Return of GOYA

In the midst of all this house-buyin’ and movin’ biznizz, I’ve neglected my hiking legs – I haven’t set foot on a real trail in five weeks! Preposterous. My solution is to reinstate GOYA for the time being, so I’ll at least have some motivation to get out in the neighborhood.

Go go GOYA

To shock lazy legs back into action, dust off your multi-day backpack and fill it with Heavy Things. Grab your dog and an mp3 player full of classics. Find the longest, steepest hill close to your house and walk up and down, up and down. (Try not to think about the fact that you look like a bit of a tool.) Tada! Happy, shaky legs.

Sightings: 2 rabbits, 1 bald eagle, 3 furry coyote poops. Be careful, bunnies!!

    Good on you. I’ve start back exercising last week too and am just making sure I do something every day – depending on how I feel it might be a walk, riding the exercise bike, free weights or yoga. Wish my feet were up to hiking :-(

    I sometimes load my pack and go to the football stadium at our local high school. People sure look at you funny going up and down, but my legs and butt can kick theirs any day ;)
