Taking two sick girls out for a run in this would probably be considered child abuse. So what is a mom to do? How to get a walk/run in and not harm my children? I'm sure there may be many solutions. I had two. The first, of course, made the snow work for me. Shoveling snow burns quite a few calories, uses the whole body and get's the heart rate up. During nap time, when I couldn't leave the house, I simple went out and used my snow weights to heat up my day. My second solution came in the form of an understanding husband. We have very few waking hours together, but he encouraged me to take thirty minutes of that time for me. So out I went. I tried a little running. It was nice without the stroller, and helped me to see how far I've come and still need to go.
Here are my runkeeper summaries:
Monday: I kept to my original walking plan but I added in a few running spurts.
