Can You Hear Me Now?

Saturday, July 01, 2017

Yes. Yes I can.

So I was having a conversation with my body today. Well mostly I was listening. My body said "Chill out."

It was probably right.

I've done a couple of hard hikes with weight, and yesterday was especially rough. I haven't carried that kind of weight on a hike in a while, and all day today my body reminded me of how much of a total-body exercise that is.

Sure, there is definite cardio from quick-stepping up a hill, but a weighted backpack makes it a strength training experience as well. My calves, thighs, glutes, and core all testified to that.

Loudly.

So today I listened, stretched, rested, and chilled.

Tomorrow I'll stress my body out again and see what it has to say about it.
