I quite like my routine of waking up at a crazy early hour and getting my workouts in before my family is awake. I did, however, try something new this week, and I guess it wasn't too terrible. :)
I took the kids to the track at 4pm to get a run in. Mason wasn't thrilled at first and tried to run after me the first few times I ran around. He soon figured out that I wasn't actually running away from him, never to return. Working out with the kids around is still great for the endorphins, but it does not give me that mental break and emotional rejuvenation that I get from leaving them at home. :)
We stopped by the splash pad after the track to cool off.
And then while the boys were showering, I did a quick lower body weights workout in the bathroom. Now that is multitasking at it's finest.
15 regular squats
15 sissy squats
15 sumo squats
15 front lunges
15 back lunges
15 dead lifts
Repeat 3 times (or when your kids start to get wrinkly).
Do you workout with your kids present?
Do you like or dread Mondays?
What's for dinner tonight? (I'm in a dinner rut!)
