Workout of the Day
I'm slowly getting back into running. And today my goal was 6km. I'm up north with limited places to run without driving somewhere. Our the door and to the right? 3+km uphill. To the left? 3+km downhill. Either way, I'm looking at 3+km uphill at some point. Ugh.
So, I got creative:
I turned LEFT. Then:
2km downhill. Easy pace, great warm-up. I then turned around and started the following intervals:
250 metres fast run uphill
150 - 200 metres recovery run down
Distances weren't super accurate, but basically the idea was to net gain on every interval. It was actually kind of fun. Walked the last 500 metres up as a cool down to engage my butt muscles and stretch everything out a little.
Then into the kitchen for...

Recovery of the Day
Lose track of time. Smile. Have fun. Play reduces stress levels and connects you with others. So, grab your kids or your partner tonight and dust off a game! CodeNames? Cards Against Humanity? What about backgammon? Cribbage? The kids and I are going to dive into a basket of Exploding Kittens...
