What month is this?
I couldn’t believe my luck. On my day off, the weather decided to warm up to the mid 60s. What did I decide to do, go hiking! I wasn’t going to miss the opportunity to get outside in the sunshine in the middle of winter. Winter is tough season for me. I thrive in the outdoors and HATE being cold, so you can imagine how I feel being cooped up indoors for months and trying to stay warm. It’s also not good for my waistline–too much sitting, too much eating!
I was smart this time–I wore appropriate footwear–calf length water proof boots. They were a little too warm for the weather, but my feet and legs stayed dry as I sloshed through the mud, melted snow, streams, and left over ice all along the trail.
It had been so long since I hiked miles, up hills, down hills, that my calves are sore today. It’s awesome!
