Today it is just like a spring day. It is 0 degrees Celsius outside and the sun is slowly melting the snow. I headed to the park where there is a cleared paved track. I brought a snack for my princess and a stroller because yesterday we did a lap (0.7 mile/1.13 km) and she was too tired to do another lap. I would have kept walking but we went home instead.
How to make a 4-year-old walking? You jump over the cracks, count the puddles, get chased by pretend monsters, get lost and let her pick the good road etc. All that only works one time for one lap. Today with the stroller we did 3 laps which is about 2 miles/3.22 km. She walked and ran for a while and she sat in her stroller and ate her snack. Pushing a 45 pounds charge up a few small hills gave me an extra work-out and running down the same hills made my princess go ”WOOHOO!!!” so it was all fun! The plus is that I have burned 300 calories being happy
For once walking and actually going forwards for true was a good change from the Wii balance board. The fresh air and the sun was so energizing. Just like shadowrun300 says now I feel like I really deserve to sit in my chair with the computer on my lap with a delicious hot latte to sip.
