Trail Running


Yes, I said trail RUNNING - or maybe I should have said 'walking real fast' or 'slowly jogging' - well, whatever you want to call it, that's what I did today. I've been continuing my exercise program (I'm down 25 lbs for the year so far), doing the Couch to 5k routine on the treadmill inside, and switching it up with other exercises to keep things fresh - a bike ride here, an exercise DVD there. I thought I would take advantage of the mild weather and hit the trails across the street. As you can see, it was a little muddy still! But I had no problem keeping my heart rate up in the cardio zone - no problem at all! It exercised different muscles than running on the treadmill, and it felt great! Even my workout buddy enjoyed it!

I'm amazed that your feet were so muddy, yet Barclay's feet were pristine white. How does THAT happen? lol!

Congrats on the 25lb weight loss and fitness program success. You go girl!
