Over the Alps - or Not?

So I started again in March

This time I was aiming to cross over the Alps. So the exercise program I followed this time was a preprogrammed exercise - going up and down in difficulty. It starts out a gentle pace, a bit too easy for me but well I know what was to come. Slowly but surely it became more and more difficult. When I reached the peak I was sweating buckets. and if you think you stay at that level for a few seconds you are wrong it is at least 2 minutes before the program moves on. And guess what, you start the program again at that peaked level for another 2 minutes. So I am going for it determined to give in. I kept thinking this is me 'virtually' walking up the Alps tracking through the snow and blizzards up the steep slopes. Will I have the strength to keep going. At last a rest bite, the slopes are not so steep until I am going down the slopes. My face is tingling with my sweat turning into ice and I try to clear my face of this sensation. Only to realise that I haven't shaved for over a week and my beard is itching.

And to top it all, I realised when plotting my total on the map I was just outside of Stuttgart. So I still have a long way to go before reaching the Alps. ack on my exercise machine. I guess this is good training for when I finally reach the Alps proper.

Update on my effort to date

I have been running on my exercise machine 2 or 3 times a week. Each time watching an episode of a series on Netflix. I find the adventurous ones help me to push myself, the thrill of the mystery ur
