Anyway, Friday night, as I was putting off going to bed I came across the Inperspire Virtual Boot Camp challenge and signed up... what fun, I thought! I didn't do any of it Friday because I had my virtual race early Saturday and wanted to be "rested". Then after my race on Saturday, I was a little bit worn out so I only did a few jumping jacks (I thought my kids would want to do them with me, but they just laughed at me) and some of the push ups, a couple sit ups but not much. This left almost all of the challenge left to be completed Sunday. No problem, I told myself, I can do it... it's a rest day anyway and I have the whole day to spread it out across, no problem.
Well, yesterday morning rolled around about the same time I thought it would be fun to roll down the stairs. Yep, you read that right I fell down our stairs. Not only did I do that, I fell down them and promptly passed out. Luckily Dan came to see what was going on and caught me before I could face plant on the hardwood. I'm fine, minus a pretty bruised ego and a very bruised whole right side and a possibly dislocated elbow that popped back into place with a fair amount of pain about 10 minutes later... but enough about that. By the time Sunday afternoon rolled around, I was nursing a killer headache (and a cranky baby... might have contributed slightly to the headache :P) and thought the challenge might be done for. However, a couple super strength Tylenol and 4 kids in their beds later I managed to get in the rest of the challenge requirements during commercials for Lost.
Short story long... I finished the challenge and feel deserving of the badge at the top of the page.
300 jumping jacks - check
300 jump ropes - check
200 sit ups - check
100 push ups - check!
I am however quite sore today... some is from the push ups and sit ups but as most of the stiffness seems to be on the right side of my body I fear most of it is from my adventures in stair surfing!
