Hi

I am also a solo traveller on this trip.  Cant wait!!  Panicking a bit that i am not fit enough.  What are you all doing to prepare fitness wise?

Hi Barbarella, Jackie & I are training about 10 hours a week presently, walking & jogging mainly, with the odd bottle of red wine thrown in for good measure!! :) Looking at the itinerary we are not travelling great distances just the hours and altitude I guess will be telling on the knees, legs, lungs. Above all if your general fitness is good together with your mental strength I believe will get you to Kala Patar.  25 days to go.... Stuart

Thanks Stuart!  Have just made me feel so much better.  I am probably doing about the same but mainly walking and not to many hills.  About to try and increase and figure as you said that mental strength is probably as important.  I find it difficult to do much during my working week but am walking 12-14 miles a hit on the weekend with also the odd bottle of red wine thrown in.  Are we all flying from Heathrow, do you know?  If so would love to meet with people before flying and get to know you all...Barbs 

You will be fine!!  Re flight I guess we are all flying out from Heathrow?? So will be easy to spot with our Green Exodus bags in tow!!  Be more than happy to meet up.   Stuart

Hi! Jes and i run and walk regularly in the Peak district and have just returned from 3 weeks walking and cycling in various areas of italy austria and france although we only got to 2000m altitude. We're hoping our long distance running fitness will help us cope.
We're flying from HEathrow and will be coming down from SHeffield by train in the morning.

Hello everyone, I am also solo traveller. I will be meeting you in Nepal as I am coming from Pakistan, but returning to London afterwards. I am only average fit, but trying to improve on that by walking, running and cycling round Richmond Park, near where I live, hoping it will be enough! Looking forward to the trip and meeting you all.

Hi everyone, I am looking forward to meeting you all and will be keeping my eyes open for you at Heathrow.

I have been walking and cycling on Bodmin  moor as often as possible. Not long to wait now and I am begining to get excited. 

We're packed and ready!  I don't think we can get much more training in.  All injections done. So many decisions about what to take  - just hope we've got them right.  I'm so excited and can't wait.  See you all soon!

 

 

Hi Sue  I am very excited too and looking forward to meeting you all. I hope I have made the right decisions as to what to bring as well. See you all soon perhaps at Heathrow ?  Ali

Tick tock........not long now guys, spare bedroom looks like a bomb has gone off!!  Packing will be done Monday. 4 hours left at work :)  Jackie's birthday celebrations are starting this weekend. Whilst writing i am grinning like a cheshire cat!!! See you Monday have a great weekend.
