I have been thinking about limitations lately. What we think we are capable of and what our bodies actually are capable of are two very different things!
After a week in Germany, few weeks in Portugal - our amazing acroyoga festival and a day in London, I finally got back home and I have some time to share my experiences.
I went to Germany in the end of September to visit a friend, we ended up going for a 2-day hike in Austria which was much more than just a walk for me.
We started from Ranalt, which is around 1400meters above sea level, from where we had long and slow walk up to Nürnbergen Hütte (2297m) where we spent our night, the next day we started early, waking up at 6AM and starting our walk around 7.30 with special equipment for snow and ice. It was pretty heavy to get up there to 3418meters but it was worth every step and sweat drop!
My phisical conditions were okay, I train a loooot. Still, my body is not used with this kind of things as in Estonia our highest point is 318meters. The hardest for me was the altitude. I felt loads of changes in my body because of changes in the air pressure, the needs to eat and drink all the time and also adapting with just the walking part. Its like a meditation to go up there, mostly not talking, walking for hours - SO GREAT but also hard!
Going up there, breathing the freedom, stepping out of the comfort zone and doing something I thought my body is not able to, gives amazing energy overload. This feeling is something uncomparable!
I think it changes something inside us, it gives us something and teaches us too - why, otherwise, all the people go there..
