I began following Josh’s StayFitMinute to build strength around hip replacement and an ACL tear from a skiing mishap and used it to drag those revitalized parts of a 61 year-old body to the top of the crater of Mount Kilimanjaro.
Pre-ascent training dropped 10 pounds off my frame and the climb itself caused me to lose another 10, most of which I have kept off through exercise and nutrition adjustments since my return. I am now at the weight I was as a high-school hockey player and a resting heart rate in the low 50’s. My work days are fairly intense, but the path I am on gives me the stamina to face each one with enthusiasm.
