5 things I learned while hiking

Lately, I have been on a mission to be more active. One of the ways I have been doing are small workouts in the mornings. Last week I told you about the Couch to 5K that I started. This week, I replaced one of my workouts with a hike, and I loved it. The scenery was amazing, and I want to go hiking more often. 
I've went to this particular trail before, so I had an idea of what was coming. But nonetheless, here are 5 things I've learned while hiking/jogging. 
It's okay to stop to catch your breath. 
Sometimes we need a break. And It's 100% okay. Allow yourself to take a break. Those hills, or that 5 minute jog are tiring. And you are already doing amazing, need a break take it, we wouldn't want you to get hurt. 
Hiking buddies are amazing
Workout buddies are amazing period. They motivate us, we motivate them. We have a buddy to talk and catch up. So next time you are hiking or jogging or walking or gyming it grab a friend. 
Enjoy the view.
Gahh!!! All of the hiking trails have amazing views. You see nature at it's best. So take a break, stare at the ocean, listen to the birds, see the plants. They are beautiful. We live in fast-pace world, sometimes we forget to see the beauty outside, these trails are the perfect time to do so. 
Life is like a hiking trail.
Sometimes steep, sometimes up hill, sometime downhill. rocky, hard, but at the same time beautiful. 
Don't ever give up!
Whatever you do, don't give up,keep going . Those hills are killer. You might get out of breath on those steep steps. Your feet might hurt, but I promise you when you finish the trail you will feel good, and it will all be worth it. 
What do you love most about hiking, or working out?

  1. These were great! And lovely photos

  2. Love this! I love hiking. It's such a great workout! The views are amazing too. I like hiking at Griffith Park where you can see all of the Valley, LA, and the Hollywood sign. There are benches with views that I stop and stretch or just sit and think at. It's kind of therapeutic or meditative I guess. The ocean views where you were look amazing!

  3. Hiking is awesome! I remember when I used to live in Germany that they would have groups that would travel all over Europe to go hiking and you would get a metal for completing! Thanks for sharing :)


  4. Thank you Kallie, it was really pretty. :)

  5. I'm from the L.A area, well like 30 mins from Downtown, but I have yet to go to the Griffith Park. I really want to go, and do the Hollywood Sign hike and also Runyon Canyon. Those are on my Hiking bucket list. lol. The views are amazing. :)
    We went to the Trump Trails in Palos Verdes. :) i love it because of the Ocean. :)

  6. Wow that's amazing. I bet there are a lot of beautiful places in Europe to hike and to take in. :)
    Thanks for visiting. :)


I would love to hear your thoughts!! :)
