Every year about this time when the weather starts to break I start to do two things. 1) Watch Youtube videos of people starting their through hikes. 2) Train so that I can do my smaller hikes...

Last year I had some setbacks. Family obligations and serious blister issues kept me from achieving the real miles that I had wanted. That's ok. 2017 is a new year, and I am going to make it work for me.

This year I am going to plan smaller hikes more frequent hikes to get started. That should help with the issue I had with my legs locking up. And the blisters I am going to get rid of by swapping socks more and taking more breaks.

In the meantime while the weather is still a little too cool I am going to walk on the treadmill to toughen up the feet and shed a few extra pounds. Thought when the weather permits, like yesterday, I will walk along the country road near my house....

*sigh* spring time are you here yet????
