View Full Version : After hike physical recovery

08-13-2004, 11:40
As a long distance (60-120 miles) section hiker I find coming off the hike to be probematic. Probably what is needed is easily digested food at that point--fruit and vegetables, yoghurt, etc., but the temptation is great for eating too much, drinking alcohol, icecream, eating pizza, etc. I want to eat right after hike, but the will to do so is not so easy. Also the back, knees, etc may be out of whack if you were hiking to your physical limit.
