Gearing up for the 10K tomorrow, and then the girls and I are going to run a bit further. I want to do ten. It will be the first time I’ve broken double digits since I injured my knee in Disney marathon last month. I can’t wait! I hope that it goes easily.
Today I worked the core and arms. Skipped leg work since I have the race in the AM. Have to figure out where to sneak that in a few times a week. Maybe Tuesdays and Sundays would work.
Then I spent the morning playing with the young one. We colored, played Barbies, hide and seek and doctor. She is a blast! Sometimes I wonder what goes through her head while we are playing.
Today’s Fun Fitness idea: Work out at home with babe there!
I had a good time today doing my workout with her. I would do some core work on my ball and then we would put her on it and roll her around. I’d do some bicept curls and then we’d put her on the mat and pretend her dolls were going to sleep. I like working out at home on Fridays, but I have a tough time getting mybutt in gear Friday mornings since I don’t run.
If you want to work out at home cheaply you can purchase;
a stability ball
Start with some side crawls and jump roping to get the blood going. Older kids might like to do this with you! Move on to a mix of core work on the ball and weight work. I will post some great exercises next week, I am out of time today.
While you work out, have the kiddo work out with you! Make a game of it. Today I did the core work on the ball and then would put her on the ball and roll her back and forth. Or we would roll the ball back and forth. It was a lot of fun.
In between bicep curls and tricep dips we colored and played barbies.
So, off to get some things done around the house. I am hoping to do the 10K in 54 minutes. I should be able to; I did it earlier this week. Then we will run another 4. Yikes! Hoping my knee holds up . . .
Until then, happy running!
