We are now getting a lot more organised for the expedition, and are feeling really strong in our training. The tyre dragging has progressed to being comfortable dragging for 7+ hours one day and doing it again, the day after, without being overly fatigued. However the problem with increased training and fitness, is that we are a bit too lean for an Antarctic expedition! The challenge now is to gain weight in the next 6 weeks, despite 20+hr training weeks. I guess that means supplementing my recently improved diet with some fattening products (need to gain fat not muscle) - so roll on the donuts and chocolate! Looking at my scales on Sunday I reckon I need to put on c5kg minumum (ie. almost 1 stone).
