Five Common Backpacking Mistakes: Lessons Learned Summiting Mt. Adams

About ten days ago, I completed my first backpacking trip. My boyfriend and I, with a couple close friends, embarked on a 12-mile, one night, expedition to summit Mt. Adams, a dormant volcano in Washington with an elevation of 12,272 vertical feet.

This was my first overnight backpacking trip, and I wasn’t sure what to expect. So, as soon as I booked my ticket, I started to do my research. Of course, I turned to Pinterest to learn all I needed to know.

{Guest Post} Outdoor Wednesday WOD by Lori Lucile Fit

Hey there friends! Happy Workout Wednesday! Today, I’ve got a special treat for you: a guest post from one of my online fitness buddies, Lori. Lori and I met a couple months ago and her positive, empowering energy drew me in immediately. She’s an incredible woman AND personal trainer and nutrition coach. Enjoy her AWESOME workout, and be sure to connect with her!

Hello Fit Friends!  I am thrilled that Katherine asked me to do her Wednesday WOD.  Since you probably don’t know me much, I will just tell you that I love being outside.  I firmly believe that I am solar powered so anytime I can take my workout outside I will do it.  Since it’s summer here in Wisconsin that’s easy to do for cardio.  Walking, running, biking or swimming are just some of the things that are pretty easy to get in for my cardio days.  

But strength?  

Well, I’m a bit embarrassed to admit I tend to be a gym rat.  Partly because I live in an old house with limited space and partly because I live 3 blocks from the gym I workout (and work) at.  But when Katherine asked me to do an at home workout for you, I thought, “this is a great opportunity!”  You see, I too am a personal trainer and nutrition coach and am always telling my clients, “If it’s important to you, you will find a way, if not, you won’t.”  

It’s time for me to prove this.

You will see I got pretty creative on my deck with this workout, using only what I had around the house.  And in case you’re wondering, I didn’t buy those wine bottles special.  🙂

Follow along with me for a quick 5 minute burn; repeat 3-6 times through to get to a 15-30 minute workout!  

Thanks Lori! That was SUCH a fun one!

As always, make sure to warm up and cool down for 5-10 minutes before and after any workout.
