It's only 2 months before I leave for Kathmandu. The Final stretch. Time for some backpacktraining gradually increasing the backpack weight and what better place to do this then the Ardennes in Belgium. Not very high but nice up and down terrain with steep valleys. The valleys of the Lesse, Ourthe, Ambleve, Vesder, hide a lot of treasures and are an ideal trainingground. Meanwhile other training continues running, biking, swimming and working out in the fitness. At the same time I'm already preparing my packing list. Apart from some small items I seem to have eveything I need. Sunday I will be running the yearly local streetrace in my hometown. Great fun. Hope the weather will be good.
