|The viewpoint on this morning's walk|
I learned that it's taking me longer to recover from hard hikes like I did last Thursday, because I went to turn on the juice and walk at our regular fast pace, and the legs just wouldn't go. I lagged far behind today, and Lily stayed with me while I struggled to deal with my painful quads and calves. It's not a long hike, just five miles round trip, so once we reached this view I suggested that the two of us would mosey back slowly, since going downhill is more difficult than going up on these legs right now.
A nice person who was also at the top took this lovely picture of us, so I am in it as well! And now it's afternoon and my legs are doing just fine. Tomorrow I'll be back in the swing of things, I'm hoping. It's my rest day anyway.
