Racking up the miles

Well, relative to what I usually do. I've been riding my bike to and from work and throwing in a long ride once a week so far. I walked ~2mi Thursday, and we've been taking occasional family walks.  Theirry Sanchez posted this quick kettlebell workout and I've done 1 round twice. My back got sore from it! Talk about out of shape.

Thurday was work's Sports/Family Day, & I played volleyball for the first time in I don't know how long. It was fun. At some point during the day I got sunburned on the backs of my calves. DH and 3/4 of the kids didn't hang out much past lunch. A bunch of kids took over the dunk tank afte lunch while the adults were still eating. Spiderboy was nearly running it. Princss tried it a couple of times, but she was only as tall as the water was deep, & she can't swim. She'd bounce up quickly and doggie paddle fast the 1 ft to the side and latch on really fast to the chain link above the tub, then 'walk' herself to the step. She didn't know when to hold her breath though, that's why she only did it twice.

Monkey boy and I stayed after everyone left. I pushed him on the swing so long that my shoulders were sore Friday! (Probably ~20 min). We got a soda, he jumped in a bouncy house, we had the run of the baseball toss. Eventually we saw our neighbors and hung out with them till they left. Then we started walking home. Thankfully the big brothers met us across the street with the bike trailer. That way Monkey Boy didn't have to walk a 1/2 mile in the heat & I could ride my bike. Later I took the two big boys to the pool. Spider Boy enjoye it; Teenager didn't. The temp had gone down, and the wind had kicked up, so it wasn't hot enough for me to get int he water. I sat on the side and dangled my feet in. That's when I realized the backs of my legs were sunburned. Good day though.
