Got up this morning pretty early to go walking with the local mountain group....met at 7:30 and headed off to the starting point. By far the most dangerous part of the day happened during the drive to the start...when we nearly got hit by a guy running a stop sign while looking at we know not what, but not the road. Very near thing.
I was under the impression that everyone was going to walk as a group, and then we weren't, so I decided to see what I could do after a really pretty blobby summer. Also probably to somewhat weary, as I have gone on long walks on Mon, Wed and Fri and rode the bike on Tue and Thur....that said, I didn't push very hard on any of those walks.
I did push pretty hard today, never went right into the red zone or anything, but pretty red in the face and puffy in places....
I felt fantastic. Walked and walked and walked...pushed hard enough that there were moments when it felt long-ish, and then the descent into town - which was long - felt so good that I ran it all.
Carried the darned camera the whole way and didn't take a single photo.......ah well.
Turns out that another walk we had planned I can go on which I thought I wouldn't be able to as we don't leave town till AFTER I finish work! (I couldn't find a substitute so thought that was that) BONUS!!!!!
