Yesterday I did the east-west ranch hike in Cambria again. This time I was with my grandson and it was not foggy, but it was very windy and cold. We did it in one hour, which for me is respectable and, I think, less than the last time. I did not feel the discomfort I felt the last time, although my hip acted up a bit near the end. Gives me hope.
I am a bit stiff today and my right hip is hurting again. It does seem like I pay for these hikes on the following day. Worth it, of course.
