2.7 miles out of Palmdale
I slept in till 9am after waking briefly at 6am.
I feel so tired today.
Packed all my gear up very slowly ... between giving the puppies attention and packing it took me like an hour.
I was feeling very tired today so I decided I would do an easy 2.7 miles out of town.
What’s funny is that 2.7 miles was super easy, but super hard. Uphill with uneven terrain is hurting my left hip and left foot. I’ll be okay though, slow and steady wins the race this year :)
I am starting to find that I’m having a hard time with my mind trying to push my body into hiking more miles because I want to be doing more. I have to tell myself to slow down, be present, take it easy, less is more etc.
It’s hard. This year is hard. It’s hard to be going slow. It’s hard to have so much downtime and being alone with my thoughts. I am watching a lot of Netflix to pass the time and I despise that. (As much as I love my show, I hate being on my phone) I plan on picking up a book or a notepad and pen soon so I can write my thoughts down away from my phone or read a physical book etc.
I hate the screen, but the downtime makes me need to be on it to escape. I’m trying to lessen it each day and take rests specifically without my phone. I think having a pen to paper during each rest break would be so cool to try out.
Almost done my show and then time for sleep. Still no sunset. What the heck PCT...
