This past weekend I went for a hike with a friend. We did two peaks (the one was only 0.6 miles in addition to what we were already doing): Porter and Cascade Mountains. They are 4,059 and 4,098 feet tall, respectively. In total, I think the hike was about 6.2 miles and we took 7 hours to do it. (That includes plenty of time at the top of each peak to relax, eat lunch, take pictures, etc.) Today, my quads are very sore. It was a killer workout but wow, do I love hiking!
I know I “burned” a billion calories while hiking, but afterwards I was sooooo hungry and I ate way more than I should have. (And, drank more wine than I should have, too.) I need to get the eating under control.
