Training to climb Mt Rainier back home!

These 2 weeks were a bit of an adjustment just to get back into my regular training to climb Mt Rainier. I really enjoyed my time in Brazil and the pace of life down there!

I took 3 days off in week 10 to slowly get back into my weekly schedule, but was able to do a couple of Crossfit workouts, stair intervals and a long hike on Saturday.I was planning just to take 2 days off this week but Saturday was a long night! Catie and I went to a  Justin Timberlake concert and then we went out with a friend  we haven’t seen in a while, so a 5 hr hike plus a long night….a day off was required!

The Saturday hike was the longest we’ve done so far and we needed to take snacks, lunch and plenty of water. For the hikes we’ve done prior to this one we’ve only taken water with the exception of the 4 hr hike in week 8 when we stopped and had some Açaí!! This hike was an excellent opportunity for us to start planning and trying the actual food/snacks we will be taking when we climb Mt Rainier. RMI Expeditions offers a meal plan for the days we will be up in Mt Rainier but they don’t offer a gluten free option.
