I do, I feel that it's my best time because my schedule allows so much more freedom. Finding time during the school year to commit to an exercise regime is
I have a sister who teaches 4th grade in a nearby town. (Have I ever mentioned her? hmmmm ? I don't think I have. . . . but then again, I don't think she reads this, so I have no worries!)
We started out this week on Sunday walking up and down big hills on her road. We walked 4.5 miles and got quite a work out. So much so, she wanted to repeat it for the next day. . . did I tell you that she is NINE years younger than me. . . .? AND that NINE years means a lot of difference in ability to work out!
Anyway we did that for 3 days this week. She had to cancel on me again this morning. So now that my daughter is home from Texas, (did I mention that either? Well she is and she's already very fit and works out all the time during the school year, AND she is a teacher! YES I know, we have a lot of teachers in our family. . . but that's another story someday!)
So today we decide to take a different course. . . . the high school track! Yippee skippee. . . 4 times around makes one mile. . . simple! RIGHT? . . . . WRONG! We decide to add a little "umpf" to our work out and climb the bleachers also. . . . and not just once. . . .we go up them, down them, up them, down them, up them, and down them one more time. . . and then back around the track and repeat the bleacher routine for a total for FOUR times. By the time we walk there and home, we have put on 3.66 miles. (that's according to my Nike wristband that tells me how far I'm going and how many calories I've burned.)
Now I have to ask myself. . . is the walk up and down the hills better or worse than the walk up and down the bleachers. . . What do you think?
To add to all that exercising today, our cable went out around 11:00. Doesn't sound so bad does it?
So what . . . no TV. . . we can do that!!! But then my husband realized that the Tigers (as in Detroit) are playing at 1:00 and that tv better be back on!
Not only was the TV out, but the house phone AND the internet were down. . . Now you're messing with me!! NO internet all day? What's up with that?
We survived. . . there were games played, lots of cooking and preparing meals for a couple days, shopping done, and even a few naps were thrown in for good measure. Talk about dependence on the CABLE! It finally came back on around 5:45 and life is all good now. I can blog stalk a bit more today before I try to make something for school to share with you.
Ok, I'm done, go read someone else. . . and I will too!
