I locked in my 2014 machu Picchu trek! I am working hard to drop wieht because of this:
Day 5Hike Warmiwanusga Pass to Runquracy camp.
Warmiwanusga Pass Elevation: 13,776 feet / 4199 meters
Runquracy Camp Elevation: 12,172 feet / 3710 meters Elevation: gain 3,934 feet / loss 1,594 feet
Distance: 12 km
After hiking over the Warmiwanusga Pass we descend several thousand feet before hiking up to the ruins of Runquracay where we camp. This is a difficult day with about 4,000 feet of elevation gain.
I have a personal trainer as well as CrossFit and my home gym to supplement my hiking. I also have a weight vest for all my walking/hiking. I am once again going with Mountain Madness and this time hope no helicopters are involved! My big issue right now is some plantar faceitis I need to figure out how to rid my right foot of. Will be blogging this trek again on www.whelantrek.com! I ahve a few pieces of gear to pick up. Awaiting my gear list and travel packet now. YAY!!!!!!
