Tried a new trail this morning at Dana Peak Park! I started out with 997 miles left to go and did 2 miles on the trail this morning. Hopefully, I will be able to get a couple of more miles in tonight!
I know every mile counts, but I always feel like I should be hiking a minimum of 4.5 to 5 miles each time I am out on the trails. Anything under that and I feel like it was pointless to even get on the trail if I wasn’t ready to go longer. I will say though since this was a new trail I had no idea what to expect or how far it would be. Maybe I should have hiked it again instead of returning home. At least then, I would have gotten 4 miles in this morning instead of the 2.
I am already behind for the month! So I really need to get my butt in gear! Sometimes I really wish I could just spend all day on the trails. Maybe I should look into doing a 2-day backpacking trip when it cools off some. Of course, then that means finding a babysitter. My kids are all older (12 to 16) so maybe finding one wouldn’t be too hard.
