I hiked another 7 miles this morning. It looked like rain and mud for my training hike today but, that didn’t happen. The skies cleared and the weather was beautiful. I wasn’t on the trail 2 min before I crossed paths with 3 deer. Later I was hiking next to a huge armadillo. It is very rare to see one in the wild. Their natural habit as most people know is lying on the side of the road usually accompanied by a buzzard.
Another Training Hike
I hiked on at my usual pace and finished in about 2 hr 40 min. It seems to feel a bit easier with each hike and I’m thinking I’ll need something more challenging sooner or later. Right now I’ll continue to train here since its so close and I’ll up the mileage maybe by the middle of April.
