It's because I just can't pose for pictures. After our intense hike today, I wanted a photo, naturally! So I handed the camera to hubs, and tried my best to look semi-normal for at least one. Epic Fail. Let's try to guess what I was thinking here:
|Whining. Typical. "I'm not ready to take a picture yet!"|
|All smiles. We got this, right?|
|"One more? Cool. Let me show you my neck."|
|"Bored. Let's try something FUN!"|
|"What? There aren't cameras on me from each angle?"|
Look at my hubs in green, cool as a cucumber. He's done this before, this posing for blog photos thing. Old pro.
Anyway, we had an amazing morning hike today. I'm loving have guests stay with us, we're basically half on vacation ourselves, since we get to go exploring mid-week! We hiked the Gahuti Trail on Fort Mountain State Park. Our friend was blazing the way at lightning fast speeds, but it felt great. We cut 30 minutes off our last time (in June) and finished the 8.77 miles in 3 hours, 15 minutes. Boom.
Finished the day with a sandwich from Arby's. I got curly fries, duh. I'm going to start catching up on work for the rest of the afternoon, and rest my legs. I had back to back tough workouts: yesterday was 10 mile run, today was almost 9 mile hike. My little legs deserve a rest!
What's your favorite place to hike in the world?
I love this trail, since it's close to our house and just difficult enough to be really interesting. I would love to try more hiking on the Appalachian Trail. A woman set the world record for fastest time hiking it yesterday--41 days!
Do you ever have back to back tough workouts, or have a rest in between?
I try to have a rest day in between tough workouts or long runs, definitely. Today was an exception, but tomorrow will be a rest day, or maybe just a little yoga thrown in to stretch it all out.
