Back Hitting the Trail

Monday, January 13, 2014

Walked home today. It has been 3 weeks since the last time I walked home and even though I continued to walk both outside and inside during that time I was still slightly out of shape for the hills that are in the route I walk home. I actually had to stop a couple of times to catch my breath because my heart was pumping so hard. Wow, what a workout but it felt great. And it was weird - have you ever felt like you were moving in slow motion? Well that is exactly how I felt walking home. I wore my hiking boots because of the snow but my feet were KILLING ME in those boots. I will not be wearing them tomorrow or ever again unless it snows a ton again. I couldn't get them off fast enough by the time I finally arrived home and I didn't think I could stand on my feet ever again they hurt that bad. But after about 30 minutes I was raring to go again and I ended up doing my last 2,000 steps while finishing "The African Queen" in the basement. Good movie. Up next "Eragon" which I have never seen before.

For dinner tonight I had a huge salad of mixed greens. Really getting into the salad thing. Had my cup of black beans (my personal favorite) on top and DD had a single sardine left from her lunch so I chopped it up and added to my salad too. Well guess what does not taste good together? Yep, sardines and beans. Ate it anyway but I certainly learned not to do that ever again.

    LOL. I thought you were going to say the sardines didn't go with the salad, but I was wrong.

    LOL Walking in quicksand is exactly what I felt like this morning. LOL

    You did fantastic! Proud of you my friend.

    P.S. I could have told you that sardines don't go well with beans.

    You made me laugh out loud talking about the sardines and beans mix. My hat is off to you for eating the mixture anyway.
