My Journey to Machu Picchu
Can a fat, old bird with high blood pressure, a heart condition and a fear of heights hike The Inca Trail?

I don't know but I'm about to find out!   The first thing to address though is WHY
Week 21 - Jebel Musa
Written by Tina Sibley in May 2019
This was the BIG ONE! The hike up Jebel Musa - the mountain on the opposite side of the Gibraltar Straits. I've been working towards this milestone for the last 7 weeks and thinking about it both excited and terrified me!

I also conquered the Med Steps 3 times in one day. And went sailing - not related to fitness but was fun.

It was my birthday this week so it was a wonderful week!
Week 20 - Getting Stronger
Written by Tina Sibley in May 2019
What a great week! I had visitors again, so it was out of my routine, but I got lots of walking in and I felt great.
Week 19 - Back on Top!
Written by Tina Sibley in May 2019
After a weekend of pretty much complete rest, I was feeling much better at the start of this week. My determination came back and I recognised that, while I may not be where I hoped to be by now, I've still actually come a long way.
The Jebel Musa hike is starting to loom, which is both exciting me and terrifying me at the same time!
Week 18 - Frustration!
Written by Tina Sibley in May 2019
Aaargh! I recognised that I started to go downhill while I was out Sunday evening and during the night, I started showing the symptoms of a cold! Blocked nose and couldn't breathe, coughing and didn't get much sleep.
So I felt pretty rubbish. Massively frustrating, when I am trying so hard to keep on improving my fitness levels. 
Week 17 - Bad Start, Great Finish!
Written by Tina Sibley in May 2019
I was on a high after the great previous week and especially since my hike up Valdevaqueros on Saturday and my great time up Alcaidesa hill on Sunday.
Then life got in the way!! But I recovered by the end of the week for some more great hiking. 
Week 16 - Ramping Up
Written by Tina Sibley in April 2019
A GREAT WEEK!

The hike in Chefchaouen has finally got my head into where it needs to do and determined to do this.  
Week 15 - Chefchaouen
Written by Tina Sibley in April 2019
This is where things really started to get serious!
This weekend featured a trip to Chefchaouen and a hike to the Akchour falls - this really made me realise that I've been playing with my preparation so far and not taking it as seriously as I needed.  
Week 14 - Visitors 
Written by Tina Sibley in April 2019
My routine was thrown this week as I had a friend come to stay for 10 days. However, it was so nice to break from my routine and go and do some tourist things. 
Week 13 - Good News!
Written by Tina Sibley in April 2019
I received some excellent news this week! Otherwise a pretty stagnant week.
Week 12 - Back to Circuits
Written by Tina Sibley in March/April 2019
I have been really heartened since the success of doing the Med Steps last weekend. But I also realise I have to step up if I'm going to manage the physical challenge of the Inca Trail. 
Week 11 - Breakthrough!
Written by Tina Sibley in March 2019
This really was a breakthrough week for me! Both in terms of my fitness and in terms of getting over my fear of heights.
Week 10 - Heart Test time
Written by Tina Sibley in March 2019
Back to the UK later this week to get started on the heart tests! Managed much more walking this week as well. 
Week 9 - Quiet Week
Written by Tina Sibley in March 2019
Again, I didn't record things as I went, so I've taken the figures from my health app, activities from my diary and I'm writing this retrospectively.  
Week 8 - Picking Up
Written by Tina Sibley in March 2019
Again, I didn't record things as I went, so I've taken the figures from my health app, activities from my diary and I'm writing this retrospectively. 
Week 7 - Treading Water
Written by Tina Sibley in March 2019
Following last week's crash, I lost motivation and didn't record my daily activities, although I can take the figures from my health app and write retrospectively.  
Week 6 - Crashed!
Written by Tina Sibley in February 2019
Oh my! I crashed and burned this week!
  
I felt really unwell when I woke up on Monday and turned my back on all my training this week.
Week 5 - Making Progress
As a new week begins, I'm starting to feel like I'm making progress. My weight has dropped around 5lbs since I started and I'm feeling stronger. 
Week 4 - The Struggle is Real
Written by Tina Sibley in January 2019
This was a weird week! Life kind of got in the way and I got really busy - too busy to even record my efforts as I went along. It just goes to show that breaking old habits is a real struggle.
However - I'm pretty pleased overall with the way the week panned out.
Week 3 - A Fresh Start
Written by Tina Sibley in January 2019
Last week was hampered because I overdid it at the start and then crashed an burned.  This week's looking better. 
Week 2 - Getting Started
Written by Tina Sibley in January 2019
I'm sharing my preparation and thoughts - warts and all.  Good days and bad days.
Week 1 - The Decision
Written by Tina Sibley in January 2019
I can tell you I had a very hard time making this decision - and I'm still not sure I've made the right one!
