Today for my 44 I did rocking squat – it was every bit as awkward as it sounds!!
Start in a squat position –
More than anything this is a nice way to warm-up your shins and calves – and get a little burn from holding the squat!!!
And, it was another happy day on the treadmill!!! I did 8 miles at a fairly steady pace – just a few seconds under an hour or right at 7:30 pace and then another 1.15 miles super easy. I’m hoping to have more running days this year – trying to be smart about it though because I have a history of stress fractures. (in 10 years I’ve had 3 or 4 in my right foot and 1 in each hip)
What?! How did this happen?
And, to make things even worse, neither Chris nor the boys have ever been to a rodeo!!!
Of course, then Chris reminded me that they have been skiing, to lots of beaches and for 5 straight summers we went to Hawaii starting when Hunter was 4 and Jordan 6. (The Hawaii gig was because we got to fly Space A, free, on the tanker – and I think it is time for another trip!!!)
But still, the circus is like having a peanut butter and jelly sandwich – it is part of growing up!!!
Jordan said, “I’m not going to a circus. I don’t want to see clowns juggling swords with creepy faces.” OY!!!
Maybe I will take them to a cattle auction!! None of them (Chris or the boys) have ever been to one of those either and I think everyone should experience the thrill of a cattle auction!!! (I used to go with my grandparents – good times!!!)
Have you been to the circus? A rodeo? What about a cattle auction?
What is one place you think all kids should experience at least once?
