I am exhausted. I can't remember the last time I crammed so much activity into one weekend. The weather here was perfect (high's in the 60's!) so I had to take full advantage.
Saturday morning started off with a 6 mile run and 30 minute walk. That afternoon I persuaded my friend Jason into hiking my favorite trails at Blackwater with me.
We hiked the connector trail between Bear Lake and Krul lake, then back to circle around Bear Lake. I actually ended up running into some friends on the trail. I love that my friends are the type of people you 'bump into' in the middle of the forest.
Sunday morning I worked out at home with Tracy Mallet's F.I.T. workout for the second time and I can now say definitively this DVD burns more calories than any other's I've used. It is incredible.
It was also laundry day so I worked out in my Hello Kitty pajama's. #yolo
That afternoon I headed over to Jason's house to hang out for a bit. We headed to a nearby park that we passed on the way to Blackwater Saturday. I saw two kids playing on this crazy looking contraption and I absolutely had to try it. When we drove to the park we saw there wasn't a gate to get in, so we had to jump the fence like a bunch of hooligans.
It definitely took me about 5 minutes of trying before I figured out a way to get up there. I also tried to do a pull-up (failed) and after about 10 minutes of playing on the playground I was old lady sore. Hey, I worked out for 6 hours this weekend - I think that's a legitimate excuse! When Jason asked me what I was training before I was thrilled to pull out my favorite response, "Life!"
I managed to take a quick video while we were on the death-trap. I get dizzy just watching it.
When's the last time you hung out at a playground?
