I am not a morning person. When I don't have work I get out of bed whenever I feel awake enough...which is usually late. So when my friends asked me to go on an early morning hike over the weekend, I thought I must have hit my head somewhere to have agreed on tagging along. It didn't help that I went to bed at 4 am the night before. Anyway.
I ended up joining them with the help of a miracle and we completed a very uphill 6 mile hike with no problems. It was refreshing. I have, however, been walking around the office like a penguin due to the muscle aches that followed.
