It's Hammy Time!
(Hamstrings and quadriceps, that is..)
We've talked about it, so let's do it! This is an all uphill or downhill walk, with a few short flats on the route.
The route is listed below. Don't let it intimidate you. It is challenging at first, but I have been doing it a few times, and it is getting easier.
If you want to pick some of the legs to do, you can meet up with the group at the top of the hill after each leg. Or you can shorten your hill by cutting across the street mid-way, and waiting for the group to catch up.
Remember, a hill climbed slowly is still a hill climbed!
PARKING & NOTES:
Start at Vista Park parking lot, at the corner of State College and Bastanchury. This is a large lot just below the Summit House restaurant. See photo at bottom for the sign to turn in. Entrance is on the south side of the intersection. There is a small View Park across the street. Ok to park there and walk across to the meeting place, but there are only 8 spaces in that lot. Please bring water. Also, always good to have ID and emergency contact, on any outing. Route is on wide sidewalks. The route is determined to take advantage of the street lights as night falls. Walkers will start on Leg 1 at 6:10pm. Route is just shy of 4 miles. Allot 1-1:15 hrs. Based on group feedback, we are planning on making this a weekly walk. If you are interested in co-hosting, please let Jenny know.
Note: Legs 1&2 are the longest in distance, and Leg 2 is the steepest, I believe. Feel free to meet up with the group at the top of the hill for particular legs, if that works best for your own fitness needs.
Leg 1: Start at parking lot. Go down State College to Yorba Linda Blvd. Cross street and go back up State College. Leg 2: Go down Bastanchury to Associated. Cross street and go back up Bastanchury. Leg 3: Go down State College to Rolling Hills. Cross street and go back up State College. Leg 4: Go down Bastanchury to where it flattens out (before the park). There is a paved opening in the median that we will cross to go back up Bastanchury. Yay! Finish at the Vista Park parking lot!
