No, I'm not talking about DOING workouts with kids like I showed in this video 2.5 years ago when I used Henry as weights for a core workout. (Seriously, if you want to see a cute old video of Henry, check out that link!) I'm talking about logistically working out with kids.
In this post from last month, I showed a 1-lap workout that I got in at the pool:
"My morning workout. After Charlie had breakfast, he seemed to feel a lot better. We took a
chance and went to the gym. I got in 1 lap at the pool before the Playzone sitters came to
get me because he was too sad/crabby. Poor dude."
Tuesday was HOT, and Pharmie was off work. We went to the pool:
Sidenote: check out my hot wife!
Downpour to the left as I was ready to ride down Smith.
Some more rain past the Cathedral.
With a puffin in the background on the left, and lots of big fish on the right.
If you drive by a St. Paul home and it looks like this next to the street,
stop up to the house and say "hi." You've found our place.
Lots of fresh little annuals that should be bigger and beautiful in a month.
Charlie's eating raisins as I'm getting lunch ready.
Making a CAKE with Mama in the evening - Henry's birthday was the next day!
(And Charlie always wants to do WHATEVER his big brother is doing.)
This is why Henry likes to make cake. This is why we all like to make cake.
Instagram caption: "'What do you want to do for your birthday today?' 'Umm, I think I want
to go down to the river and look for dinosaur fossils.' Sweet. After a steep hike with Charlie
in the Bjorn, we were looking at rocks. We brought 2 home. Happy 4th, big guy! #DadLife"
Oh, and speaking of "dad" issues, I think I have some tendonitis (or something) in my right elbow from carrying Charlie in the carseat as we run errands. I started to notice some pain maybe 2-3 weeks ago. In the last few days, it's gotten so bad that I've stopped lifting weights. I can't wash my face or grip a knife normally (and push down - like through a watermelon) without pain. I've decided to stop any weight lifting for 10 days because I can't do an upper-body muscle group without it hurting (I can do core and legs though). We'll see what this becomes.
I recently decided that I'm racing a triathlon tomorrow! Stop back for more on that soon!
