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.
