December at Walden

It’s only December and I’m already getting impatient to start open water swimming again. So… I looked through my training log to see how long I have to wait. My first ows last spring was May 5th at Walden Pond….. well I have about 4½ months to go.

If I was to create a top ten list of favorite places, Walden would definitely be on there. So, why wait until spring. Just because the water is freezing cold doesn’t mean I can’t enjoy the rest of the park. For those who don’t know, The Walden Pond State Reservation offers a great network of trails that connect to other conservation land like Adams Woods in Lincoln, MA.

I decided to go for an easy pace trail run around the pond. I only came across a few other people walking on the pond loop trail, quite a difference from about four months ago. Even with no leaves on the trees and the temperature in the 20s…. It was a great run!
