Jane Fonda, eat your heart out!
In this house, we watch a crazy amount of Sesame St. Yes, yes. I know! Children shouldn’t watch a crazy amount of television, but Trubba seems to carry on with toys and such despite it and if he stops to just watch it, I turn it off. Anyhoo, Grover is becoming a fast favorite of mine even though I hated him as a child and this quote resonated with me because I’ve been trying to do the Couch to 5K program.
And it’s not working.
No seriously, it’s not. I have good shoes, yet my knee (the same knee I’ve had repeated issues with since I was in Junior High) keeps acting up and giving me a horrible pain for up to 4 days. How the heck am I going to build up any endurance if I can only work out two to three times a week?
So, I think I may take up walking. Speed walking, that is, for our 3 mile circuit instead and hope my body decides to behave itself. Which brings me to my other gripe: Why, oh, WHY does this neighborhood have so many damn hills???? My thighs get a hefty workout pushing Trubba and his jogging stroller up all these hills!
