|We had the best view from our tent. Look out and see the lake, look up at night to millions of stars.|
...wasn't ALL about the kiddos...
|She loves kayaking SO VERY much! I think I'm going to take her on some rivers here at home with a group.|
|The lake was very clear. We saw LOTS of creepy things with our goggles on.|
...I had lots of fun, too!!
Ron and I even got in a couple of long lake swims...
|Nothing like spending the morning on a swim with your bro with your mama kayaking along side you. Loved these swims!|
...to work off those homemade berry pie (thanks, Mom!) breakfasts that I enjoyed topped with ice cream.
It was on the drive home that I started having major buttular discomfort. My a$$ to mid calf was just screaming. This injury is obviously not getting better. I was, in fact, going to make an appointment at my favorite Sports Injury Clinic last week, but we had an unexpected change in finances, and so I decided before I get myself into a couple months of deductible and copays maybe I could try harder to work it out on my own. I'm giving myself two weeks of twice daily stretching, 3x week yoga and daily working at my desk on my Big Ball...
...to see if I can get over this hump. I seriously cannot sit in my desk chair for longer than a couple hours anymore, as the pain is too great. A full day of work is just not happening. darn. :p
I DID get in a run yesterday. I made it to 2.5 miles before feeling a twinge in my back. I tried to work it out over the next .5 miles but finally dropped down to a walk at mile 3. I feel good about the 3 miles, though. I held about a 9:30m/m pace and it was probably best for my leg to drop it down to a walk then as well.
So this week has been nice. The kids are in school and it's completely quiet around here for 6 hours every day. Lovely. I even took a nap yesterday. ahhhhh....
But after school, let the games begin...I'm talking soccer games. Girl made the first goal of the season for her team on Wednesday...
Jack is less of a team sport type of guy. Last year he did archery. I'm thinking swim team or golf maybe for this year, but for this quarter, he's chosen Lego Engineering. Not exactly a sport, but I know he'll have fun!
In other news, I've joined a Womens Football Pool. Anyone have any inside information on this week's games?
