Good news comrades! I won a heart rate monitor through a Cardio Tennis competition over at Planning With Kids recently.
I’d tried one before but haven’t had my own.
So I thought I’d do a bit of speeding up the old heart rate today, but at very long intervals as I’m single handing the four kids. Still got to be good for me, I’m sure.
The twins and I had to drop off a relative who’s staying. So we popped down to nearby North Curly and walked down to the beach.
Not a great day for it, very grey.
But we raced up a sand dune. What a killer!
Then the toothless twins did some balancing.
And we did a mini-jog along the beach, then walked to the flags and I threw myself into the crashing waves.
Which certainly got my heart rate going.
Here at home there’s been some jumping on the trampoline. I thought my heart rate would be much higher than 128 which is the maximum I got to.
Later I might hirple up the hill in our cul de sac, maybe a game of tip… or kiss, cuddle or torture.
No doubt I will have to do some chasing and wrestling to get the tearaway twins into bed.
I could try my eldest son’s drum kit, it certainly makes him sweat.
No sex though, my hubby has gone off to work again, back Feb 9th.
Has your heart rate got up today?
Should I just have parked the kids in from of the TV and gone for a 30 minute jog instead??
