I think when you work out, it is important that you don't get bored or tired. If you get bored with your workout, you are less likely to look forward to working out and your motivation will drop. I love running, but even running can get boring if you run the same route every day, or if you do it all of the time and don't do anything else with it.

Near our house is a trail that goes along old railroad tracks. It is beautiful and a wonderful walk. Jeff and I walked with the dogs twice. Once south, through a train tunnel built in the 1800's and once north. Both times we did about 4-4 1/2 miles walking and it was very enjoyable!

Today though, we biked it! I had a run this morning that was about 2 1/2 miles and then this afternoon we stuffed our bikes into the car and headed over. We biked about 6 1/2 miles total and it was wonderful! It wasn't has hard of a workout as I get when I run because it is fairly level, but it was so neat to bike it. We really enjoy doing this together and it was a great way to condition. It was a great way to do an exercise without getting bored of my normal routine.

Now if I can only find someone to run it with me...

What a pretty looking trail! It looks like a lot of fun to both bike and walk there. !
