Husband came with me on my workout today. I went back to the Middle School. Well, first we went to Walmart so I could buy some new headphones for my iPod since mine disappeared (Daughter took them; I'm sure of it). I also got some MUCH needed socks and underwear, too. So then we went to the Middle School. We did one warm-up lap by walking around the quarter-mile track. Then we ran a full lap. Then we walked half a lap, ran half a lap (did this for two laps). That was a mile for us, and we did it in 16 minutes. I was working up a good sweat by this point, so I took off my jacket. Then we set off on the Nature Trail, which is a half-mile loop. We jogged up the hill (it's short) and walked the rest. I think that took us about 15 minutes. This Nature Trail has exercise stations set up at several points along the way.
Here's a link, if anyone is intersted in seeing what I'm talking about: https://www.gophersport.com/it
So anyway... The second time we walked the trail, we stopped at each station and did (ok, we TRIED to do) the exercises. We busted our butts and did our best, but weren't able to do all of them. Some of them were just too hard, so we would make modifications and just do our best...but we didn't wuss out at ALL. We were working as hard as our bodies would let us work. We even jogged a little bit, in between stations. We raced a couple of times (I WON!). Then, when we completed the second lap on the Nature Trail, we decided to go to the front of the school and run up and down the stairs. We did this eight times. I seriously thought I was going to puke! Holy crap. Then we decided to jog to our truck, which was parked waaaaaaaaay on the other side of the big driveway and parking area. We started jogging, and then weaved our way in and out of all the parked buses. We took a shortcut through a grassy area to make it to the truck, but we didn't care. We. Were. So. TIRED. We just fell onto the truck and choked on air. Then we took one cool-down lap through the entire school driveway. I'd guess it was about a quarter-mile or so. Maybe a little less. At any rate, the final lap of the Nature Trail (doing all the stations), running up and down the stairs, jogging through the parking area and between the buses and the cool-down lap took about 45 minutes. We worked out for a total of 76 minutes. I was really proud of myself, because every thing we did was my idea. It was my idea to do the stations. I decided when we'd run and stop. I decided to do the stairs, jog that final lap, run through the buses, etc. All of that was my idea. I was (am!) really proud of Husband, too. We worked HARD. I mean HARD HARD HARD. We are both tired and sore. Hell, we were already tired and sore, but now... Sheesh.
We came home, showered, and I did my hair and makeup again. I wanted to do it because it makes me feel better...even if Husband doesn't say anything. I made portobello pizzas for lunch. These were yummy! I just use a portobello cap, flip it upside-down, put sauce on it, cheese, peppers, olives, pepperoni, etc. You could put anything you wanted on it. Baked it in the oven for a few minutes. We each had two, and they were delicious.
Anyway... I'm feeling good. Oh, and Husband told me he liked my makeup, so that made me feel good, too.
