This heat is cramping my style, yo.

I was going to start something new this week. The couch to 5 K challenge, not to really run a 5 K (I don't think) but to just get something new that I can do with 2 small kids in tow. It seems like the only way I can exercise is if I act like a fool playing in the pool with the kids or push the stroller. Playing for an hour in the pool is fun, but really it's not exactly melting these pounds off me.

So, I decided to start the couch 2 5K. It looks totally doable. But not in 100+ heat. So I'm holed up in the living room (the meat locker, as we call it, since it's the only cold room in the house and the blast of cool air when you enter is A LOT like entering a walk in fridge).

I want fall! But we have a good 6-8 weeks of summer here still. Booooooooo.
Oh well, there is the pool at least.

This may sound weird, but I run in place when the weather is nasty. You're still getting exercise. I do it when it's cold could do it first thing in the morning and have Cole in the bouncy chair or later when the kids go to bed. Wear shoes though...the floor can be achy on the joints. :) Just a thought.

I get too revved up to exercise in the evening. I end up awake until 1! You reminded me I need new shoes -- I remember last time the heel was killing me like it was rubbing on my achilles. Good thing I remembered -- because I felt like a cripple for a day after my last hike.
