I am usually pretty diligent to follow my training plan. I mean you pay someone to help you reach your goals, so it only makes sense to do what they say. But the social fun-loving side of me needed to be outside. 

So I cheated. I dusted off the snow shoes and headed for the hills for a day of delight. Breathing in that fresh mountain air, spending time with friends, and just being outside brought a smile to my face. 
Tomorrow it is back to the gym.
