Life’s a Climb but the View is Great – your Free Friday workout

We did an awesome hike today with the dogs


We had a choice of the boundary track


The steep track

Of course we took the steep track


And Yep it was steep

Going up the dogs were bounding away

As it got tough I kept thinking

This is a million times better then any stairmaster or step ups


Just think about how good the legs are going to look and feel

We got to the top and the view was awesome

It was so worth it

The first thing I said was


“Lifes a climb but the view is great” – ha ha


It got me thinking that its kind of like weight loss and toning up

Its can be a tough climb with many obstacles to defeat

But once you get there its SWEET..and so worth it.

A “Priceless” feeling.


SO today’s workout is inspired by my hike

Strong legs and a Strong core and Shoulders for carrying a back pak
