This week, I braved the preserve that’s close to our house as my first attempt at walking off sidewalk. I skipped the uphill bits and any place where climbing over logs was necessary – I stuck to the easy trails in short.
One of my favorite signs in the world:
I took my time. Didn’t rush things. As you can see, the trail is nice and wide and mostly flat – all good for recovering walks! It was great to see how clear it was. I could see all the way to the channel islands.
I’m really glad I’m not allergic to whatever this yellow blooming weed is – it’s everywhere!
Finally, I get to why I did this trail – the gorgeous coastline. The waves. The sound is so restful and healing.
You just can’t beat these views.
I wasn’t kidding about those yellow blooming weeds – everywhere! So tall too.
I finished the walk in about an hour. I didn’t do all of the usual path, but enough to really help my body get moving again. Then, I had a couple of tacos and headed home. Shower. Bed. It took a 2-hour nap to recover, but it was worth it.
My healing continues …
