So, rather than post every single time I set foot out the door, I figured I’d just give you a quick update. So far this week I have gone:
Friday: 1.88 miles
Saturday: 2.44 miles in the morning and 3.95 in the afternoon
Sunday: 5.04 miles in one swell foop before heading off to Mass
Monday: 5.51 miles this morning.
Pounds lost since the 13th: 3.8
Total Miles Covered So Far: 18.81
I think that puts me pretty close to the Buckleberry Ferry. The Hobbits obviously lost weight on this journey. I am sure as heck not cutting calories.
This morning’s adventure found me in a nature area. I decided to see how far I could go in one hour, then no matter where I ended up, it would be time to turn back. I was beebopping along through the woods when I came across an interesting feature in the trail. It was a 6 inch board that ran across a small ravine. That’s the road, man. I looked around. No one else has been going around this thing. That’s all foresty over there. Um. Ok. I crossed it and kept on going.
The next obstacle was a pretty steep rocky and depressive incline that I had to go down. Did I mention it rained this morning? And that fallen leaves are really a whole lot like mini surfboards for your feet? Oh yes. I sat down and scooted on my bottom rather than hurt myself by falling.
Obstacle number three involved a stream and a fallen tree-bridge. Yes. I walked carefully over it…….all 900 feet. Ok maybe it was only about 12. But still……
And then, it was time to turn around and head back. Neat. I haven a fallen tree bridge exactly an hour’s walk away from my front door.
