I suppose when you get older , your rate of recovery becomes slower. I'm still having mega soreness over my two thighs ; therefore restricting me badly from walking like a normal person. I can't walk down the stairs without holding the railing and sometimes my knee just gave way - so i looked like Mr Bean !!
I really enjoyed my trip to Gap , Smangkok and Chilling. It was definitely a much easier track and condition compared the my previous climb. Still , being unfit - I ended up having cramps after finishing the trail ! It was only a daytrip climb , but I really loved the exhaustion ! At the same time , there were competitors form the Nomad Eco Xtreme race going on ! Gap and Smangkok were part of their checkpoints and we did meet up with the racers during our journey ! Well , initially my plan with Azad was to enter this race ( planned last year ) but after seeing what they had to go through.. Mak aii.. dunno which stage we would surrender !!! Imagine biking all the way up from KKB to Gap ... haiiyaa...
On our part , it was purely "santai" as we only did a day climb. Meaning just bringing our hydration packs and chocolates for the climb. No heavy burdens on one's shoulder ! And the Sunday trip from our campsite to Chilling waterfall... Haaa.. that was a treat ! I loved the water , the atmosphere and of course the company. It was pure fun and playing "slipper" racing in the river !! hahahaha.. CROCS vs ASADI challenge.... :)
Going outdoors certainly boosts one's spirit. I just love doing these activities and will keep doing it despite wifey's uneasiness about some of my plans.. hehehehe
