Training for Mt Kilimanjaro climb

It’s not just a promotional work we have to do with our charity fundraiser “Mt Kilimanjaro for Ovarian Cancer Cure”. We still have 5,896m high mount to climb!

We train 5-6 days a week. Our training include:
  • Terrain running or cycling 3 times a week;
  • Weight training twice a week;
  • “power hill walking” – 5 time a week. We load our backpacks with 25-30kg dumbbells, put on our trekking socks and boots, and we go for a power walk up a down a very steep section of Riverview St at Lane Cove as quickly as we can. We do 5 laps up and down a street each day.

I wonder what residents think of these “bushwalkers” passing their windows 10 times within an hour!
