*** 19 Days 'Til My Climb ***

I re-took the assessment test for climbing The Mountain. My odds went down from 70% to 63%?! I called the guide.

She said since the actual climb is 4500' w/ a 50# pack, rest 6 hours, then 4500' w/ a 25# pack at high altitude (30% less oxygen).. my 6000' with a 35# pack isn't bad! Where she feels I'm lacking is zone 2/3/4. She says some spots will need high output for an hour or more. I haven't trained enough in that zone. She suggested changes.

My weight is down 4 more pounds. I'm psyched!

Today is a rest day. Rest days are hard. So after some chores, after lunch, I picked 3 photos and posted to Bumble (less work for guys than Tinder) and swiped for 20 minutes I am officially online dating, lol! If someone messages me, cool, otherwise I've spent enough time on that today and am focusing on tomorrow's hike.

These last few training efforts are not as fun as earlier ones—I’m tackling the hardest local trails, which are hot (100F), exposed, and not the most scenic. It’ll all be worth it on The Mountain which will be harder but with spectacular scenery and amazing obstacles like crevasses. Okay, one foot in front of the other, put on the heavy pack and go! 6.5 hours of pain ahead, but writing here won’t make it go any faster. And wouldn’t you rather pause at the summit instead of a parking lot? Look at the amazing athletes around you. Join them. Onward, ho!

Are you getting enough time at altitude? One week before I climbed Whitney I spent the weekend at Mammoth Lakes. I’m sure it helped me acclimate to the altitude since I live at sea level.

Be sure to get those rest days. Your muscles need recovery time. You’re doing great!

I'm still figuring that out! Interestingly, most climbers rely on being in great shape rather than acclimating, because even though you're climbing to 14,500 ft, you're only sleeping at 10,000 ft. The only local lodging option at 5,000+ ft opens for the season a few days after my climb--ugh! I have my kids the weekend before. A layover in Denver, maybe? lol.

I returned from my hike sneezing up a storm. Today's a true rest day, and I'm calling my trainer to make plans.

re: Dating

Wow--I like this Bumble thing. That 30 minutes of swiping led to 6 ladies messaging ME! That's different than the past. Alas, most are "How's your Sunday going?" or "Is your workweek off to a good start?" I guess the guy usually still has the onus of making the conversation interesting or personalized. I replied to 4 of 6. It was fun, but afterwards I'm thinking "Hmm.. I could have used this time to clean my car or write a friend." I guess do it when it's fun, and some matches will expire or I won't have time to write something interesting, and that's okay. (:

I guess, bundled under a blanket trying not to sneeze, I wasn't really going to clean my car anyway. wink

lmao! Touché. I'm not a timid man--I asked my last girlfriend to a dinner and movie date in real life, before she showed any romantic interest. At the same time, I'm perfectly happy being asked out by ladies. It's not about the thrill of the chase. It's about finding someone attractive, kind, loyal, affectionate, and active who I feel good around and who brings out my good side. It's a tall order, but I'm open to such women however they pop into my life. (:

Butterfly, thanks for checking in. <3

I'm at 75%. It's sick not allergies, probably 80% my endurance training and 20% the vaccine. I got my Pfizer on Thursday and then worked out for 12.5 hours on Friday. I think that workout set me up to get sick. I probably would've recovered fully except Sunday I turned around and put in 6.5 hours of training. wink

The guidelines for athletes are to train anytime it's neck and above. So, today again, I train.. even though part of me wants to stay bundled under a blanket and be 100% by tomorrow!!
