Take for example splitting, hauling and stacking wood!
My PIC/BFF Dawn and I have a name for this workout: The Woodbitch.
Basically, I am my husbands wood
More snow on the way today and into tomorrow. Are you kidding me?? God, please. Enough already...
Anyway, darling hubby tried to teach me how to split wood with the maul earlier in the season but that did not go quite as planned and I got frustrated with the whole thing. Needless to say
ME + a giant wood maul + frustration = BAD
So I will stick with picking up all the wood HE splits, stacking into gloriously neat plies or filling up the wheel barrow and sending it down the bulk head into the basement and then make more beautiful stacks and piles of wood.
I enjoy doing projects like this with hubby, we work together to do something for the family and I am moving my body. I love the way my core feels doing this kind of work. This weeks woodbitch workout was a painful one.
One giant flying chunk of wood bounced and landed directly on top of my foot. Luckily, it's only a bruise and I'll be just fine. I kind of freaked out a bit at first because the only thing I could think of was 'NO RUNNING' but the pain subsided after a while and like I said, just a bruise.
|Ignore the toenails-they are still recovering from summer/fall running!|
I ran another 4 miles today and it's going great!
