We were very pleased to get a decent snowfall at the beginning of this week and made sure we took advantage of it before it melted away.
Here's how the week went:
|All dog parks should be so fabulous and forested|
|Very, very happy girl|
|C'mon, let's go!|
...and then an evening out with my son to cross something off The List:
|Hey! Get down from there!|
The Harlem Globetrotters! Seeing them live has been on my wishlist since I was a little kid back in the mid-1970s. So you can imagine how excited I was to pick up a couple of tickets on a Groupon deal for this game. And it was just as silly as I expected it would be. Even better that I had a 12-year-old boy to enjoy the show with :-)
Sunday - 1.4K dog walk, a ton of housework, 2K dog park walk...
|Walking home from the dog park. Stella loves to stop and play in the snow. |
I love to take pictures of her. But you knew that already.
...then later had to use all of my self-discipline to head out the door for C25K week3 run3 (2.4K). I came really close to putting this off until another day, but Stella shamed me into it. Well, actually, she was fast asleep on the floor - all 4 legs twitching in a doggy dream, drooling - but jumped up like a shot when I happened to walk near the front hall. I figured that if she could be raring to go so quickly after being so heavily asleep, then I could put a little effort into my evening. Whatever gets you out the door, I guess.
And that led me to my first experience with running on snowy sidewalks. What a workout!
|Believe it or not, I am glad that I am doing this run|
|Post run. Had to wake her up to go to bed.|
Monday - Curves + boot camp #13 (2 mins speed skating, 1 min jumping jacks, 60 leg lifts each side, 200 crunches, 30 squats + 90 arm curls with 8 lb weights, 2 x 35s planks). Followed by a slow 250m in the pool.
|Tired. Very tired. But just remembered that tomorrow is REST DAY and managed a small smile.|
Tuesday - Ow, my butt. Hobbling around like an old woman after last night's boot camp.
Wednesday - My butt is still tight, but I got in my C25K run - Week 4, Run 1: run 3mins, walk 90sec, run 5 mins, walk 2-1/2 mins, repeat. Covered 2.9K. I have never, ever run 5 continuous minutes before in my life. So, I am spending tonight patting myself on the back. Repeatedly.
Thursday - 2.8km walk during the day. Zumba + Curves workout + boot camp (2 mins speed skating, 110 leg lifts each side, 100 situps with 8lb medicine ball, 200 crunches, 50 squats, 100 arm curls with 8 lb weights). Holy moly.
Friday - PA Day for the kids and I took the day off work. Spent a verrrrry lazzzzzzy day but did get them to the park for a couple of hours, and did C25K week 4 run 2 before bed. Not a bad way to spend a day.
How was your week?
