Great, really…got up with hubs…he swam, i did weights. i find that if i run first, getting to weights is harder to do than if i just get a little in and then run…plus, i think i found the secret to running with kids!!!! well, at least while kids are home on break and a mom only has like, 30 minutes or so, to get a run in. weights! yes, weights. i like to run with 2 pounds on each wrist/hand and another 1.5-2 on each ankle. before break, i would try to get one of these bad boy runs in maybe 1 time every couple of weeks or so. but i’m liking it. plus, when i factor in the temperature and humidity???? well, it’s a full body workout, let me tell you…noodle arms all around. there is no resting out there with weights on each hand! so, i definitely recommend going light – somewhere out there, trust me, what began as light is going to be kicking your ass. in fact, when i came into the driveway, which is long, i spied hubs behind me in his car, coming in from a store run, i guess (that’s code for cigarettes, i think), i was snot-rocketing and spitting alternately. and i didn’t care that his car was crawling behind me waiting for me to get out of his way. i was DONE. i had my own 4th of july display of bodily fluids spewing. nobody said running is genteel, right? i read my newest RW this afternoon while i ate lunch. Lance…i LOVE that guy. he described in his interview that he enjoys the torture that goes along with endurance sports. i wholeheartedly agree. there is no run too long, no temperature too hot or too cold that can stop me from getting out there & getting some fitness in! i LOVE it!
anywho…spent some great time with my daughter, watching her swim with her new barbie mermaid and sidekick dolphin. i relished in the fact that she wanted this as her end-of-school-year treat. i usually don’t indulge my children toooo much…i like to save toys & such for special occasions, but they do such an amazing job in school, given their hearing limitations, they deserve a reward. my older daughter opted for a day of lunch and a movie – she picks the restaurant, movie, AND gets to hold the popcorn! i love that she sees the value in doing something fun instead of buying something…else.
summer is here and i have tons of beach towels on top of my dryer to prove it! i love it. 🙂
