The Long(est) Walk

Saturday, May 08, 2010

So I looked online for local walking trails and found one around a nearby lake. I decided to head out this afternoon to give it a shot. The loop was described as being two hours.

Well, after about an hour of walking I realized I wasn't even one tenth of the way around the lake! Even at a full sprint I couldn't possibly have got around the lake in two hours! I'm guessing that someone entered the time for cycling onto the walking page... either that or DRIVING! To top it off, it started to rain.

I ended up walking for ninety minutes (I HUSTLED back along a shortcut in fear of a downpour) and burning 340 calories. It was nice to get some fresh air (it was cool with a strong breeze), and it's a good time of year to see migratory birds around here... but I can't say I'm not disappointed to have given up on the loop!

    I liked your story about the longest walk. I have been there and done that. Mine's a local lake in the mountains.
Also, never believe the trail coding system for "easy", "intermediate", or "hard". Obviously all these hiking guides were created by the athletic and the agile. Let's keep doing the Sparking, I know we can get around our lake one day.

Wipeout!

Friday, May 07, 2010

I walked straight into a fire hydrant today and totally wiped out! A few months ago that would have seriously injured me, but today I think I was strong enough to protect my body from injury. All I have are minor scrapes on my knees and palms! All of the muscles I'm building have other uses besides helping me look cuter in a bikini!

Oldies But Goodies

Thursday, May 06, 2010

Today I comfortably wore a non-stretchy skirt that I bought in Italy in 2006. I wore it with a sweater that I wore once in 2008, but decided it was too tight. Aaaah... I have got some great old clothes that I can't wait to wear again!

Ice Cream Sundae!

Wednesday, May 05, 2010

Somehow there ended up being ice cream sundaes in the lunchroom today! I didn't even realize, but my boss came and said, "Go to the lunchroom!" I was confused, and she wouldn't tell me why, so I just did as I was told. Inside... ice cream! I had a small bowl of chocolate ice cream, a tiny drizzle of caramel syrup, a few rainbow sprinkles and a mini Kit-Kat bar for decoration! Yum! Luckily, it fits safely into my calorie allowance for the day. It's nice to get to indulge every now and then!

Windy!

Tuesday, May 04, 2010

We've got 100 km/h winds outside... imagine how much energy it would take to run against that kind of wind!
