We failed at the super early hike with missed 5:30am alarms all around but the light was still pretty golden a few hours later. Leaving via the trail over the road whilst dodging the local horses and boggy fields we made our way towards the peak of Steinskammen. A short but enjoyable hike that involved a touch of scrambling/bouldering, wouldn't necessarily recommend it unless you're keen on that kinda thing.
My friend @torsteintrym decided to bust some moves out in the wild. I can't even do a handstand yet, this level of skill is incredible. 👏
After being in Lofoten for two weeks I am still in awe of the scenery here. Everywhere you look has another peak or ridge to explore. Finally my friends @peteveale & @critday have showed up to go on some adventures together. We decided to take on another quick but spectacular hike, Mannen peak.
Everything was going well, having a great time running back down the ridge. Suddenly my foot and leg decided to go in different directions. Oops. Kind of hard to tell from the immediate aftermath shot but my ankle instantly turned into a ballon. Currently in the process of endless cycles of ice. Looks like that is game over for hiking/running for a little while. Perhaps even a long while, not looking so good the day after :(.
It's pretty ironic that I was about to start a new part of my website/Steem account to document my training and movement practices on the very day that this happened. Sometimes life throws you a curve ball and you have to deal with it. At least it means I might finally get some laptop work done :)
