Mid January update - still resting

Tuesday early stroll, 10km, light pace. Easing into a routine, not pushing yet. Wednesday morning run, 25km. Thursday afternoon session of hills rep – 45 minutes high intensity, 300m stretch at 6%. Not easy to find harder hills in Melbourne CBD. Early morning run, along the Yarra, 7km, gentle pace. Recovery session.

It's not training yet, but it feels more and more like it. Cannot wait for 1/2/12.

2 weeks to go

Waiting anxiously the commencement of the training sessions, on 1/1/12.
At the moment I am working on the logistic details of the expedition. Visa shouldn't be a problem (like it has been for Mustagata). I am fairly comfortable about my gear, although I need some additions. In particular I very happy about my new Suunto X10, which will be extreemely important for navigation in whiteout conditions. In addition, I am tossing up about getting three or four large 4 litre Russian Oxygen bottles. Haven't decided yet. Thughts anybody?
