Day 64: Up, Down, Up, Down And Up
Tangasdal to Granfjellssätern
Yet, I start early. Bad weather is expected for the afternoon. A good trail takes me out of the valley and 10 kilometers later down again into the same one. After a bit of road it's up and down over a small pass again, mostly through pine forest over dry ground. Over a wide river with an impressive foot bridge and some wetlands I tackle the last climb. It's a surprisingly rough, muddy trail, especially as I get closer to the hut. As it's only early afternoon, I don't mind the slow progress. Anyway, I am happy to spot the tiny little hut. More a shelter for emergencirs than anything else. After yesterday's long hike and today's up and down, my legs are tired.
They will have time to recover though. Tomorrow will be a late start as I have two days to cover 30 kilometers. And the 3rd day will be a zero day. Via airbnb I rented a cabin. Located on the trail and private sauna included :)
Am I becoming a couch potato? Maybe so temporarily. However, I want to give my body some easy days so I can crush the kilometers again well rested on my next leg.
