We usually, walk a lap (0.25 mile) and then do a set of stadiums (which is up and down two times). Lately we've even been adding in squats, lunges, push-ups, tricep dips and a little ab work. We're getting up to about 2.5 miles in an hour. Including our little circuit. We've even talked about doing a half marathon in November. I know, we're getting crazy! LOL!
It's been so fun. We get to chat AND exercise. What more could you ask for? A workout buddy who is super fun to talk to!! I totally get what that group of ladies experiences.
BUT...on my way home this morning, I was thinking about what I was going to do when my friend goes back to work in a few weeks (she gets summers off) and Brother starts school or Daddy Goose goes back to work. Will we get up and exercise at 5:30 a.m.? Or walk in the afternoons when she gets off work? Or will we just walk on the weekends? I haven't even talked to her about it, but already I'm getting bummed. I don't wanna stop our daily walks. We gotta figure this one out!
For now, we'll keep up our walks and talks and enjoy the cool summer mornings while getting our exercise on!
Do you have an exercise buddy? Studies have shown that those who do, workout more. So, if you don't...you better find one! :)
