In my haze of "summit fever" I somehow forgot to mention that February is Women's Heart Health Month and this exercise in self abuse is meant to educate the public that women run the same risk of contracting heart disease as men and should take similar steps and processes to protect themselves against some of the dangers. Check out womenheart for more information and resources.
UPDATE: See the yellow post-it note in the picture for my progress on climbing Sagarmatha, Chomolungma, Qomolangma, Zhumulangma or in english plain old Mt. Everest! Arrived at work today (Mon) at 6:00 AM and spent about an hour climbing the stairs. Managed to complete 25 reps this morning and an additional 5 at my first break and 10 at lunch. Feeling a little bit sore and definitely tired, however, still managed 25 more slow reps at the end of the day. Arrived early this morning (Tues) felt great and very energized. Between 6:00-7:30 I completed 25 more reps as the likes of Korn, Godsmack, Disturbed and Ozzy assaulted my ear drums.
Currently at 181 reps or an equivalent height of 15,807 (YEAH I AM OVER 1/2 WAY!) vertical feet!
