As part of his Everest 2013 coverage Alan Arnette has been conducting interviews with some of this seasons climbers. Dawes Eddy is a tough act to follow but here is my interview:
Ring dip 3
Chest to bar 6
Lumberjack squat 9
Sandbag 200M run (40/60)
Air-dyne Sprint (30 sec)
The repetitions increase by one after each air-dyne sprint. For time.
Everest is right around the corner; it’s starting to seem real. I can see myself on the upper reaches of the mountain. And it feels good. Really good, in fact.
Thanks to Jason Antin and The Alpine Training Center for this one!

I’ve been sidelined for the past few days with a pretty bad back strain.
Note to self: Heavy deadlifts after a 13-mile run is a terrible idea.
Fortunately I’m starting to feel better and will resume training today with a light 2 hour trail run.
Trans Rhode Island is less than two months away!
