Hiking Reality Check
Monday, October 11, 2010
Yesterday my husband and I went hiking up Mount Monadnock in New Hampshire. It was a lot of fun, the fall colors were amazing. You could even see Boston from one point. The weather was perfect. AND my Bodybugg said I burned over 1200 calories during the hike.
But MAN, was it hard! Over my fitness level a bit? Yep. It was a little discouraging since I'm doing P90X with the Brazil Butt Lift (all leg workouts) for the past month. I was still the slow one, I was still super short of breath at a few points, and that mountain kicked my butt going up and down. Going up was like stepping up huge boulders like an extra hard stair climber, and going down... my legs were shaking just standing in one spot and not moving, so you can imagine how going down was :)
I'm so glad I did it and accomplished it, and I burned so many calories! But next time I plan on kicking the mountains ass and not the other way around. But maybe in the Spring :P
Not sure why it keeps loading sideways!
