Lunchtime 3 Miler

Tuesday, March 26, 2013

So, I headed out today for a nice lunchtime walk. The day is so gorgeous..how could I pass it up?

I decided to tackle the hill outside of my office driveway (I usually head in the other direction). Here is the start of the hill...really, how bad could it be?

Before I was even 4 minutes into my walk, I was breathing heavy and thinking maybe I should have gone the other way. emoticon But, I kept pushing on. This picture is approximately 1/4 way up the hill I was actually starting to get my hill legs moving better and the breathing was a little improved. Could that be the top I see up ahead? *SIGH*...not even close! But, I kept pushing on until I thought I might drop on the ground...where is the top of this thing???? OK, I get it, it's a huge hill; but, I see a bend in the road up ahead...is that the top? NOPE! It was just a tease! Approximately another 1/8 of a mile until I began a downward slope. Oh, thank God! The next 15 minutes were all downhill. What a great breather!

By the time I got to the end of that part of the walk, I realized I had only been walking 30 minutes (Dear God! It felt like 2 hours! emoticon) Well, what's a girl to do when she still has a half an hour of lunch break left? Yep! Keep on walking! I added on another 1.5 miles to make it an even 3 mile walk for lunch and managed to get back to the office in exactly 60 minutes. Phew! Now I need a nap!

I wonder if anyone would miss me if I close my door and put my head down on my desk for a quick nap? emoticon

Looking forward to hitting the treadmill tonight for a 2 hour stint as well. Unless it's still nice out when I get home...I may just hit the roads around my house. All this fresh, sunny air is so invigorating!

Keep on Sparkin' Friends!
