26 miles in 3 days

It wasn't 60 miles in 3 days but it was a start. I took to many days off last week after the Snohomish River Half.  Took a few to many reset days, which left me making up some miles Friday - Sunday.
 
 
Sunday I met with my local teammate for the 3-day walk with a goal to get in 15 miles. We met up at 10AM and started on our way. There is a new trail in the town I grew up in and it was beautiful and flat most of the way. 
 
 
The first half went well, we hit 7.5 miles and I talked my teammate into walking .5 more to make it 8 and turn around.  As we walked back we stopped a few more times to stretch and for the most part the aches and pains were minor. 


One thing I liked about this trail was there were two bathrooms along the way and several benches to stop and stretch. I didn't take enough pictures either as the trail was beautiful this time of year. The last part of our walk as a bit much as most of it was uphill back to our meeting spot. 5+ hours later we had completed 16 miles and my teammate realized that this 3 day walk was going to be tough. I think it might have helped me to talk her into staying in a hotel instead of tenting it.

The goal for this week is to get my walks in through out the week.

How was your weekend?
