3. Throw rocks at people on bicycles. Boo, biking! Yay, running!
Today's schedule just didn't allow for a run. And I looked for someone to ride by on a bike, but that didn't happen either.
After putting the little one to bed, I pulled out the neglected wii balance board and the wii Active. I set it for the first day of the 30-day challenge with moderate intensity. It was quite fun and a pretty good workout. I remember when I tried to do the squats last time (a couple of years ago) and I couldn't squat low enough for it to register. I was worried when it was the first exercise on the agenda. But I was able to do them and with pretty good rhythm, too. The boxing was fun. There were some good arm exercises. Apparently I also run slowly in place, because it yelled at me to speed up on the track. Got news for you Mr. Wii Active; I run slow! This is not news; it is well covered material!
I really liked the boxing. It would be fun to get some boxing gloves and punch the bags in the gym. For now, I think I'll pull out the wii a little more often and punch the air. =)
