It's going to be a squeaker with the weather we've had recently. Last year was so much milder at this time. I couldn't walk on Saturday, so today was 4 miles up into Paeonian Springs and back. I don't often do that kind of mileage, but I needed to cut the pressure from Mon and Tues. Tues the car goes to the shop because Thurs I leave for the closing on the new house. So even if something comes up (like school being delayed tomorrow and realtors coming by to talk about the house being sold), I'm close. Really close.
Today, though. While I thought they should have cleared the snow from the trail and that made footing occasionally tricky, in general the conditions were optimal. Lots of sun, very little wind, and about 30 degrees F.
Thank you commenters and encouragers. I'll go through and respond when this is over. The positive thoughts have helped. Then there's my friend to the south who just told me to get out there and do it. Much appreciated as it led to my four miles today.
