), so your calls are important. Can you help make calls? If you can, I’ll give you names and numbers! One call can be all the difference for these American heroes…

Here is the list of names that have not cosponsored yet.  Notice how pathetic Congressional leadership is right now?  None of the big names are on the list yet! Can you make calls to these people?  The bill is a one-pager and easy to read.  No spending attached.
