One of the best things about Austin is Lady Bird Lake. We LOVE to walk or run around it every chance we get. Yesterday was even better because I got to walk around it with a few of my favorite people. I’ve never really walked with a little girl before, but it was hilarious. She would RUN really fast to a set point and then tell us she was tired. We gave her jobs to do like counting the turtles she saw or the dogs she saw. That kept her pretty happy until she fell. Poor thing nearly died! Really it was just a scratch, but to a five year old, that’s pretty traumatic. She got to ride in the stroller on the way back, so all was good.
When we got to the end of the walk, we decided to do some lunges. I’ve gotten obsessed with lunges and try to do them at least every other day. I’m at about 110 lunges on each leg. Next week I think I’ll bump it up a bit.
Once we finished the walk, we had to wait on our super athletic friend that went around it twice in the time it took us to do 2 miles. While we waited we played a game of Fitness Simon Says. We did jumping jacks, stair steps, squats, prison squats and knee ups. That really kicked our work out to a different level.
After we got our fitness on, we went to one of my favorite places: PLUCKERS!!! I’m pretty sure all the hard work we did was negated by the few hours we spent enjoying ourselves!
The dogs love to chase balls in to the water at Lady Bird Lake!
