How do you know it's time for some body work? (I'm not talking about dents in the car!) For me, it's when my knees cry out, telling me I've done too many stairs in one week!
On Monday evening, we hiked down and up staircases to Marshall Beach in San Francisco.
On Tuesday evening, a hike at Windy Hill on the Peninsula (no stairs to speak of)
Wednesday--a bare 30 minute walk running errands--no stairs!
Thursday evening's City hike took us up and down numerous staircases in Lafayette Park, Alta Plaza, and then these, the Baker Street Stairs - 201 of them!
Friday another no-stair outing, just a 30 minute walk to the Kabuki Theater to see Robert Redford's movie, "A Walk in the Woods," then 30 minutes home.
Saturday a colleague and I hiked from my listing in the Belmont hills where I had met the appraiser, along an easement trail to the Cross Country running course, down to Pulgas Water Temple -- and then back up the hill
Today we hiked 8.5 miles on a slopes of beautiful Mt. Tamalpais, down the Steep Ravine Trail (hundreds of steps, including this ladder) to Stinson Beach, then up the Matt Davis trail (many hundred more stairs) and finally up to our car, an elevation loss and gain of 1900'.
Tomorrow afternoon I'll be seeing a great massage therapist who does wonders for my knees, Mila and Atlas Massage.
There's a danger to living and working in our part of the world -- it's hard to pass up great hiking opportunities!
