Pacific Crest Trail Map

The Training Has Started

Since the last entry I have started training. We are so blessed here in Edmonton, Alberta, in having a great Green Belt Trail System. I live 1 and a half blocks from the Mill Creek Ravine, and it is an up and down trail that i can do the is a 6 mile loop. I used this in 2006 as my training area, and am using it again. In 06 I walked about 1700 miles in training before I hit the trail. That is NOT happening this time, but I have done 24 miles since the last entry. Today it was a lot harder, because we received about 12 inches of snow yesterday, and walking in that much snow is a lot more tiring. My plan is to continue this week with the 10 lbs in the pack, and then next week increase the weight. I will do 6 miles each day this next week and then maybe increase the distance next. I will update the journal and let you know how it is going. As of now I am looking forward to May 4.
