|Lily was excited to mark off each round|
This morning I accidentally slept in- like most of the world, my iphone had a glitch and I didn't make it to the gym in time for my class. I hate missing my Crossfit class and, because of this thing called Life, 5:30am is the only time I can go- needless to say, I was slightly pissed...
Today was also a school holiday for my daughter, so I decided we would take my son to preschool and enjoy the morning together...... doing a Driveway WOD!
I had to first get it through my head that I may not get the most intense workout ever, but that we were going to have a good time. Lily is really into jumping rope, so our WOD looked like this:
30 Double unders 10 jump rope attempts
15 Pullups 6 pullups using my hands to stand on
3 rounds ride her bike down the driveway a few times while I'm finishing my
Next it was ab work time. I made the mistake of thinking I could do some Medball situps and throw the ball to her on the way up. Um, 6 lbs is actually a lot for a 5 year old to catch- she fell over when I threw it to her! Note to self....
She did help me count my reps and attempted to do a few Russian Twists and mountain climbers. And you know what? In the end it's really all about getting her to see exercise in a fun way and to get excited about it like I am. I know we are setting a good example for our kids- I mean, come on- they love Burpees!
