Day 10: the streak goes on...
Tuesday, November 13, 2012
I'm about to loose count of my days in a row. WOW! I think as of Mondays activity I am at day 10, and today will be day 11!
Monday my husband played hooky from work. shh don't tell. Monday was hiking day. Hour of power. Now being on day 10 my legs are starting to hurt a bit. Saturday's bike ride my quads where on fire! Today's hike up the hill, my calfs where bawling. No pain no gain.
It was a rainy day so we had on our rain jackets and we were set to go. A later start today so there are people there. Well it's cold and a little wind and rainy and a lot of water rushing over the falls! We powered up to the top. 23 min!
Donut man needed a donut. OK, well he's eaten a something different in the morning and being a little later start we was low on food. So he grabbed a zone bar and ate it at the top for a min. Then we started back down to switch back 5. Down and back up right on time. Then we turn and head back down.
With the daylight hiking I can take off and leave him on the down hills. So I do. I didn't mean to throw the little kid over the bridge! He got in my way! OK so the kid didn't get thrown over the bridge. But while crossing the bridge and trying to do it quickly as the spray is intense. A family has been standing on the bridge and now decided it's time to move off of it. The little kid not watching where he was going walked right into me!
I got around him and took off!
I got down to the car in 56 min! I decided to go back up and find donut man. He's at the top of the steps almost down. He goes around me and said "I'm timing!" and he goes down the stairs past the coffee shop that has people waiting in line for coffee. I'm right be hind him looking at my watch (as I'm the timer today). People look at us and I said giving him a hand he's about to brake his old record of going to the top and back. They were great and cheered him on! He loved it! He got to the car in 57 min! Only 1 min behind me!
Now be on the look out for another blog. A I think I'm crazy mind boggling exciting blog. A Long term goal blog......
