I had all intentions of laying on my couch and feeling sorry for myself and watching movies all day yesterday. Instead, I found myself hiking on the Resevoir Trail around Hayward Lake.
Steve knew that was something on my list of wants. Knowing me as he does, he asked me yesterday if I wanted to, and how could I say no?? First off, I absolutely LOVE doing things like that with him, since most of my activity is solo. Second, I can see right through him to his wonderful heart of good intentions. So "yes" it was!
We had planned to go all the way around, which is 16 km. However... it's 16 km of insane trails, not city streets. We got an hour and twenty minutes in, when I could hear Steve panting and puffing behind me, and knew he was not going to make it. We turned around and headed back.
We were in the trails for 2 hours and 40 minutes if intense hiking. It was AWESOME!!! We got out just in time. There was a thunderstorm warning yesterday, and it hit when we were less than three minutes from driving away from the parking lot. It was so bad we had barely any visibility. Steve would have melted and been VERY upset to be caught in it. So it was a great thing that we turned around when we did.
I'm sore this morning. My hips and back are feeling it. I'm sure Steve is, too. I haven't talked to him yet, since I just got up. He's watching a football game in the living room so I came straight in here. But I'll be doping him up with ibuprofen, and see if I can get him out for a twenty minute walk to get the gunk out of his muscles. I doubt if he believes me that he'll feel better. He looked pretty skeptically at me last night when I mentioned it.
If you have issues, or baggage, you may be offended by what you read here. I work through my self loathing of my own fat, and my own fat issues, and I’m told this comes across as loathing all fat people. That is simply not the case.
Here I talk about my issues and my findings, without political correctness. I am not concerned with your issues, or your baggage, or what you may take from this. The title is "My Journey".
