Very FUN day of workouts

Today was awesome - a beautiful, warm early fall day with a heavy fog this morning. Started off the day with a warmup run around the cross country course followed by my first "hill workout" - 8 times up and down a hill by the duckpond. I liked that it was totally different than anything I've done to this point and it definitely pushed me out of my comfort zone, which is something I need to do more of. Then this afternoon I had a good all-around leg workout that included a lap of lunges around the gym track. I warmed up and cooled down on the bike so I wonder if that will help keep me from getting too sore - maybe it'll flush the muscles??

(Duckpond...near the scene of the crime...err...I mean hill. Found this photo online...can only do so much text before I have need for an image!!)

It was such a great afternoon, I parked by Sharkey's, walked to Harding Ave Elementary to get the kids, then we all walked to the library and back to stock up on books. Next on the agenda: hamburgers on the grill!

Yeah! Good day. Wonder how the bod will feel tomorrow??!!
