As stated yesterday, today was to be an easier day. As such, I took the time while running the loop today, to rebuild some of the rock cairns that I've built in the past but, for whatever reason, other hikers love to destroy! The big one out on the Badlands Loop made for some good upper body and core muscle work.
|Someone else took time to build the little guy in the foreground.|
In addition to the lifting, I've also begun to do many, many sets of calf raises by standing on a ledge and raising/lowering my heels. I had done a ton of these when I prepared for the Pikes Peak events in the past.
10 miles in the AM. More hiking at dusk.
