Fitness Fun

Yesterday I took Sian and Fiona hiking. While we were waiting for Sian’s scout buddy to arrive, we took a quick walk around the entrance area of the park, and found an exercise center. We had a lot of fun trying out the different stations to see what we could do. Fiona was particularly excited about the incline push-ups. She tries her best to do push-ups at home, but is a little too young to really understand proper form. Using the bar though, she was able to do four on her own!

It gave me a chance to challenge myself as well. I took a look at the pull up bar and decided I was going to give it a go. I’ve never been good at pull-ups. My first attempt as an adult was one. Yeah. One. After 6 months of training I was able to improve my performance by 100%. (That sounds a lot better than saying I could do 2!) This weekend, though- I did 5. It’s still not a highly impressive number, but I’m proud- darn it!

Sian, Fiona,  and I are already making plans to go to the park again this weekend. It probably won’t be Bonita Lakes (we have to go to Jackson) but I know we can find another park with a fitness center to play at.

And now, just for fun, some more pictures of our park workout!
