Peak Bagging: The Hike that showed me my (current) Limits
Sunday, November 25, 2012
Today we went peak bagging, and as you can tell by the title, this hike did kick my butt.
Total peaks 2.
Total miles roundtrip 14 (not so bad just looking at the number).
Terrain mostly rocks and boulders.
First 7 miles up! 4500 ft. up!
Elevation at the top 8800 ft.
At about 8000 ft. I hit a wall, maybe the beginning of altitude sickness, maybe just exhaustion. I did bag it up both peaks, but I have to say that I had to draw on all my willpower and maybe even some of my future willpower...
It was intense!
I have glimpsed my current limit.
After I get over my current mind set, which is, that I will never hike again, I'll work out a plan to conquer this obstacle and push past it.
Yes, I am that stubborn!
Here are today's fitbit stats:
40767 steps taken today
562 floors climbed today
3182 calories burned
Didn't take a whole lot of pictures today as I had other things to worry about :)
