tripping up the trail

this morning…

Filed under: preparation — dragons0mother @ 5:58 pm

South Florida has no true elevation changes.  It’s a fairly flat area.  Where the ground dips, water collects.  Walking on flat ground doesn’t help one really prepare for backpacking in the mountains, but it is all I have to work with.

This morning is one of my walking days.  Since I’m still well out of shape from my  ongoing tendonitis, I am working on walking time, rather than distance.  I left my house at 11:15 and didn’t return until 1:15.  I could have walked further, but I didn’t want to push it.  Not today.  Not when I have months before my first section hike.

I tried to stay off the well-beaten path.  Instead I walked across the Ridge.  I walked on sandy horse trails.  I walked across fields.  My path may have been flat, but it wasn’t necessarily smooth.
