Hanging with the kids on the ice rink

I could not for my life fall asleep last night and it started with the rainstorm that kept me awake half the night and I when the temperature dropped this animal started screaming outside my window. I don’t think my head was not turned on straight as I thought maybe a cat got tuck on the rink and frozen it’s tiny paws to the ice!!!  Hmm…good thing I got a sleep in this morning as the kids had another day off school today as well as t there was no animals in sight anywhere near our house, thank god!

I managed to convince Knut to come with me to Life Time Fitness this morning. He is getting too old for the childcare and think it is boring, so I did a four mile run and I wanted to be done fast knowing that he wasn’t enjoying himself that much. I always do intervals and started 1 minute running at 7.0 and 1 minute at 7.5. And then I increased the speed every five minutes i.e. 7.1 and 7.6 till I got to 7.5 and 8.0. At that point I just kept on increasing the speed till I hit my four miles and I think I finished roughly at 32 minutes.

When we got home we had lunch and then we spent a good hour skating together and we had so much fun. Yesterday Mira got an ice skating outfit for her American Girl Doll as it was her 6th birthday so she was practicing with “Elisabet” while me and Knut was playing hockey. I never realized how much of your “lats” you actually use shooting the puck but it was a gently reminded as they are very sore from yesterday’s workout 🙂
