My goal for the summer is to be outside and active in nature more often. I really love nature and it’s where I feel the most alive and joyful. I’ve not been feeling alive or joyful over the past couple days of being sick. There is nothing joyful about the stomach bug. Clearly, I need to be in nature more. The dirt would do me some good, I think!
The plan is to hike on Sundays as much as possible. My goal for the end of summer or early fall is to hike Mt. Washington. I haven’t hiked that mountain since 2008, so I think it’s a good goal. Jameson and I hope to get a few camping/hiking weekends in as well too! Since about 2004 I’ve been slowly checking off all the 4,000 ft mountains in NH. I would like to cross a few more off the list between now and the fall.
I think it’s really important to find hobbies and goals for myself that are not related to CrossFit. As much as I love training, working toward my goals in the gym, and the atmosphere of The Fort, I’ve been missing other forms of activity like biking and hiking. In the past, those kinds of things were my main sources of physical activity. It’s time to get back in the game. I am kind of scared of setting this goal and not following through. It’s really easy to let the time go by or let other “stuff” get in the way. So, if I decide to do something I must follow through with it. Decide and do!
What are your goals for being outside this summer? Let’s hold each other accountable!
