Hiking and a New Routine

I am behind on blogging.  I will try to catch up.

Last Saturday I went hiking at a local college.  They have a cross-country trail.  It was amazing.  So many options, so many hills.  Crazy but I was told this was harder than “my road.”  I think it was a challenge but not as hard as my road.  I am going back this Saturday and I will re-evaluate.  It has been years since I have been on the Braille trail and would like to incorporate that into our hike.  A slight detour would be great.  I have to take my tiny camera and try to get a few shots.  We ended up hiking/walking about two miles.  Not much.  I still had some energy but my partner was ready to stop.  I have discovered the key to hills.  If you take them slow, you can make it WITHOUT stopping which is a better option. Stopping makes the legs cry.  My heart rate never got high on this high.  I struggled a bit, but not really.  I never felt like I could not breathe and was going to die like my road.  HA.  Let us see what happens this Saturday.

My garden is winding down and I think I am almost ready to dump the whole thing and add more soil and nutrients and start fresh with winter crops.  I have pumpkin planted on the netting but the first fruit is green and almost looks like a melon.  Maybe the plant was mistaken marked wrong.  Time will tell. Right now, it is only about five inches around.

This weekend I have to re-evaluate my workout program.  I want to incorporate my step.  I need to keep my Bowflex for my upper extremity injuries and to keep my strength up.  I want to delve in the Big Book of Exercises and change it up a bit.  I am ready for a change of routine.  Any fun things to do?

I added a few new pictures of Brooklyn’s friends and the new hiking trail I am experimenting with. Be sure to check it out.

    Hey Dynamics,

    Te walking trails you describe sound like an enjoyable challenge. Good tempo tip on climbing the mountains.

    Mother & I love to walk the Rail Trail with our dog Sampson. We were out for a few miles this morning. The hills are not mountains though. Good thing too, Sam is only 7 pounds of gristle, his legs are about 3 inches long, I figure he takes 100,000 steps for everyone of our 1000! Then again, he does have 4 of them!

    I use the BBOE, any of the workouts in the back of the book are good. Careful with the Spartacus! What I really like about BBOE is that it offers pictorials of proper form.

    Be well
