One hot hike!
Tuesday, July 06, 2010
DH and I did a 10 mile hike yesterday. It was a really hot day! Definitely hit the 90s and humid as well. I felt pretty good. I was definitely sweating a lot. I read today that fit people sweat more. That was interesting to see. DH sweats like crazy and he is very fit. So I guess that makes sense. My quads aren't sore at all today like they were after my hike a week ago.
We took the dog on the hike. That was a mistake. It was too hot for him. He was pretty unhappy on the descent. We had to stop for rest breaks for him several times. Finally we got to a brook and once he heard the water you could see that he was pushing to get to it. He walked right in to the water and sat down. It was pretty cute. He felt much better after that. DH did a little skinny dipping in the brook. I was too chicken. We didn't see any other hikers all day so I should have just gone for it!
After the hike we met DH's sister and her family at the local swimming hole. We just jumped right in the water while the dog relaxed on one of our beach chairs. He is a spoiled rotten pup and everyone was laughing about him sitting in the chair rather than lying down on the rocks.
We also played some badminton and volleyball and did a short night hike on the 4th - had a great view of some fireworks from above! It was a nice active weekend with great company.
