Guest SophieSapphire Posted April 19, 2004 Report Share Posted April 19, 2004 This summer I am going to my first SI (ballet austin). Since I've never been to an SI before, I don't know how exhausted I'll be or if i'll need to take a break, BUT... These family friends of ours go on a backpacking trip in August. My brother has gone before, my dad went last year, and this year both of them and my mom want to go. They really want me to go (if i don't my mom probably won't be able to), and I'm considering it. 8 days in the Sierra Nevadas (Crites Lake) would be AMAZING!! However, i am wondering if it is even POSSIBLE. Austin is six weeks, and by the time we got home it would be August 3rd, and they plan to leave for the trip on August 8. That would give me 5 days to recuperate. SO my questions are: 1. How much recuperation is needed after an SI, if any? 2. I am definatly not strong enough for the trip now, but would the SI help me? 3. Would doing both the SI and the backpacking trip completly burn me out, counteract everything I got at the SI, or make me just lose everything I gained? 4. Is this just a REALLY BAD IDEA altogether?? Thanks for your help!!! Quote Link to comment
