Trailblazer (or blader?)
I have a great cross-training idea for you- ROLLERBLADING! Yesterday, my friend told me that she and another mutual friend had stuck the kids in the jogging stroller and gone rollerblading. I told her that sounded really fun, and she invited me to go with them this morning. I was planning on doing my run early, so I told her I could meet them at 9:00 after we got the kids off to school. So I did my 4:30 a.m. 8-mile run, then my weight workout, got the kids off to school, and pulled out my rollerblades. I had to dust them off- I haven't done if for a while. I stuck Taylor in the stroller, and headed out to meet them at the head of a trail that's by our houses. We went a total of 8.4 miles! It was such a blast! Taylor thought it was awesome, too. (I think I need some better blades, though, I got mine for 10 bucks at a yard sale:). It was such a fun way to burn some extra calories and hang out with friends. I highly recommend it!
