4167 metres above sea level! Highest day of the trip, the day I'd been working towards for months!
It was a massive fitness achievement for me and an incredible view. I remember when my biggest fitness achievement was managing to run for 5 mins, then 15 mins, then 5k. And there was the first time I managed to touch my toes. Since then, my fitness achievements haven't felt so massive - going up weights in kettlebells, learning different punches, dashing up 15 flights of stairs with relative ease - these achievements feel smaller than those initial ones. Toubkal felt like a big deal though.
This post is full of joy.

This day of the trip was my struggle day. I think the whole group suffered mild effects of the altitude which include headaches, nausea, appetite loss, shortness of breath and trouble sleeping.

So I'm finally putting up posts about my trip to the Atlas Mountains...in a slightly different format to my usual posts. I'm basically posting my trip journal, with pictures. So there's a bit more writing and a bit more detail than usual. I'm splitting it at each day and I'm beginning in Marrakech, tired and sweaty!
