A few days ago, we were in Boston for my sister in law’s wedding (YAY!) and the afternoon after the wedding we were all looking for something to do. Nine or 10 of us ended up at the park down the street, playing frisbee, napping in the sun, and eventually doing handstands & cartwheels. There is just something about the fall air & a big stretch of grass that makes it easy to play like a kid…. no matter how old of a kid you are! After my first cartwheel, the hubs wsa super surprised… “wait.. you can do that? We’ve been together for over 5 years & I’ve never seen you do that!” I have more surprises up my sleeve still Mr E Persing! After 30 min or so of handstands, my abs were aching! Funny how things you took for granted when you were 8 years old that really kick some major butt nowadays. Now, two three days later, my super stiff arms, shoulders, abs, and legs are finally starting to mobilize again. Who knew regular ol’ playing could be such an amazing workout!?! It was so much fun to goof off & I was so sore the next day that I know there will be more handstands & cartwheels to come…maybe it will become the new Saturday workout? 3 reps of 15… go!
Do you have an unexpected & fun workout routine? Do tell!
