Well it's been a long and busy week. Work has been stupid due to working an extra hour everyday and the 2 extra on Thursday morning REALLY sucked. Been playing catchup on sleep since then still need a few more.
Thursday we did a ride and clear at Accotink. Damn. A TON of trees down. We cleared a bunch of stuff and some smaller trees using hand saws but a lot simply requires chainsaws. Larry C sawed out a MEGA ton of timber, probably 100+ cuts or more in 2 hours.
Also "found" a wasp nest on the Gas Plant trails near the BIG Grass Field. One of my guys was stung 10-15 times, another maybe more but on the head and body and he bailed out. Not that I got away without being stung, I got taped once, on the thumb thru my glove. Oy I was damn lucky. And very glad I wore my 3/4's shorts over my tights.
Still a lot of stuff to clear on the new interior trail I believe, though WF is now fully clear. Actually trimmed the lower third of Phase 4 that was just horribly over growing. Got tired of battling plants while riding thru. Another week or two and it will be clear for a good while.
Ran again yesterday, felt much better than on last Friday's same run, this time running probably 2.5 and walking 1 mile of it. Not sure of time, but definetely ran further and better so my estimate for last week should have been like 1.75 and 1.75 I think. So thats about 11 miles of run/walking in the last 2 weeks, starting to feel better. Now I have a major goal to be in good shape as I'm doing this run at the end of October:
