I have my ticket, and have been looking forward to the view from the top. But now I'm thinking that doing this extreme climb will use muscles not prepared for this constant stair-stepping, and usually what happens is that two days later I'm stiff as a board, which lasts for several more days.
I cant afford to be hobbling around, when there is still 9 more days of activities. I guess I'll just have to be stiff and have painful muscles for a few days, but it has kinda taken the excitement out of me.
Has anybody had this kind of afterburn, and how did it affect the next few days of their vacation?
