Hip hip hooray

I went to the lake this morning, by myself and walked 6 miles...OMG, I still cant even believe it myself. I brought a water bottle with me and used that as a weight and did arm lifts the bulk of the walk. I am sure I looked like a dork. This lake is a popular place to walk. There were a lot of people, walking, running, biking. It was a cool AM and it felt great. It is going to get warm so I had to get there early. It did take me 2 hours but that was ok, I never stopped and listened to my IPOD. I almost said walkman, lol. Aging myself again.  I put my Ipod, in my sports bra on one side, my cell phone in my sports bra on the other side. Them big ole sports bras do come in handy. I laughed at my daughter who would text me, and of course when that happens my cell phone vibrates...wahoooo. I told her thanks for all the text it made my walk more enjoyable. hehe.

Thanks for stopping by. Great job on the walk! We all look like dorks when we're working out but everyone is focused on themselves so don't think twice about it. I'm going to have to try that trick with the vibrating phone ;). Keep up the good work!

Awesome job! 6 miles!! I'm thrilled when I do 4 miles running/walking. :) And, I'm so jealous that you have nice places to walk! We've got the gym, no fancy parks or pretty lakes or anything...
