After the scuba diving I signed up to do the Ciudad Perdida (Lost City) trek. It was advertised as being 50km long and four days. What a lie. It turned out to be 73km with three days of actual hiking. Being out of shape, it was brutal for me. I did however get in much better shape than I thought I could in three days.
[insert long summary here]
One thing that came out of it was realizing I could push myself into much better shape than I thought. When I got home I started running. I’m currently only able to run three miles in just over half an hour, but that’s more than I’ve been able to run without stopping in over twenty years.
