    Fitness First …… does sleeping until 10 am followed by seven cups of coffee and three push ups a day count? If so, I guess I’m fitness oriented. Go Dale go!

    I’m waiting to see where you guys go with this one. I have a personal “bucket list” type of goal which is somewhat connected to fitness. A wise old Indian once gave me some advice on that one

    I’m in! Especially when I consider that bathing suit weather is just around the corner-YIKES!!!
    Did over an hour yesterday to kick things off. Half an hour on my own and then a family baseball game that was lots of fun. But Sundays are the easy days to make the challenge…we’ll see how I do when I’m back to work. You were right about Calgary weather. With the upcoming forecast this week being beautiful, I suspect an evening walk won’t be too hard to pull off. But the kids do have various evening activities I have to think about too. Wonder if my son will mind if I do squats while I watch him at baseball practise? Probably. But I’m not doing my job if I don’t embarrass him once and a while! Is it wrong that it actually motivates me even more? 🙂

    We have decided to take part in this month’s challenge as a family. Our goal is to complete the 12 minute run once a day throughout the month of June. The 12 minute run is simply running a set course for 12 minutes and keeping track of how far you get. You track your own progress and hopefully improve as the month goes on. Our eldest son has to complete this task once a month in his junior high gym class, so we decided to give it a go.
    We have just come in from run number 3! Every night our three children have balked and complained as we have made our way out the door, but once the run begins they get down to the task at hand. The joy they get from lapping their parents, tapping us on the shoulder and calling, “On your left!” seems a little uncalled for, however we are good sports and soldier on.
    As parents we have already experienced improvement. After night one, both my husband and I thought we were going to cough up a lung or maybe two. Our lungs were on FIRE!! Yet three days into the challenge we are no longer coughing and we were both able to run for the entire 12 minutes tonight!! We are however still strategically planning our trips up and down the stairs in our house as the delayed muscle soreness has set in. We are quite the pair… but we are a happy pair.
    I think the best part of the challenge so far has been the time we have spent together as a family. It’s been nice to see our three children cheer each other on – even if it is to lap dad just one more time before the timer goes off! We have also enjoyed the banter that follows the run as we walk home and then stretch out our muscles on the front lawn. We have had some great laughs – which is good exercise too! Thanks for this challenge ladies!

    Wow Heather and Dawn, that’s awesome. Working things in with the kids rather than around them really is a good way to go in terms of sustainability I find. It’s amazing what a few chin-ups can do a few times a week at the playground!
