First and foremost, I ran. I am sticking to my short and slow for this week. Well, sort of. It was short but it wasn’t really slow. And just like Monday, there was no pain but I can still tell that things aren’t quite completely healed. So maybe that HIKE in the afternoon wasn’t such a smart idea. That was where I could feel my knee saying, “please stop.” My knee is so polite.
Run: 3 Miles / 32:50
Hike: 2 Miles / Kiwanis Trail (picture is the view from the TOP of South Mountain)
So, in between the run and the hike, I decided to clean out the cabinets. WTF? I thought I had stopped stockpiling food. But really, I have not. I threw anything away that was “expired” and it could explain why my sisters birthday cupcakes were a big, fat failure. Everything is gone, cleaned out and looking better.
I will do a recap of my 2012 goals (and results) next week, but I already have a new goal in mind for 2013. Hike all of the South Mountain trails. Now, some are short and I could do them right now. Some even shorted than the Kiwanis Trail. But there are a couple that are LONG. And I mean 14 miles long. ONE WAY. So those longer ones may have to be done in sections. But there are 33 in all and I think it is doable!
In addition to actually hiking (or running) the trails, I will do a write-up on each one. And in the Phoenix area, once I am done with South Mountain, there are plenty of others to choose from (North Mountain, Squaw Peak, Camelback, the Estrella’s, the White Tanks, etc).
Food went something like this: Egg sandwich, coffee, a little bit of leftover sausage dip and tortilla chips, a piece of crack (cinnamon) toast, chicken breast with ranch for dipping and veggie mix.
I have more updates for you on the projects I made for Michael, the trail review and what arrived in my mail on Wednesday. Those are coming soon.
