Well, Sunday seems to have worked out fine. The Fatdog completed the 7km hillwalk to Glas Maol and Creag Leacach without any signs of ill effects whatsoever and although my back threatened a few times on the descent it didn’t declare outright war. In my enthusiasm to rush up Glas Maol I had managed to leave my poles in the car which was silly as they would have helped me a lot coming down. The overtight hamstrings are still keeping the legs too rigid so I didn’t have any bounce on the descent and so ended up a bit stiff legged, but hopefully I can get that to ease up through time.
I tend to judge success on my enthusiasm to do another hill next weekend and the good news is I’m pouring over maps and books looking for another easy ascent. The bad news is I’m being dragged off to a circuit class tonight to start to seriously build up my fitness to compensate for my other deficiencies.
I weighed in last week at 13-5 (84.8kg) and am now at 13-1 (83.0kg). I am also hungry!
The Fatdog weighs in at 35kg…and is also hungry!
