Today is an exciting day for me - my kids are all going away for the weekend!! Having a weekend alone is a very rare luxury for Steve and I, and this weekend will be far from quiet and relaxing.
Tonight is another bootcamp. Tomorrow, my 5K at 8am followed by a day of shopping and walking around Eureka Springs, followed by an evening out with some friends. Sunday will start out with some yoga and then FINALLY a little quiet time before heading out to pick the kids up.
I have to admit, I'm a little nervous with as much as we've got planned for tomorrow. After my first 5K, I had to spend the day on the couch because I literally couldn't move from the pain. Planning a day out walking up and down hills after this 5K hopefully won't be a disaster.
Yesterday was a good day. I took the kids swimming at the local pool. It was nice to get into the water with my 2 year old - and amazing at how much I got to work out while having fun. The pool has 2 huge water slides, and in order to ride them - you have to walk up 2 flights of stairs. Well, that in itself becomes a good workout after the first half dozen times...but add in carrying a 35lb two year old up the stairs and the workout is increased 3 fold. I carried her up the stairs about 10 times. By the time we left, my legs felt like they do after bootcamp..LOL
When we got home we all needed a nap. After waking up, eating dinner, and watching TV for a while I decided to go to Wal-Mart at 10pm. My brother and I walked around Wal-Mart for a while, and I picked up Jillian Michael's Yoga DVD. Being that I'm not going to be able to attend anymore yoga classes at 5am because of Steve working nights - I figured I'd do the next best thing and get a DVD. My plan is that every morning, when I get up, I will start my day with a good yoga workout.
Ok, so there's my plans for the weekend. I will let you know how the 5K goes tomorrow. Everyone send me good vibes that I not only get through the 5K in a better time than my first race, but also that I'm able to enjoy a good day out after I get through it.
Till next time. ;)
