Jumping Into June

Wednesday, June 01, 2011

emoticonHere we go, starting a new month already...

I haven't been as productive as I'd hoped to be today, but the day isn't over yet and I'm not done. I had an extra kid for a few hours this afternoon, which threw my day out of whack. We were going to go to the pool, but it is still closed.

Outside exercise aside from the pool isn't a great option at the moment. We had weather that set a record high today - 101 degrees!!! It's going to be a long weekend if they don't hurry up and get the pool cleaned. My kids are not enjoying being stuck inside.

I headed down to the gym to get in a run in honor of National Running Day. I set a new best, finishing a 5K in 40 minutes flat. I am still planning to get in at least another 20 minutes of cardio plus my lower body workout after dinner. l wk be doing my ST while watching Ultimate Fighter with the family. My daughter is excited that she can stay up to watch I since school is out.

We just figured out that since my hubby has a short day at work tomorrow, we are going to take the kids to the splashpark down the street if the pool still isn't open. It's free and the kids can cool off in the fountains. I won't exactly get a workout from it, but at least we will have some fun!

    101! Holy smokes.

    Is it dry heat or do you have the humidity with it too? I can handle the heat but when it gets too humid I don't care for it.

    Keep up the good work on the indoor workouts!

    WOW 101 is no fun! Love those challenges that keep us motivated to get in some kind of movement throughout the day. You are doing awesome! Hope your pool gets cleaned soon!

    With temps up to 101 you definitely need a pool. Hoping that you were all able to stay cool!

    So I also managed to get in 30 minutes of heavy cleaning as I scrubbed my kitchen down hardcore after dinner. It was in need again after the holiday weekend. And I got in a TurboJam workout plus the 5-Minute Challenge for my Challenges for Sparkers with Lots to Lose team. I can't wait to see where that challenge goes for Summer!
