Awesome Fitness Day Yesterday!

Thursday, March 28, 2013

OMG, we had such a great hike yesterday. TC mapped out a new route so off we went. We met our friend "Y" from the fitness center. She's half my age and in twice as good shape! But she's the nicest person and this is the second week we've hiked with her.

This was the first time we'd taken the Water Falls trail!

This picture cracks me up. Y NEVER misses an opportunity to pose! She's lost 40 pounds so I can't say I blame her for being proud!

So we ended up doing 6 miles and 95 floors according to my fitbit. Seeing these pictures makes me realize I need to buy new clothes that actually FIT. The jeans are two sizes too big (I only use them for hiking) and the jacket is actually an old one of TC's. So if he's going to continue taking pictures (which he will) I need to look like I've lost weight.

After hiking for three hours we came home for a bit and then I went back into town for Women Run Arkansas. I ended up doing another 4 miles. We did our "magic mile" where you are timed, and I knocked a minute off my mile! I completed it in 11 minutes, 29 seconds.

So for the day over 10 miles and 25,000 steps. Don't know if I'm losing any weight but YES, I am definitely fitter!

Today is PowerPump but not with the awful instructor of last week. Then TC and I might walk for a few miles on the city trail. I bought a ton of fresh veggies yesterday so today I have the happy problem of deciding how to fix them.

Have a Sparktacular day, everyone!!!

    I am extremely inspired by how strong you are and how much endurance you have! Wonderful!

I didn't notice any loose clothes; I just thought you looked great. Very fit and nimble!

P.S. Your brilliant name suggestions for Nancy's flying pig puppet just cracked me up!!
