Walk #352: Hills!
Now that I've announced my intention (the CR trip) it is time to do the work. Angel and I ran the long loop. Then I cinched up my backpack and spent 1/2 hour walking up and down a couple of hills. I threw a few hardcover books into the backpack for weight. It is important to get used to carrying a backpack again. These legs are strong, but need to get stronger. And we only have 20 days or so to pull this off.
I am also restricting calories. We worry more as we get older. Gone are the youthful will-o-the-wisp days when getting ready for a trip meant grabbing your toothbrush.
Wish me luck...
