This summer has not been a so-so hiking summer for us. I sit a lot at work and I’ve gotten terribly out of shape. Next summer we are planning a big foreign trip and we need to get in shape. At least we have a year!
We did a new-to-us hike. A friend on Facebook posted a run route through Carkeek Park and it looked interesting. We took the route along Piper Creek to the main meadow and then up to the South Bluff. It was a 3 mile loop. It took us 1:20 minutes which is about right (30 minutes per mile).
I’ll add this to our favorite Winter walks to use this winter to build up our endurance.
