Well ... now I have Team Europe in my house!
Last night I went down and did a couple of fast miles on the treadmill plus some weights & such. Then came upstairs, watched Miss Joannie Rochette skate a beautiful routine and bring home a Bronze medal for Canada. I was getting settled in on the couch with a blanket and the laptop. It was a busy day at work yesterday and I didn't get a chance to write a blog there.
Just as I settled in, my daughter came bounding in, begging me to come down to the gym and workout with her. She was lonely and wanted company. I SOOO did not want to go. I was really tired and my plan was to write a short blog and go to bed.
But my daughter is VERY persistent and she would not let up. I even sicced her on her Dad in the hopes that she'd leave me alone. Instead she roped him in AND still demanded that I come along.
Next thing I know the whole family is down there. So now I have Tommy Europe (aka my husband) and Tina Europe (aka my daughter).
Then, as I'm doing sit-ups my son comes over with the fitness ball and starts repeatedly dropping it on my stomach. Sure it's not heavy, but you can't help but to tightly cunch those abs as it drops. As I beg him to stop the drill sargeant in him comes out - and now I have Timmy Europe.
It was kinda fun though. As much as I didn't want an additional workout last night, I couldn't exactly pass up exercising with the whole family.
Not sure if I'll get to a post over the weekend. Tomorrow is my baby girl's 14th birthday and the Sunday is our next trail race (8Km) and we're planning to run home after that (another 10-11Km).
