So, I squeezed in a lot of activity today. With the beautiful weather here until Tuesday, I wanted to take advantage of every sunny minute and soak up some Vitamin D. Yesterday, I decided to wash my car MYSELF, but I never got around to it. Today, car-washing topped my to-do list.
That looks like 20 activity points worth of dirt caked on my vehicle. Actually I looked up the activity points value for washing a car. I earned 4 points for 90 minutes of car washing and car care (i.e. vacuuming, squatting and scrubbing, etc.)
So on to some pants splitting fun with my boys. Unbeknown to them,I made plans for the boys to join me at the park while I start Week 4 Day 1 (WK4D1) of my Couch to 5K (C25K) training. Did I mention I started the C25K training...AGAIN?! Well my friends, My mom and I intend to run the Summer Kick-Off Fun Run on May 8th. Why do they call runs fun? Ironically, I find nothing fun about running.
As I prepare for my first run, I am filled with trepidation and fear. Hopefully on the day of the run, my endorphins kick in and I run like a champ. I just want to complete my first run, so I can get my feet wet and catch the 5K fever. This Summer Kick-Off Fun Run will be my first 5K, and certainly not my LAST!
Okay...okay, on to my busted pants. While taking a much needed H2O break after knocking out WK4D1, my boys sauntered over to inform me about their adventurous trail expeditions. The boy's trail tales intrigued me, so I told them to lead me to the fun!
Okay, here's where the trouble started. My boys warned me about parts of the trail that required some climbing skills, but I failed to heed their warning. Well...too late to turn back now, so ONWARD!
Look at the steep hill in the background. Trail #1 contained many hilly parts which I successfully conquered with my own brand of clumsy flair.
Speaking of clumsy, on to trail #2. Now, here's where the shenanigans and hi-jinks began.
My pants after the butt slide. And I went to Wal-Mart with this dirty butt. I hope I do not end up on one of those people of Wal-Mart emails that circulate around the country.
Good times...good times! And YES,I did split my pants...lol.
You'd think I'd quit while I was ahead. Nope! We collectively decided to check out Trail #3. On the way to our next adventure I cut my hand on a stick, but I survived the minor scrape.
While walking the trail, I questioned my boys several times about the legitimacy of trial #3. The trail resembled that of a uncharted jungle in the making. After swatting the foliage with a stick the greenery thinned out and this peaceful scene unfolded before us.
We found interesting tiny prints from some little creature.
Well that concludes my Trail Mix adventures. After our 3 expeditions we decided to hang around the park as the sun retreated behind the trees.
Watching the boys climb the tree looked like fun, but I dared not try.
As we prepared to leave, we met a nice older couple that schooled the boys in Squirrel 101.
As we drove to Wal-Mart for produce we all laughed AGAIN about my busted pants...LOL! GOOD TIMES!
