I’m finally getting excited about this fitness thing, and I feel like I’m settling into a routine. Yay me!
In preparation for a quick hiking trip at the end of this month, I’ve been hiking a local “mountain” after school. It’s a quick up and back with an elevation gain of a little under 400 feet. It’s a good workout, but it’s definitely no Mt. LeConte! On May 31 we will be doing the Alum Cave Bluff Trail up to LeConte Lodge for lunch–an elevation gain of about 2700 feet. I am SO excited, and this time, we are taking my hubby’s boys, Zach and Tucker, along with Zach’s gorgeous and super fun fiance. This will be her first trip and I’m happy to get to be the one to take her.
When I arrived home, I did the bodyweight exercises I had planned for myself. I did three rounds of 10 kettle bell swings, 15 squats, and 10 lunges per leg. I thought about going for a run, but a shower sounded better.
I have about 27 days to get in shape for this trip. I love setting goals for myself, planning an attack and executing that mother-lover! I know I won’t be in the shape I was in when we went in October, but I know I’ll be 27 days fitter than I am today.
Here are some pics you’ve probably already seen from my October trip.
Happy trails! 🙂
