I booked my husband and I a trip overseas.
The country is known for fjords, kayaking, hiking, rafting and gorgeous scenery. Needless to say, you need to be active in order to get the most out of your trip. All the best hikes of the country are at least 5 miles long. There is one that takes around 12 hours to complete if you are fit. You need to climb up mountains, scale along rocks and then you get to a breathtaking sight. There is no driving route to cut time either. You have to do it all on your own. My husband and I aren’t exactly fit. I don’t want to fly to the country, spend the money and not see everything. I have convinced my husband we have to get in shae for this trip. Right now we take a semi private fitness training session at the local gym three days a week. The fitness expert is getting our muscles ready to hike. We apparently need to cut weight around our middle and ton our legs and arms. Right now the two of us walk on the treadmill, use the elliptical, sit down on the bike and do low weight and high repetition lifting. I am really happy that I don’t leave the gym super sore and tired. Right now I just feel a slight twinge and fatigue. I know the fitness expert is pacing us and going to up the intensity. I need stamina more than anything else. I can’t expect to achieve that in a month. That is why I gave our fitness expert plenty of time to get us into shape for our big hiking trip.
