I’m Happy When I’m Hiking

Tomorrow I have plans to go hiking with some friends. I haven’t seen these friends in a long while, and it’s been even longer since I’ve hiked, so tomorrow will be a lot of fun!

It’ll also be a fabulous workout. Lately, most of my exercise has been in the form of running – which is great – but when you do the same workout all the time your body gets used to it and doesn’t continue to progress and change. My running routes are always different in length and terrain so they’re not exactly the same, but hiking is a big diversion from my recent norm. It’s good to throw your body a curve ball once in a while and keep it guessing.

Not to mention that changing up your routine will keep you engaged mentally in addition to physically.

I have no idea how long or far we’ll hike, or what the terrain will be like. All I know is that we’re putting on our gear and heading out after breakfast.

And it will be awesome.

I hope the rest of you are doing fantastic things with the rest of your holiday break… that is, if you’re lucky enough to still be on a break!

    Sounds like fun. I keep wanting to take a half-day hike, but it is so hard to find the time to do it.
