Question: What does one do when it’s so blazin’ hot outside that the idea of being anywhere but directly in front of the AC makes you a lil batty???
Answer: You make a day out of fun indoorsy activities!
Activity #1: Circuit Training with a Friend
Knowing that running outside, or any other manually laborious activity would NOT be happening, I decided to switch up the ol’ workout routine, and grab a buddy: Dear Hubby.
Circuit A: 15 minutes – Person A runs/jogs/walks on the treadmill; Person B warmups and does the Jackie Warner Abs circuit & then switch!
Circuit B: 15 minutes – Person A runs/jogs/walks on the treadmill; Person B completes Jackie Warner Upper Body circuit – SWITCH!
Circuit C: 15 minutes – Person A runs/jobs/walks on the treadmill; Person B completes Jackie Warner Lower Body circuit – SWITCH!
WHAT A SWEAT HOG WORKOUT!!!
You can see the two peaks on the chart are from the two points in which I started back up on the treadmill. I was “Person B” and started out with the JW DVD, and I had to cut my time short on the last circuit because my legs were so exhausted! But overall I was very pleased with how effective this switch up was.
Activity #2: Bowling!
OMG I had forgotten how much I enjoy bowling, and discovered that the love affair not only is still on, but rejuvenated since Michigan has gone to a smoke-free policy for public buildings. Lungs, meet fresh air and lane wax.
Even though this was part II of our lovely indoorsy day, I brought my game face.
Ummmm, say huh?!?!?
Activity #3: Sports Cards
My parents told us about a sports card shop in the same town where the bowling alley was, and to console Dear Hubby’s bruised ego after losing to his wife at bowling, twice, we made a stop in at Extra Innings in Mason, MI.
Usually, we do our cards bidness in a store called Legends, but it’s always good to have options for when you’re in different parts of town. A very delightful and KNOWLEDGABLE man named Rick runs Extra Innings, and we stayed well over an hour just shooting the sporting news breeze with him. With a box of 2011 Panini Threads football cards in hand, we made our trip home and enjoyed the remainder of our evening like this:
Was our day of indoorsy activities successful? I’d say so!
