Since yesterday was our first anniversary, hubby and I planned a day of exploring around where we live. We decided to see Lake Conasauga, which was pretty near (we thought) to us, and would be a great place for me to relax, read a book, and get a tan while the hubster was fishing. Didn't go quite as planned, but we did have fun!
I may have had a little too much fun.
We started driving, on what was supposed to be a 25-30 minute journey. Half an hour in, I was excited. Music was pumping, the scenery was beautiful. Here's what we were looking at:
Another 20 minutes of driving, 2,000 feet of elevation, and subtract 15 degrees, it began to look more like this:
Yeah....I was getting a little nervous. Pretending to still be excited.....
I decided to give up on the prospect of tanning and swimming and focus on the scenery and cheering my hubs on while he caught vast amounts of HUGE fish. (He said I would get brownie points if I said he caught lots). Plus, we got a chance to walk around the lake, which was 1.25 miles around.
Then the wheels in my brain started turning...it's nice and cool up here.....I have running shoes on....we have all day to spend....Yes! A run!
Even though I was wearing some pretty uncomfortable old shoes, I managed to get a little over 12 miles in. Each loop I would stop, chat with hubby, have a bite of something to eat, and keep going. Perfect run! Plus, a swimming in a chilly lake afterwards = the biggest ice bath ever!
What was the best thing you did this weekend?
This lake day, of course! So happy to fit in a long run somewhere unexpected.
What's your favorite place to swim: ocean, lake, pool, river?
I lived in Hawaii for almost 10 years, and got so bored with being sandy all the time at the beach. So I would say that a nice outdoor pool is my favorite place to swim!
