5k training to help me reach my goal
Wednesday, August 31, 2011
Depending on whose math you use, Guam has one of the tallest peaks in the world. This is entirely due to the depth of the Mariana's trench.
The highest peak on Guam is Mt Lam Lam. My goal is to be able to hike it. I've been told that parts of the climb are very difficult. It's steep and slippery. There are 10-12 foot tall jungle grasses that you have to use gloves to pull yourself up. It's a workout. So I decided to join the end of October 5 K. I will be walking the challenge, and doing the 4 week build up to the race plan. I figure at the very least it will help my endurance and help me acclimate to the tropics better.
I'm not attempting Mt Lam Lam until the rainy season is over, but the day I do try, I want to succeed without killing myself.
