Kathy - Tromping

Hi Guys,  hope your day 2 has been great.  Mine has been so far.  The part of my fitness plan which I absolutely love is taking the dog for her daily tromp - is that a word?  I love getting outside some each day!  This has come as a surprise for me because given the choice I'd take a warm fire, a soft couch and a good book.

Tonight we took the beast to the lake because we thought the hill would be too much of a mess - rain on snow.  Turns out the park at the lake was a mess too - rain on snow and cold enough to make ice.  It was rather treacherous underfoot so we stayed under the trees as much as possible where it was a bit easier to walk.  We had to ford the road a couple times, which was an exciting adventure of traversing a sheet of ice covered with slush.  But I still loved it!  It was so cozy tromping through the trees. We could hear mighty wind blowing higher up the slope but it did not touch us.. The snowflakes floating in the air glinted in our headlamps - yet it was an adventure just to find a place to walk. So- a cozy adventure!  Didn't seem like much of a work out though - tonight it was just exercise for the soul.

'Night everyone - tomorrow is another day closer to reaching our goals!
