Workout Wednesday: Go for a hike!

Aaaaah fresh air. What a rejuvenating feeling to spend the day outside hiking or what I like to call it, just exploring! My favorite workouts are the ones when you don’t even realize you are exercising because you are having fun. And hiking is definitely one of those kind of workouts! And that is exactly what I did today, on this spectacular Workout Wednesday!

I found this calculator on self.com that calculates how many calories you burn while hiking according to your weight and the duration.

I burned 1,098.4 calories! I’ll take that any day!

My go to place is a Ohiopyle, a nearby state park. It is not only gorgeous but it has a ton of different trails for biking and exploring! I spent about two and a half hours up there today with my boyfriend hiking the trails and even put my feet in the water. Just for a little bit…it was COLD! The weather could not have been more perfect, high 70s and sunny with some clouds. Here are some photos from the day!

Even if you are from a different area than I am that is no excuse not to go hiking! Look up state parks in your area or other places that have trails nearby where you live and just have fun exploring! I suggest taking a buddy with you so you aren’t alone. And watch your step for snakes and other creepy crawlies like my worst enemy, big spiders!
