Hiking 5:45:11  16.5 mi (20:55 / mi) +2300ft 18:29 / mi
Prince William Forest
Final hike in preparation for the 25K Green Monster Trail Challenge which is just two weeks away.
I hiked around the PWF in a counterclockwise direction. I took a slightly different route than I did in April and unlike that time I did not hike off trail today.
The weather was perfect for a hike. It was cool but not too cool. I broke a sweat but didn't feel the need or desire to drink very much water while I was hiking.
My Garmin functioned well enough. The wrist band is kaput so I carried it in a cargo pocket. In the last mile of the hike it lost contact with satellites twice, including the entire last 1/2 mile.
Feeling pretty good about my level of overall preparedness for the 25K.
