Poudre River Trail

My husband and I went on the nicest walk this morning. We walked 6 miles round trip down the Poudre River Trail here just on the edge of town. It was beautiful! There is an old restored barn, a pond covered with hundreds of geese and ducks, birds, eagles, hawks ,squirrels that aren't the least bit afraid of humans and an old school house. I'm sure there is much more on the trail but I didn't want to go any farther than 3 miles in one direction and that was pushing it I wanted to be able to make it back to the Jeep without my husband having to drive around and get me. At first my shin started burning so I slowed down and then before I knew it we were walking along at a really good pace and it didn't hurt anymore. We had good, all be it halted, conversation and got to spend some really good quality time with each other. I will say though that I am very sore tonight and I'm sure that it will be a little worse tomorrow. We decided that we will do this every Sunday since it is the only day of the week that we get to spend a day off together. When we got home I realized that I had forgotten to weigh in so I won't be able to do that until tomorrow but that's alright, I'm not worried. I've been very good and stuck with my plan and water and exercise. I think I'm doing rather well. We'll see in the morning.
