Living with intent, social engagement, learning, growing, giving
Today my husband and I took the opportunity for a bush walk together. I ran in a 10km fun run on Sunday without training so I have been hobbling around with regular exclamations of pain since then. Fortunately my soccer team failed to reach the finals (which are played this week) so at least I was given a reprieve from playing. So, I was conflicted about whether to walk or not but with an international trip imminently approaching we decided to go anyway. We wanted to push ourselves so we returned to Mount Tennent via Bushfolds Flat again. Last time we walked it in the Autumn and you can read about it here.
The first part of the climb was relentless but quite gentle in slope and we powered along. We stopped several times to admire the forest, kangaroos, spiders and views and it wasn’t until we were on the steepest section of the climb that my sore feet felt like I had large rocks in my shoes and my calf muscles started to shout more loudly. I was tempted to turn back but that wouldn’t have been any fun so we persevered to the top and we were rewarded with lovely views as clouds moved across the sky.
We were 8 minutes slower than last time and considering the muscle pain that I endured that doesn’t seem too bad!
