  • 199 as of April 15.

    Photos from my walk this morning. I was too late for the hot air balloons, and too early for the fog rising from the lake... some other day perhaps.

        • I am glad you like the pictures! It's a nice area, but I can walk there only during the weekend. During the week I just walk around the block here in the city. Not really scenic...
          I would love to see more walking pictures from you, too! It's always nice to see where other people live and enjoy nature!

          Saturday I made a loong hike. 35 kms! I am still a little bit sore, but all in all it wasn't as worse as I expected.

          399.9 kms as of 15th April (damn, I should have walked a tiny little bit more yesterday to complete the 400 kms!)

          • I'm in! I don't care how late I am. If I walk an average of four miles a day, or double up on that on the weekends I can make it. I'll add in some of my long hikes and walks from this year too that I've recorded in my journal. MapMyTracks sounds really cool, but wouldn't you know it, it's not working today. Oh well, can't wait to try it tomorrow.

            I'm transitioning to a bigger and more consistent focus on slow moving through walking and yoga now. I spent the beginning of the year convinced sprinting and intense resistance training would improve my health. I've gotten stronger, but not smaller or less anxious. There's a good chance I've already burned out my adrenals, which means the only kinds of exercise I'm likely to benefit from is this kind.

            Oh, yeah, and I love it! I'm so happy walking around with my wee iPod. But adding in some photography like you guys have sounds just as fun.

            Vive la lente resistance!

                      • Love all the photos everyone is posting! Hope to see more.

                        Still getting a lot of good walks in. Yesterday afternoon's hike took kind of a wrenching turn tho... halfway up the mountain I almost stepped on an injured baby wood rat lying right on the trail. I think a hawk or owl had grabbed it and then dropped it. A bit banged up, seriously hypothermic, but still alive; looked a lot like this:



                        I gave him some of my water, then sprinted back to the trailhead and drove crosstown to the wildlife rescue place, where he'll spend the night in an incubator.

                        I should be in bed but am having a hard time shaking it off. The whole thing leaves me feeling not very "primal". I get the whole predator-prey thing, eat meat myself, have cats that probably enjoy wood rat for lunch when they're allowed outside...but man, I sure do hate watching anything suffer needlessly.

                        Hope the little fella makes it. Happy walking to all...

                        • THAT is the cutest thing I ever saw! I wouldn't worry about the primal thing, I suppose if you were starving you would have made it a snackette! but as your not and we are civilised human beings its ok to be sentimental

                            • 406.9 kms as of April 19th!

                              I am leaving tomorrow for 2 weeks. I will continue walking, but I don't know if I have access to the internet to update my progress.

                              Cantare, that is a cute little animal! I think I would have done the same, don't feel bad about it!
