I finally talked myself into getting out the door.
Went to the gym did some upper body stuff. My arms are so weak from not being able to workout for so long, but today I saw a few muscles start to peek out..so yay!!! I know they are still in there hiding.
One of my goals for the summer is to run all the conservation land in town, so I decided to run the next one on the list. I'm going A to W there are 17, a lot of them short like this one. Today I ran Bulette. It's a short trail in a very odd place. Down this small road lined with huge houses it lies in between two houses with well manicured lawns and signs not to use their drive way to park or turn around.
and not to park at the trailhead; the two tiny spaces they have to park are hard to get to if you don't use a driveway and someone has piled a mountain of soil in one. Luckily I had the Wrangler. I'm not sure how they obtained this little piece of land, or why really. Maybe just to preserve it and not really use as a trail? The trail is .7 and the access trail is .25. That's the reason I ran it, as today is an "easy 30 min walk" day. I ran down the road and back making it 1.5 miles total. It's been a while since I've been to this one. I was only there one other time and it was a bit foggy. Chris took me here one time a day or so after chemo when I was feeling awful he thought some time in nature would help. I could hardly make it around that day. And today I had a hard time remembering how the trail went. But it is well marked and does a weird loop of sharp turns. Of course it was fall then with little foliage today it was nearly overgrown. Good run, very easy pace, lots of rocks and roots, I generally walk through those areas.
I couldn't find my tick spray so I read lemongrass and geranium work. I didn't find any ticks... note to self keep away from face.
So now I feel like I've actually done something....
off to do laundry and a shower.. and the cat says she's hungry.
