Today was more of a thinking day while walking. What I started to think about was quick sayings for the trail. Mostly to keep from overdoing it. I came up with four:

1. 90% of fatigue happens after 80% effort.
2. If it hurts you are doing it wrong.
3. Hiking fast won't last.
4. Rest before you are tired.

I've read a lot of journals and books on long trails. A lot of people seem to get overuse injuries. A lot of these could be prevented by not pushing so hard. It's not worth getting an injury that forces a day off just to get a few extra miles.

There was a small concert outdoors at the University. It was really loud music of some sort I don't recognize. I would have gone closer, but it was really too loud and it looked like you had to pay. I enjoyed seeing people do it though.

The bicycle trail along the Fountain Creek was really nice today. Everything is getting greener.
