Megan and I hit up the gym first thing yesterday morning because a good sweat is the best way to start a Saturday.
She had us do burpees with a medicine ball as part of our legs and core workout. I was panting after each set of 15.
Lift the ball over your head (we used 15 lb balls), throw it down to the ground and then do that whole burpee thing before picking up the ball and doing it all over again.
Why are burpees so ridiculously hard?
We also got to see a bit of the Ironman 70.3 going on in St. George yesterday. The bikers were FLYING by us.
We picked up Mad Pita for chicken, pitas and rice pilaf to eat at the pool. Brooke absolutely approved of our restaurant choice.
Hours of this:
Followed by Brooke’s first tennis lesson. An interesting thing happens—> When you think that after ten years of not playing that you are still going to be good at tennis because you used to play back in high school—> you are wrong. I think I need to get practicing again:)
Brooke loved it though. Her enthusiasm about trying new things makes life really fun for me.
We got hungry and finally left the clubhouse.
Salad bar of course for dinner. This is not my salad, I wanted to show you Megan’s obsession with beets that I just do not understand.
Two huge couches to sit on and Brooke refused to sit anywhere but the basket.
Saturday night activity once Brooke went to bed. We just could not get any cooler.
What is your opinion regarding beets?
Any tennis players reading? Anyone play in high school?
Did you sleep in today or get up early?
Any triathletes reading? Which tri has been your favorite?
