Walking update...

Ok... so I've been trying to increase my cardio since I'm now on summer vacation. But you know how life always seems to try to get in the way. I really want to get closets organized this summer and I'm working on repainting the table and chairs outside.

Anyways... boys and I went for a walk this morning:
1.4 miles
29:30

Not a great time... but when you think about it, I was pushing a 30 lb child in the jogging stroller. We took for stop breaks to drink water... we also stopped to watch the pretty butterfly... we stopped and then tiptoed following behind a jackrabbit... then we saw and talked to a quail family. The time wasn't bad at all then... all things considered.

Last week we took a really long walk...
1.89 miles
39:00

We went mile one in under twenty minutes... but then the sun came out from behind the clouds and really started heating things up. We also had a couple hummingbirds that we circling the plants around us so of course we had to stop and admire. Matt really wanted one to land on him so he could carry it home...

I think any workout that involves the boys is going to automatically be an interval workout. They do love to stop and 'smell the roses.'
