Friday evening it was a pleasure to meet Andi out in the Ouachita National Forest, at Lake Sylvia and the trail parking lot. We drove out to Electronic Tower to do some loops on the hilly gravel roads. It was so very hot! On my way through Little Rock at 4 PM the car thermometer read 106 Degrees. OUCH!
The plan was to take it very easy and get 25 miles. Well...... We walked and we walked and we walked! The sun went down, but the humidity and heat never become bearable! So we just walked and walked and walked. I was very pleased with our pace while we were moving, walking anywhere between 13 and 17 minute miles. We had a few slower miles uphill. Overall it went very well. I'm sure it will do us good to have that walking workout.
