I had the most wonderful weekend ever with my favorite ladies! We went camping (yea, we’re tough), built all our own fires with damp wood and without lighter fluid (except for the last fire and even our kindling was wet!), and went on an amazing hike.
The picture of our feet was on the top of one of the Blue Ridge Mountains last Saturday, about a 1.7m hike up from the parking lot. Since we hiked from our camp site, it was about 5.5 miles round trip. Since it wasn’t a super loooong hike, my friend and I went for a little run up the mountain… I’m guessing it was about a 4 mile run total. Either way, I’m really sore!
Camping with a bunch of girls was such an amazing experience, as we were all out their to prove to our men that we would survive, not starve, and actually sleep well. I can’t speak for the rest of the girls, but I did all three. Quite well. And even got a “I’m proud of you” out of my man for our awesome camping abilities!
Of course, we all missed our guys on the trip and talked non-stop about them… whether married, engaged, or dating.
The second picture is our feet when we had an accidental detour to Colonial Williamsburg as we were looking for a bathroom pit-stop. Of course, none of us complained and bought sandwich at the Cheese Shoppe!
Back to fitness… it was really great to switch up the running and biking and enjoy some hiking. It took us awhile to hike the trail, and I can definitely feel it in my legs today! Tonight I’m going to bike and spend some time in the weight room trying to strengthen my core doing the V-sit and planks… any other ideas to help me strengthen my core?
