Kilimanjaro training kicks up a notch this weekend. The team is traveling to Colorado to climb Mt Bierstadt, a 14,000 peak. I feel like I'm in good shape. The two things have me an itsy bitsy worried are that I just started a new cycle of chemo yesterday. This means achy and sore muscles, without climbing a mountain. And, while my hemoglobin is ok and I don't need procrit this week, it's still a little low...hovering around 10. Normal is 13-15.
But I'm doing this! It's a good test. Yikes. No problem! Yikes.
