I have found a few things to get me out of the house through Meetup.com (they have an app for the Iphone as well). Last monday I took Anissa to a wading pool where we met another mommy and her little girl. This wading pool is a lot warmer and Anissa loved it. We were going to go again this monday but the facility was closed due to my subject.
We have had a weird weather pattern going on. Rain, rain and more rain. All that rain led to the rivers flowing too high. Thursday the town of Canmore got hit with floods and they predicted that Calgary was going to get hit as well. The city did a good job and evacuated all the places they thought would flood thursday evening, by morning it was no joke. No human lives were lost that I am aware of, lots of damage though. The zoo got hit pretty hard, they managed to move most of their animals, but some birds refused to be moved and one peacock perished. Downtown got hit pretty hard as well, it still is not open to the public. I've been seeing pictures on facebook of friends' damage and it is unbelievable. Basements were right full and left a foot of sediment. The Stampede grounds were flooded as well and stampede is supposed to start next week. It's a big money attraction so they are focusing on getting that all cleaned up. It is amazing all the volunteers that came out to aid in the clean up of the city, I would have gone myself but what can I do with a almost 6 month old tagging along.
So because of the rain, I haven't been able to get out for a run. I had plans to run on thursday with another mom, but the weather didn't cooperate and good thing, look what happened! So we have exchanged numbers and plan on getting out on the pathways soon. Once things settle down from the floods I will getting out more and meeting more moms, going to splash parks.
Today I managed to get downstairs for a leg work out, it was a good workout despite the minor hiccup of having to soothe Anissa back to sleep, DH just can't be quite. Did some stretching and enjoyed my protein shake. I am also going to try to wake up early and do some cardio videos in the basement, I have the insanity workouts so I will be giving them a try.
