I am fermenting in my sweat and after lunch is over, I hope people stay far away. I am only armed with a travel size deodorant and paper towels to freshen up. We walked at lunch again today and I was not prepared for today's journey.
I wasn't planning on walking today. I was just going to sit at my desk and surf the net to catch up with my blogging buddies. Staci was not having it, she brought in reinforcements and I was pushed out the door. Stephanie another coworker of ours was telling us about her walking route....a 4 mile route. I was thinking "Oh. HELL. NO." Staci's eyes lit up and she was determined that we were going to do this walk. She is flipping crazy. Since I am kind of afraid of her, I went. The three of us set out and 53 minutes later, we returned to the office. Four miles in in 53 minutes. I do not even run that fast.
Note to self: Bring workout clothes to walk in or I will be sitting in sweaty clothes for the rest of the day. Those girls are not out for a leisurely stroll...they mean business.
I do have to say that the route is awesome! If it is one thing that I like about my job, it is the endless opportunities to get exercise. The last half of the walk was a pretty steep hill. Even though today's walk just about killed me, I can see this being an enjoyable workout when I am in a bit better shape.
In other news, I stumbled on to a new website to help track my fitness goals. I am probably the last person in the world to hear about Spark People, but I am finding it really cool! It is a site that tracks my nutrition and fitness as well as other goals that I set for myself. I am completely obsessed with Spark Points which are little rewards for visiting the site. I don't think you win anything from the points, but I still like collecting them. It is the little things in life that make me tick.
I am doing my push ups and abs tomorrow. I am behind.
