News of the Week


A few weeks ago I discussed on Sundays I switched out a running cardio day for hiking. My primary trail is Thunderbird Conservation Park, 10 miles/17 minutes from my house. This week I went to a different trail. Calderwood Butte is 15 miles/23 minutes from my house. I have not been there since October 2015. There are two trails. I went on the south trail: 2.2 miles in 59 minutes. The trail had several climbs and descents, 283-foot elevation change and an excellent workout. However, it is too far from home and took too long to complete. I need to get a solid 20 to 30 minutes of exercise and return home so I can eat breakfast and relax before heading to the library. Calderwood Butte is a good but not a great weekly option.
