After digging my way out of the driveway yesterday, I threw the snowshoes into the car and headed up to Fitzroy Provincial Park. A New Year, new fitness tactics.
The park is an unknown jewel in the winter time. Some but very few actually use the park during this snowy season, and for those who don't, well shame on you.
There are cross country ski trails that are meticulously groomed and there are snowmobile trails, never do the two meet so you can ski without fear of being run over.
Recently due to the surge of snowshoer's in the area there are makeshift trails which are being well used. Yesterday I broke a few trails as well as followed a few too.
There was one point where I had to stop for a rest, my heart was pounding out of my chest...you just don't realize how much effort it is to slog through unbroken trails...(yes, I carry I.D. and have my cell phone with me...)
Another perfect picture of what you can see if you take the time....
Well, I'm headed out to shovel the driveway again (cross training) we had another big dump of snow last night and then I'll go back up to the park for another afternoon of cardio workout (snow shoeing).
Life's fun if you don't weaken,
