Monday, I walked with the kids and dogs about 1 ½ miles, I like to get them out and as active as possible. It’s so easy for us to become sedate this time of year. Did my 100 push-ups, yippee! I also worked on climbing that rope that’s hanging from my tree.
Tuesday, did my 100 push-ups again, so love it once the last push-up is done for the day. Ran 5.1 miles with Ken and our dogs, Faith used the elliptical, she didn’t want to brave the cold. I can so understand as many times I have felt the same, sometimes going for a run is the last thing I want to do.
I think the rope is laughing at me; it may be tougher than I am.
Wednesday, I did P90X Core Synergistics, has been too long since the last time I did this workout. You really do workout in these training sessions, and you often have sore muscles afterwards. I was also able to fit in Yoga and my 100 push-ups. I felt good with my accomplishments for this day.
Thursday, I was really sore from the P90X Synergistics from Wednesday, each step was painful. So I stretched carefully and had a nice long soak in an Epsom salt bath. AAHHHH, Relief! By the time my husband was home I felt good enough for a run, but it was nice and slow and only 3.8 miles.
Friday, I gave my body a much needed break.
Saturday, we went to Callaway Gardens for a nice run with two of the kids and their bikes, and the dogs of course, they would so hate to be left out. The kids road their bikes, as we ran, we were a little worried how well this would work. We thought it maybe difficult for the bikers as they would have to go slow for us old runners. We were happy to see it worked out perfectly; the kids were able to go pretty easily along with us. While we ran are long run of 13.27 miles, it was an enjoyable morning we all had fun and think will do this again. I like to get our children involved as much as we can, but for long runs this maybe the only way for a while.
Sunday, I had a nice day with my family, all our children were here, so love it when we are all together. The only thing else I did was worked on that rope in my tree, I hope I can climb it soon. Wesley gave me a few pointers will see if it helps.
Remember try to stay as active as you can without over doing it, and always try and make it fun for all. You don’t have to log lots of miles or swim tons of laps. Look for things that you like to do and do them often, and try new things often. You never know if you’ll like something if you never try it. So be active and have fun with your family and friends.
Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.
