Extreme Low Wage High Mileage Daily Trudge Training!

Post by JM21760 » Sat Jan 28, 2006 2:23 am

2 new titanium hips. Unable to perform old good paying job. New Wal Mart opening in the neighborhood? Priceless! Not! 50% less in pay, but I do 10 miles a day with a dust mop. No one bothers me, which is a good thing for them. I'm getting in shape, slowly, and am looking at an easy peak or two this summer, Dana perhaps? How's this for a twisted new sport? "Mart Schweepin'"! Look out X Games! I'm goin' for the Gold, (plated). I'm gonna call the IOC on this one. I'm hoping this fits the category, for other High Sierra Sports not listed. 4750' should be high enough right? I can see 9000' peaks from my living room!

You can drive to some high peaks :unibrow:

This was only about 200' el gain to reach Wheeler (11,661'). I think my 4Runner could have made this one. :nod:

10 miles a day is good!
