Well I’m thinking about hiking the Appalachian Trail in 2019. I’ve started daily training. Getting up early at 5 AM and walking various distances around the neighborhood and city. I started at the beginning of September. I am also doing hills on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Because the AT is more up and down I’m just walking the hills on those days. In other words, in the past I would do a hill and then walk around the block to where I started and repeat. Now I’m getting to the top and just turning around and walking back down. I do this for both Mount Bonnell on Tuesday and Ladera Norte on Thursday. Also these hills aren’t very big, just a few hundred feet up, but that’s all I’ve got in town.
Right now my longest has been just over 10 miles.
