The east wind has been blowing furiously since Sunday night, and I can feel the effect of a lack of sleep. But this morning I decided to go for my daily training walk anyway, wind or no wind.

As I made my way up the mountain track the wind pushed me back and almost blew my breath away. Despite this I felt strong, and I decided that I would place another brick in my pack tomorrow, bringing the weight up to about 15 kg.

Are you wondering what this is about? Well, follow this blog. I’ll be explaining more in posts to come.
