First practice long hike

Although I slept in until I woke naturally at about 7 AM, I filled up my pack with some weight, drove down to Lady Bird Lake, and hiked 10 miles as practice. It wasn’t easy, but I completed it drenched in sweat at about 11:30 AM. Now tomorrow may be a different experience both trying to find a trail and handling the stiffness that I’m sure I’ll have tomorrow.
