Lol. Thanks. Can definitely never train enough.Don.t be discouraged by this.... be inspired !!!!! Train harder !!!!!
But it was meant as a bit more of a cautionary post, as opposed to to trying discourage. I live close to Whistler and the surrounding backcountry, and in the last 20 years I've been apart of way too many rescue/missions to help people who had no idea what the mountains are all about. Crossfit has made the backcountry semi-dangerous around here. Amazing the number of people who head out, looking for an a** kicking and dont realize the mountains can always hand out more then any gym trainer, and you can't just stop when you want to.
I dont look at the pain suffered in the mountains as an a** kicking, it is simply part of being in the mountains. No more, no less. When I hear people talk about it like that is the challenge, I just get a little cautious.
