Relaxing Holiday for Us
I had a good workout day today. The YMCA was closed for the holiday so I was left to walking, as I am still not supposed to be running. (I am not supposed to run until I get my orthotics. I've cheated a few times.) Anyway- I walked outside in the rain and it was wonderful! I wore a windbreaker of Jack's w/ a hood and didn't mind the rain at all. I did 4 miles at a decent pace. It took a while to get my heart rate up b/c I wasn't running but that is okay. Caloriesperhour.com says I burned 272 calories so I am fine w/ that! We had a nice relaxing holiday here. Jack let me sleep in since I was up late watching the trials last night. (Which, BTW, were super-edge-of-your-seat exciting.) The children just played or we read to them during the day. We let them go out and play in the wet grass when it stopped raining this afternoon. The baby was in bed and asleep for the night at 5:15!!! Lisa went to bed at her normal 7 pm but we woke her up at 9:15 so she could go to the fireworks w/ Jack. It is her first fireworks and she is soooooooooo excited. Here is a picture of them on their way out the door. Happy 4th!
