Rib Tickler

Oops, something's gone wrong on Planet Dom

At the time of writing, Dom is training to climb Mount Everest. (There’ll be more about his progress in later blogs).

You could say Dom is a bit of a sports fanatic. He has to be, as training is extremely hard for this challenge of a lifetime. He rows five times a week, plays indoor hockey twice a week, has just started playing underwater hockey to help his anaerobic fitness, and tries to convince me that a weekly round of golf also helps with his training. His biggest commitment is walking five days a week, for up to two hours, carrying a 25kg rucksack.

As photos on this blog will testify, we’ve both had some fluctuating weight issues over the years, so he was tickled pink to see so much training having a positive effect on his physique.

“I’m getting so fit, I’m looking ribbed.”

“I think you mean ‘ripped’, dear” I replied.

  1. Goodspeed, Dom! With your determination and positive attitude, I know you’ll do it. I’ll be willing you along from Leicestershire 🙂
    Looking forward to more updates, Jane!
