Yesterday while Cal was
at his playdate hanging out with friends, Mack and I ended up walking/riding his bike to Denver Park. That is just a few blocks short of the school, and he decided he’d rather go to the park than ride around the parking lot. It was still a couple of miles for him to ride there and back, plus he could ride all around the sidewalks of the park. Oh, he also road his bike all over the tennis courts . Chewie just hung out while I pushed Mack on the swings.
He’s such a good dog.
That thing over Chewie’s nose is not a muzzle. It is an anti-pull collar. His little 30 pound body can exert about 1,000 pounds of force on a leash. It is awful trying to walk him without it. He’s totally used to it now and doesn’t mind it too much.
Today I am feeling pretty much totally well and appreciating it so much. It will probably take a week or so for me to take it for granted again.
This morning I walked the boys to school, went to Publix because I’m creating some fantasticalness again that I will be posting about later, then I went for a run! I wrote about it on my Still Running Page, but it was great. The only problem is that my legs were really sore from Bodypump yesterday (mainly my quads), so after walking yesterday and this morning and then running, I am hobbling about now due to the soreness. But I am so happy to be feeling good and exercising again that I don’t even care. And I know that continuing to exercise through the soreness actually makes it go away faster than just resting. Tomorrow is Bodyflow!
This afternoon I went to the boys’ school for their student-led gifted conferences. Basically, it is just a chance for them to show me what they have been doing in their gifted class. The conferences were actually last week, but I was so out of it that I totally forgot about them. No biggie.
I got to see all of their work. Check out their gifted folders…expressing their personalities:
Even though I am beyond sore, I am planning on going on the family walk tonight. I think the walking actually helps the soreness by gently working out my muscles. The worst part is sitting down and standing back up. Which I need to do now to go serve the fantasticalness for dinner. Happy Monday!
