Oh I went hiking after work yesterday with my best friend. 4.5 miles in about 90 minutes. I went on a different trail then I usually use and it had a lot more uphill parts and down hill parts so both the front and back of my legs are super tired. I'm glad I went because it was beautiful and peaceful and I saw 2 deer and the trail was around a lake. I'm probably goping to do it again Wednesday. Then this weekend is my big back packing trip. I am very nervous I got a trail map of where we are going. Imaging a big V with a little v next to the top of it. That is its grade or slope. So at the beging it is all down hill and then it cuts very sharply up hill at the top of this will be our camp. Then in the morning on our hike out will will go down than up a little so not too much gradiant change. My thinking is if I went hiking yesterday and was super sore how much worse is it going to be with a stupid 20 pound pack on going on a maximum 30%/50LF grade . Ugh seriously just ugh.


On a happier note I am under 160 pounds for the first time in like 7 months!!! I'm hoping to be 150 by race day totally do able if I lose 2 pounds a week. 


*Accountability I had egg drop soup this weekend very unvegan and I had a little honey mustard last night because I didn't know it was made with mayonaise until after I ate some of it.
