The Bloke and I opted for some of our local bike/walk paths for our Saturday fitness walk and, wow, what a difference hills make.
Our usual path is absolutely gorgeous but also flat. Locally we have quite a few more hills, so while we didn't get as much of the scenery, we got even more of the workout. Especially because our 'hour walk' turned into an hour and a half.
I am proud of us for being more fit, but wow. That walk took a lot out of me. I also wore a sweater, too, because it was cold when we started, so I was very yucky when we got home.
So, what's 'nothing quite like it'?
I swear, there is nothing quite like the clean feeling you have after you take a shower or bath after getting all gross like that. A usual shower or bath is good, but there is just that extra level of refreshment when you're getting truly clean.
I lurve it. Mmmmm. It makes the hard walk, protesting muscles and sweat all worth it.
