It is a big stress reliever! Climb or hike to the top of a mountain and shout! I have done my first hike in Ireland. Yeah, I did it 🙂 My recovery from a car accident (2010) is moving to another level and I feel I am being myself again.
Four years ago when I went back to college I could barely walk up the stairs at DIT. When the lift was broken, some young boys from my class always helped me carry my school bag upstairs. It was a purple bag on wheels and we called it “hoover.” I am laughing now but I felt like an old woman having trouble to walk up the stairs. In 2012 I started going to gym everyday. It took me 15 minutes to get there, then I sat in the cafe area, rested, had a coffee with a friend and walked back home. For the first few weeks it was just enough exercise to do only that. Later on “coming to look at gym” changed into “coming and exercising 10 minutes in gym.”Everyone was running on the treadmill and I was only walking on it. It felt weird but I did not give up and I slowly increased the time in the gym. I also walked in swimming pool for many weeks before I started to swim a bit again. So now you can understand how much I am celebrating that I am finally able to start hiking again.
