.....you gotta make them COUNT! So instead of lounging around on the couch all day which I DESPERATELY wanted to do, I got geared up and drove to Herrick Lake out in Wheaton for some cross-country skiing!
The cold temperatures were not bothersome at all once I got moving especially since most of the trail was in the woods. I didn't work as hard as I should have- just an easy to moderate effort- and ended up going 4.57 miles in 1 hour. That's sloooooow (13:08 min/miles), so next time I definitely should work a little harder!
Looks like there are about 10-15 miles of trails so I have plenty of opportunity for future exploring!
