I can’t even begin to tell you what kind of pain Pure Barre put me through yesterday morning. Every single time I go I leave thinking, why?? But seriously, it’s such a great workout. I love working my ‘seat’ as the instructors call it. I’m not very flexible so she’s often over by me helping, but man I love to be sore! I learned from training last summer, cross training is so beneficial. It pays to feel strong when you’re running a lot of miles. This article is great on benefits of cross training.
Especially these benefits Runner’s World lists for cross training, I mean, who wouldn’t want to feel all of this while running??
- Enhance a runner’s efficiency.
- Increase a runner’s power.
- Increase the amount of time a runner is able to spend training without accumulating fatigue or getting injured.
J was in preschool while I went to Pure Barre and there happens to be a Joanne’s fabric right by the studio. I found myself browsing for some good deals and didn’t find any but it put me in the crafting mood. I started a craft that I’ll share when I’m finished.
Yesterday was one of those days where J and I got to have a lot of fun mixed with usual craziness. J is at the age that I can joke with him and really have conversations and laugh out loud together, it’s the best. He’s kind of grown out of naps(meaning most days he doesn’t take them but some days he asks for them) so he has quiet time. That means he can play in his room or his play room but he has to be quiet so I can get stuff done, or read or do whatever. Yesterday during quiet time I came to get him and his shirt was soaking wet. I asked him why he was wet and he said it was from the toilet…
I threw him in the bath, scrubbed the bathroom(you don’t wanna know), and tossed his clothes in the dirty clothes bin. It’s just part of life, and I love it. I love watching him grow and learn new things like the toilet is disgusting and you can’t stay in your clothes if they’re covered in toilet water. He’s my buddy, my silly buddy.
Later that night we all went out with my MIL to help her find some clothes for my FIL. This is what J chose to wear after bath #2. I don’t even argue with him anymore. He felt awesome and that’s all that matters ha
I know my outfit isn’t any better, I guess he learns his style from me haha
Happy Wednesday, make it wonderful!
what’s making you happy today?
what other cross training should I try next?
