Mt. Elbrus Preparation

On 16, Mar 2017 | No Comments | In Adventure, Training, Travels | By Alyssa

I am currently down in Jindabyne running back-to-back Aussie 10 Peaks adventures. The Mates4Mates team just completed their trip and today we’re heading back to Canberra to drop the team off and pick up the next group for the second Aussie 10 adventure.

I am now three months away from my next expedition which is to Mt. Elbrus in Russia. My preparation for this is similar to my usual training schedule, although I will be on an updated program put together by Scott Evennett. Involving pack training, running, gym sessions, calisthenics, and tyre drags.

Later this year Adventure Professionals will be running some more short adventure trips in Australia. Some in the Blue Mountains and the Grampians. I will personally be heading to Arapiles and the Blue Mountains for some rock climbing training as well.

In the coming week, I will be visiting the Gold Coast Suns team to chat around mindset and specifically about Everest and what it takes to reach the summit and I will also be giving a presentation at USQ (University of Southern Queensland.)

Aussie 10 Peaks – A Great Adventure Last Week

On 01, Nov 2016 | 2 Comments | In Adventure | By Alyssa

It’s been a busy year, hectic would best describe life since I returned from Mount Everest in June this year. I have completed two Kokoda Track crossings as a staff member including one where I carried out a Medical Evacuation on an injured veteran from a mates4mates adventure. That was a new experience for me although with Dad having been a Aero-Medical Evacuation specialist in the Army I knew I had the right advice and training to carry out the job. All went well.
