I think that I have finally thawed out enough to type a blog post.
It was a most interesting weekend. My knee was fine, until it wasn’t. The cold was bearable, until it wasn’t. I “ran” both trails, each of which had considerable uphill/downhill. Friday night’s trail was only a mile as the crow flies but the last climb was tough. Saturday’s trail was at least four miles as the crow flies with major hill climbs (for Georgia) and incredible wind gusts.
The weather Friday night turned out to be better than predicted. We were able to run trail, and have circle in relatively pleasant temperatures and no rain. The rain arrived at midnight which drove me to my tent. Along with the rain Mother Nature brought howling winds and the onslaught of freezing temperatures. I don’t believe the temperatures ever eclipse freezing on Saturday, I am certain they did not considering wind chill. There weren’t many of us brave and/or dumb enough to tent camp on Saturday night, most people retiring to their cabin or huddling in the big house at the pioneer camp ground. I was one, as was Bonnie. It wasn’t cold, it was bitterly cold. If I could have kept my feet warm I would have been okay, but no matter what I did to warm them was ineffective.
As you might imagine I went to bed very early last night, after falling asleep watching YouTube videos.
As you might imagine I am sore all over and am reentering a period of stressless exercise to give my knee a chance to stop hurting.
I plan to go to Lowe’s today, but there is no way you could get me out before the temperature rises above 45°F.
Today’s agenda included a lot of time in WLF. I need to,inspect for damage caused by the storm here, as well as the state of my seedlings in the greenhouses. I fear the frost probably killed some of them.
There is an outside chance I will attend the Moonlite hash tonight since it starts in Decatur. Of course with my injuries I shan’t be actually doing the trail.
Hope that you were able to stay healthy and warm this weekend.
