Thanks to the advent of technology ( Michelle's iPhone) We have visual proof as to why Ibuprofen was my best friend for the last week :)
Here is the graph of the elevation changes and distance travelled for our "leisurely walk in the woods" a.k.a. the Powell River Hike.
From sea level to 124 meters (406 feet), back to sea level.
Three times in 10 kms
I would have never even tried going if I had seen this first....
Sometimes were are asked to do hard things. Sometimes knowing what lies ahead isn't a good thing.
Sure it was hard. Sure my shin still hurts. But I accomplished something,(with a little help from my friends).Something seemingly impossible. We are all stronger than we think, sometimes.
