3 years ago i was backpacking my way up a big hill in Pennsylvania's Endless Mountains huffing and puffing, legs sore having to stop every 50 feet to catch my breath.

This weekend the same hills seemed like flat ground to me. I couldn't feel my heart rate or breathing really even increase and my legs felt fantastic.

So far whats come out of the black box has been nothing but good :-)

Excellent! I've noticed the same thing on tough hikes. I find myself waiting for others a lot more often, I don't gas out as easy anymore either. Keep it up!!

I just completed what was reputed to be a fairly strenuous hike with my son's Boy Scout Troop.

It was a cinch; more like a CF Rest Day than a CF WOD day. This is really good stuff.

Very cool hike! I'm doing a similar one myself on Tuesday. Pyramid Peak in Desolation wilderness.
4K feet climbing, 10 miles rnd trip. Going solo unless I can find anyone else up to the challenge.
Any takers in the Sac/Tahoe area??

Jeff,

I lived in the bay area back in the late '80's. I wished I had done more hiking. The Sierras are awesome. Have fun on the hike!

To keep a post going that i started.....

Today I dragged about 500 pounds of useless crap out of my apartment into the dumpster without even a flinch of difficulty. Funny the looks you get when your carrying most of a desk over your head through the parking lot. I remember 8 years ago i was out of breath just trying to get a small 27 inch TV in the door.

Kevin,

I've had that experience, too. Moving large crt monitors is much, much easier. You just assume the dl position, hoist up, lock in the grip and walk for a very long time if need be. Its not like doing a sub 3min Fran but its that sort of thing that you're pleased to notice.
