At this time of year a runner can face a dilema … what exercise do you wish to do today? Prior to January 2017 I didn’t have this problem, I only ran, but in December 2016 I registered for a snowshoe clinic at a local mountain … and I loved the experience from my first steps.
As a result my winter training now includes running, walking and snowshoeing depending on the weather and snowshoe trail conditions. Yesterday I decided to return to Grouse Mountain for a snowshoe session … a fall of fresh snow had occured and contidions were much better than last week.
As the above profile shows first half of the trail is mainly uphill but then the return is mainly downhill. My legs yesterday were complaining during the last uphill section but were very happy on the return after Dam Mountain. Snowshoeing was a good option yesterday.
From a photographic viewpoint yesterday’s weather … low overcast skies with some light snow falling … wasn’t great but still so beautiful and so peaceful … I look forward to returning again before too long.
And, a new fitness addition as of yesterday …. Apple Fitness+ … many options including Yoga …
