Wow, summer is flying by… and I have not posted in over a week and a half!! I have tried to keep up with blogging, but clearly I have fallen a bit behind! When I first started this wee little blog, I tried to post 2 -3 times a week…not so much lately. I tell you, I don’t know how some of these bloggers keep up with it all….oh yeah, they quit their real jobs, have husbands that can support them, and become full time bloggers (how fancy)! :) While my life is not quite as fancy, I have been having fun while keeping busy with a few new fitness ventures, workouts, and enjoying the sun!
I have been trying to buckle down and really study my Personal Training material… with a little help from an old friend, Red Wine, of course.
Early mornings and myself have become much better acquainted lately. I have been teaching a Stability and Balance class a few days a week at 6:30 AM – which I am actually loving! It is such a different way to challenge your muscles and improve core stability and strength. Quite a change from the high intensity classes I am used to teaching!
I had the opportunity to lead an hour long kids tennis conditioning clinic a couple days this week at the country club I work for… that was interesting, to say the least! The thought with participating in the tennis clinic was that it might open up some doors to start a kids fitness program, and it might and it would be a great program if we got it together, but I sure did not know what I was getting myself into! I had about 16 kids between the ages of 8-12, all boys except 2, and they came to me at the end of their day and they were definitely rowdy… but we had some fun, shared some laughs, and
everyone I survived! :)
A soccer field - what a beautiful sight. I spend 2 days a week here playing on my rec league in the summer. Our season actually just ended last night though (tear).
Speaking of soccer…. The other day my dad asked me what my favorite number growing up playing soccer was, I told him 17, and then the next day we were driving somewhere in my car together and he noticed my odometer! Pretty cool, eh?! Although what is not so cool is my poor car is getting old! I am going to ride her till she can’t go any more though!
I wrote a post last week about the Dirty Girl Mud Run I did and I just wanted to share one of the photos the event released. I give them credit because the photos that were taken by photographers (like this one) were actually really cool. And unlike a lot of races, they did not make them super small or put writing all over them so you would have to buy the pictures to actually get a good shot.
Hope you are enjoying your summer!!
If you are a blogger, how do you make the time to keep up with it consistently?
What is the most miles you ever had on your car before you got rid of it or it broke?
Any tips for teaching kids fitness?
