We did manage to get into the double digits with our mileage this week--finally--and hit 10.44 miles. Even though the mileage isn't much to brag about, we're considering this week a success.
On Monday, the sun was shining brightly, so even though it was only 25 degrees out, we headed up to the State Park. I kept hearing about the insane amount of ice covering Lake Erie, so I wanted to see it for myself.
I wasn't sure what to expect. The trails at the State Park aren't groomed in the winter, and I know there would be at least a foot of snow and ice covering the trails, but sometimes we're able to walk on the roads through the park instead. I figured it was worth the 5 minute drive to the park, though, so I rushed home after work, bundled up, and we hopped in the car.
Our normal parking lot had a path wide enough for a car plowed through it, but there were only three cleared parking spots--luckily, we were the only ones crazy enough to be there, so we had our pick of spots.
|Barley's pretty sure there used to be a trail here.|
|It doesn't seem like it's been that long since the marina was filled with boats.|
|She was so happy I didn't make her wear boots for our short walk.|
Even though it felt like we were walking in Antarctica, Barley and I both loved having a chance to get out of the neighborhood and see some new sights for a change. My weather app says there will be several days in the 40s next week, so hopefully we get to expand our world a little more next week, too!
Happy FitDog Friday! Hope everyone else is seeing the light at the end of this winter tunnel now, too!
