My husband & I went for a hike in the desert yesterday morning. We only hiked for about 75 minutes total, since it is still kind of warm here in Phoenix, and I hadn't been hiking in about 5 months.
We used to hike together at least once a week, but I was in PA. most of the summer visiting family & my husband just returned from a fellowship at Texas Tech University. My husband also had knee surgery in early June & wasn't able to hike for quite a while. He seems to be fully recovered, because the hike yesterday didn't cause him any pain.
We are pretty fortunate because we can hike all fall and winter here in Phoenix. Do you do much hiking where you live?
