Good day, today. Sunny, not a cloud in the sky. Temperature, low 70"s. So, I went on a hike

with my club. 6 1/2 miles with a total gain of 10 stories (as per the iPhone app).

Lot of huffing and puffing on my part as i am out of condition from not doing much hiking since March. Also I am overweight.

But I kept up and the scenery was beautiful (N.J.) with the hills of Penna. in the background. One Bald Eagle overhead... not much of a surprise since there is an Eagle's nest on the hike location's property.

Two more club hikes scheduled this week, tomorrow and Saturday. I plan to do both.

1. Good for you! I hope you'll keep it up, if not at that intensity.

You might want to rest a day between hikes.

But if you keep at it, the rewards will be plentiful! Easier walking, some pounds lost, better blood pressure and heart rate, and so on.

2. I envy you.

Hubby and I used to belong to a local walking club as well as Volksmarch, an international walking group.
Those were among the best years of our lives - we were in our 50s.

3. I figure I got at least another 10 years before I can't keep up with the club, anymore.

4. Sounds great! I'm wondering how your app calculates feet per stories. NT

5. Damn if I know.

Its a health app, appropriately called, "Health."

It closely matches the calculations of other hikers' apps after the hikes.
