First off, thanks for sharing your fitness horror stories yesterday! Keep them coming. They’re hilarious!
Apart from my cardiobarre experience, all of the other workouts over the past few days have been wonderful. The weather outside over the weekend was peeerfect for a run, so that’s what Anthony and I did!We covered about six miles on the trail near my parents’ house. Yesterday I talked about how many times I’ve run Shelby Park, and today I’m thinking about how many times I’ve run this trail (Tim’s Ford State Park)… locals: Any running trails (preferably paved) between Nashville and Winchester that you would recommend? I love my regular routes, but a trail of scenery would be nice!Other weekend adventures included some antique shopping. I’m calling this a workout because squeezing and stretching ourselves between aisles was like a mini yoga session.On Sunday, Anthony and I went for a hike! We’ve been wanting to do the Walls of Jericho trail for months but have been held up by rain a few times. Glad we were finally able to get out there!The trail is over seven miles long and has some serious drops and turns. The forest was covered in leaves, too, which made it extra challenging to find your way and keep your balance. Anthony and I tried to keep up a brisk pace but the leaves slowed us down! We finished in about four hours. Anthony probably could have finished in three if he was hiking solo but I slowed us down with my leaf and bug fear + blog photos
I guess I’m not afraid of standing on rickety tree trunks over water, though.The turnaround point of this hike is the best. It looked so grey compared to the lush green it was when we saw it in the summer!All that hiking made us hungry. Later in the day we headed to a Mufreesboro hot spot for some Thai food. Hit the spot.And now we’re all caught up!
