The good news is that I have a full year to train before my hike.
I currently do 45 minute boxing training 2-3x/week (with a 100 lb bag at Title Boxing Club).
I also do 35 – 40 mins of cardio (cross-training or hill workouts) on the elliptical cross trainer.
The treadmill hurts my knee after having surgery so I cannot run on it too frequently, but before hiking the Inca Trail last year, I did 60 mins on the max incline 2-3x/week. I plan on doing that again eventually.
As summer turns to fall here in New England, I will be doing more actual hikes too. But most of my week is spent in the city, so I wanted to make sure that I am working out in a way that is useful for the Kilimanjaro hike.
