Oh how good it was to be back out in the park?!
I had to cycle to the cash machine down the road to get some money for Jel and then into the park – my legs were aching and my heart racing just from that! So I was slightly worried as to quite how much fitness I’ve lost. Then did a couple of loops in the park that were slightly flatter and it felt great!
Jel arrived and after some mobilisation a massive tractor tyre was brought out along with a sledge hammer – firstly I had the pleasure of sitting on the tyre and standing up for 10, the 10 step ups on the tyre, then 10 sits, 8 step ups, etc down to 10 sits and 2 step ups. It certainly got my legs working!
Then the fun really started – me, a tyre and the hammer. It got hit from various angles and i loved it! Have discovered though that despite being left handed I’m much more coordinated with my right. Have also learnt to be wary of the hammer bouncing off the tyre (although it has made for an amazing bruise…..)
We then did some boxing and amazingly it was time to stretch…. Time flies when you’re having fun! Also spotted a beautiful rainbow as the sun came out after the rain
I do love being back outside and having fun
