Spring Fever

(Laurels Preserves. March 2007. © Robin)

Last year around this time M and I were hiking around at the Laurels Preserves which is part of the Brandywine Conservancy’s Environmental Management.

What a difference a year makes.

Today we have sunshine here in the Bogs. It’s windy, but the temperature is a balmy 50 degrees. I’m ready to pull out the shorts and tank tops it feels so warm. We still have about 6-8 inches of snow on the ground. Thank goodness it’s not all melting at once or we might have more flooding in our basement. A slow melt is a good thing.

I heard a red-winged blackbird today. It made me smile. Spring must be coming.

I’m way late on posting my Move 2008 Week 10 update. Not because I did poorly, but because I’ve been too busy (and slightly lazy) to post.

Here it is:

  • Week 10 mileage: 22.19 miles
  • Total mileage for the 2008 at the end of week 10: 211.06 miles
  • Strength training: x 2
  • Yoga: 15 minutes daily

Considering how incredibly sore I was after our brilliant cross-country skiing experience, I think I did pretty well.

This week is shaping up to be a good one so far.

    Incredibly well! Just look at your mileage for the year so far! :)))

    I never saw or heard a red winged blackbird. I find it fascinating that our everyday local wildlife is quite different. And I’m grateful I don’t have to contend with snapping turtles or any snakes. Yikes.
