Every day when I go to my email box, there are thousands of emails, mostly old ones I have not erased, though I am trying to erase more every day. I just can't keep up with it. Many among these are from the hiking club I belong to, telling me about new and different hikes I could go on. Most are too hard for me. Until today, I wouldn't go on anything harder than Advanced beginner or transition to intermediate hikes. Today, because I couldn't find a rating on this particular hike, I went on a fully Intermediate hike, probably Intermediate plus! It had some killer hills, and I have particular trouble with hills. Just going distances doesn't trouble me, but I get discouraged and out of breath on hills with my short legs. I made it, but I wasn't sure I was going to. I felt rather miserable. It might have been better had I been wearing shorts. But I think I will stick to easier hikes from now on!
