Just sayin' that tonight I spontaneously decided it would be cool to walk up to my son's school (a little over 2 miles with major hills) to watch his football game rather than driving, To my chagrin the hubs took me up on the idea so off we went with our metal framed stadium seats in tow. Dopey me, wore newer canvas tennis shoes without socks (it is still summer afterall) and my feet blistered but oh well; I soldiered up without complaint. The hills on the way to school are pretty steep and made for a good challenge. It took us about 35 to 40 mins to make the hike from home to the field. The hike home was all down hill and shaved off about 7 mins.
During the entire hike, both ways, there was plenty to talk about and motor mouth here just kept on chatting, not missing a beat, the entire way without sucking wind. Now on the other hand, the hubs... not so much. His breathing was a bit labored and I could tell he was really working to talk in sentences. I just want to say that my hubs does his own version of an exercise routine not so faithfully each day but it seems its more than what I do. I pretty regularly do my WATP dvds, usually the 2 miles at a time, and I dance 3 nights a week. I am sooooo proud of my ability to do tonight's hike with such ease and I am cheering for me inside where it matters most!! I can't wait to outdo myself next time!
Post script---- My son's team won in overtime! This was his first time as a varsity kicker and wouldn't you know it, the pressure was on.
