Narrative: (Duration – 75:00 mins) →  My Nike Link
So here I am at the end of Phase 2 – Mount Everest Challenge.  I completed this challenge in 41 days, but really could be done probably a week or more earlier.  I had to stop for really a full week due to a very bad cold and then I pulled back 3 days (see below) just before the summit.  At any rate I summited today.  Specifics: Did my calisthenics movements in mixtures of 30+30 and other combinations.  It took me 75mins to complete, I suppose due to the number of reps, plus I was off for a few day – bad excuse though, I should still be able to power through all of that.  Also, I think I have pretty good core, but situps still kick my ass, regardless.  The final climb was actually pretty cool.  I started at 4.0 @ 8.0° incline; after  5 mins,  I increased the incline to 13.0° and kept the pace at 4.0. At 15mins I increased the incline to 15.0° and kept the pace to 4.0 all the way to 30th minute.  I did increase the pace a bit towards the end, but not much.  I finished up the challenge with Jason Derulo and Super Twerk – awesome challenge; spiritually energies to the victims of the recent earthquake in Nepal.  I will start my next challenge on the 15th. That’s it for today… Good livin’…just keep on movin’.
