After 10 months of specific, physical effort, I can now say my training for Manaslu is complete. Today I went on a mountain bike ride. I covered 32 (instead of the planned 48) miles in 2 hours flat. Pedestrian by road bike standards, but not bad for a mountain bike.
This evening and tomorrow will be spent finishing up the last minute details required to travel out of the country for 7 weeks. The list is indeed getting smaller and my excitement is growing with every passing minute. Until my next update...Namaste!
