Day 868

Saturday, February 08, 2014

Went out snow shoeing with my brother today. I use my dad's old military surplus snow shoes which are these clunky metal things. Well, today I decided to try my brother's. Wow, what a difference. His are much lighter. The ones I normally use are better for breaking trail, but for speed and effort his are superior. We wet out after lunch with my parents. I made us roast beef, roasted root vegetables and stuffed baby bell peppers. It sounds weird, but I stuffed them with liver sausage and seasoned cream cheese. Yum!

I think tomorrow should be a recovery day. I have been averaging close to 11 miles a day this week. I will still get in 120 minutes, but might not push myself to do much more. 132 days to go until I get to 1,000 days on my fitness streak of 120+ minutes of intentional fitness every single day.

    I get 120 minutes most days but sure enjoy my day off which is usually Sunday. I still do something I just do it a little slower - maybe an hour's walk at a slower pace.

    That sounds so fun! Kind of difficult to use snowshoes here in Miss. but then again, who says you need snow to walk in snowshoes?!

    Leslie, you are AMAZING. Great idea to take a rest day. You sure as heck deserved it.

Anytime I complain and moan about walking around my neighborhood (at least today it's sans snow, but we're expecting more on Monday), I'll think of you snowshoeing. Simply incredible!!!

You are an inspiration to me. Thank you!

Annie T.
