I was lazy and slept in this morning. Plus, I knew the weather was going to be beautiful and I wanted to run outside.
My five-year old was spending the morning with her cousin, so I quickly made an executive decision to take my big kids on a hike. Kinda of like skiing is our winter family thing, hiking is our summer family thing. When I heard Annie say to Carter, "lets run up this mountain", I swear I heard heavenly anglers singing. We had a super fun hike up to the Battlecreak water falls. It was awesome to see so many moms and kids having a good spring break!
For my run this evening, I had planned on having my son side his bike with me, but he had a flat tire is it was going to take awhile to fix. We were both sad he couldn't come. Now his bike is fixed and he can come next time.
5.3 miles around the 'hood. I really tried to focus on form and step counts, but it made me feel vey floppy and uncoordinated. It was definitely a progression run. Big hill first mile, then I finally started to warm up. Once I got going faster, I had a hard time holding the pace-lack of fitness!
When I got home, I grabbed my son and 5 year old daughter and headed over to the baseball field. I took my shoes off and we ran 2 laps around the field. I've never run barefoot before. I ran more on the balls of my feet than on my heels. It was a rather exhilarating experience. Plus I love running with two of my kids.
At home I did the following:
Walking lunges back and forth across my back yard
10/side to side lunges
20 B6 on Bosu
Foam roll and stretch
