My dad does fill much better, and so we decide on another rather small hike, to keep building back those muscles and endurance. The night before this hike, I was feeling dizzy, walking a bit like a drunkard, almost losing my balance. When I wake up, and meet my dad in the living room before heading off, he asks So, are you ok?” I can only answer, “We’ll see…” (I certainly do not want to cancel this!)
Indeed, I still feel… Not so great. But, the worst is on flat or going down movement. So, as long as we go up, I am fine, and I figure that we will see when it is time to walk down…
Early start, “à la fraiche”, no one around, a hike totally off the beaten tracks. Not a huge summit, more like a “let’s start small, and build up our strength and confidence”, which seems adequate after our last aborted hike. The hike is a beautiful one though, especially at this time of year, with flowers blooming by the thousands. I make a mental note to do it again with D the following year. She will love it!
The view of the Gélas is amazing.
And, well, if you wonder, by the time we start doing some down hill walk, I have no ore signs of any dizziness. Fresh and clean air and exercise made it go away!
