80 degrees at 7:30

I went on my first walk this evening for the Couch Potato Workout! I had to wait until just before dusk, since it was pretty hot today. Even still, it was about 80 degrees at 7:30, which is when I set out!

My mom told me about a loop path near our house that takes about a half hour to walk, so that's what I did. It took me about 40 minutes, but I wasn't walking as fast as someone else might. Still, I came home all sweaty, so I'd say that was a pretty good workout!

The path was paved and surrounded by gorgeous Oregon countryside. Along part of the way, I was greeted by the smell of fresh blackberries (which is actually a weed here, if you can believe that)! I was tempted to stop and pick some, but I kept going.

All in all, I thought it was a doable workout and definitely made me tired out by the end, which seems just about right for a workout. I'll try it again on Saturday.

My walk ended just as dusk was setting in. The temperature was finally cooler and I stretched and relaxed in the backyard for a bit before heading back into the house. It was perfect weather this evening!
