It was a busy day - cold, but very sunny out with little or no wind. It's the 1st day since the big 14" snowfall that Jetta & I have been able to make it back into the woods on the hiking trail. We had to break the trail thru 6" or so of snow. Had on my big Sorrel pak boots with felt liners that come up to my knees. Not exactly made for quick cardio walking, but mushing thru deep snow. We made it all the way to the end of the trail and it was hard work. Got the heart pumping and the breaths accelerating pretty well. It was only 28 degrees but I could feel myself beginning to sweat underneath all the layers. So it was a good workout even though it wasn't fast walking. Never stopped and made it a continuous trek. It was really interesting to see 'who' uses the hiking trail when we're not out there. In the snow you can see the tracks. Surprisingly, it was mostly coyotes and only saw one set of deer tracks on the trail. I expected to see lots of deer tracks on the trail. Not many rabbit tracks were there either.
Finished up the rest of the cardio walking in the house and did ST this evening, core; upper body.
Thanks for stopping by today if you had time. Hope your Wednesday was great!!
