Well, I have my "official" training schedule. Jamie So, my awesome physical therapist, is also an elite triathlete. She drew up a schedule for the next three months, and we're going to go in three-months chunks so I don't get overwhelmed. Hoo, boy! It's challenging and it's only going to get more difficult. I'm doing something every day, from two-hour hikes to weights and aerobics.
Yesterday I did a two-hour hike in Riverbend State Park and Great Falls National Park in Northern Virginia (they're right next to each other).
What a beautiful day! GFNP was pretty crowded with lots of families together for the Thanksgiving holiday. I always gave way to the faster hikers -- I'm slow but steady! I need to take my trekking poles with me from now on. Parts of the trails are challenging and I need to maintain my balance, which is one of my Parkinson's symptoms.
Today is a one-hour hike and tomorrow is a Jamie circuit session. The
fun just never stops! Take a look at some photos from yesterday's hike! The river is the Potomac.
