Last weekend i got out to some trails with a friend. I hadn't been on trails in months. I picked a trail that offers a lot of bang for the buck and isn't too steep or technical yet still is single track for portions of it. many years ago this trail got washed out in a flood and the trail was closed. That friend and I have been checking progress of the work to redo this trail from the flood over the years. Last time we did it a couple years ago they had a really nice new section laid out but it was a scramble to get over a creek as the bridge was still in pieces. We didn't die crossing
but definitely ignored the closed and barricaded area to access it. I'm glad i got to watch the progress over the years so no regrets trespassing. the three new bridges were amazing and we could see the remains of the old trail.
Went lake water running with the friend this morning. We go from one swim buoy to the next and I think we set a new PR on this course. it took 50 minutes where before we didn't make it as far or it took longer. And we saw a bald eagle overhead.
We finished in enough time for me to go home and do a power cardio video strength thing. I'm trying to mix it up a bit more with strength stuff. This was fun and I plan on doing more of the series.
Weekend plans: group run, visit with FIL at skilled nursing facility, work in garden, grill hamburgers satuday
, laundry, movie with mom on sunday, and more work for the other job. it'll be busy and over quickly.
bonus: in order they appear - washington cherries, blueberries and peaches. i can't just pick one.
I like watermelon quite a bit but won't actually buy one myself so i always appreciate it when i get it at a potluck, picnic or party.
