I braved up today and went to a BodyStep class. I’m not a fan of things that actually involve coordination. That list includes dancing, stepping, running on a treadmill, or trying to walk on a balance beam. It was a super great class and the instructor was good although her microphone was broken, so it was a bit of a challenge to hear her.
After Stepping it up, I headed downstairs to meet Kim on a treadmill while she did a 6mile tempo and I pretended to run. The longest I’ve ever “rode” a treadmill is about 10 minutes max. I get bored, distracted, and like I said, I have a hard time being coordinated. I toughed it out and to ease my boredom, I did short spurts of fast running, then I’d run easy, and speed back up. My mileage ended up being 4.3 miles, so at least I did something. I also did some incline walking on it just to make sure all of the features were working. Hopefully no one else heard my stomping!!
Kim, being the sweet gal she is, offered to buy me dinner at Chick-fil-a. Her kids were SOOO excited to see me. She wonders why they like me so much, but she doesn’t ever see me slip them the chocolate and ring pops. Bribery is the key to maintaining any friendship with kiddos. I had a delicious (and somewhat healthy) dinner and was stuffed!!
