Adventures of a Bobble Headed Woman

On Sunday after Church, the family all headed over to "The Mountain Man"'s house to visit. He got them acquainted with his horses and they all rode bare back around his corral. It was a fun day for them. They love spending time with him, and had many tales to tell. I stayed home with Moonbeam so she could nap and I could get stuff done.
On Monday, after a marathon bake off in the kitchen and doing school with the kids, I ran with the Dolphin Goddess. Wow did she put me through a good work out! We ran her route, which I'd never done before. It seemed really tough, even though we only ended up running 2 1/2 miles all told. We walked the last half mile. I think she figured I'd huffed and puffed enough. Since she came from an athletic family, she advised me on some running tips. Namely, to try and stop wobbling my head to and fro. I don't have much form to begin with, but apparently my head begins bobbling when I near exhaustion. I got this terrible image of trying to run a 5K with her and Mist. In my imagination, I am almost to the finish line, and people are pointing and marveling at the strange bobble headed woman. When I returned to reality, I thanked her, and made a mental note to work on keeping my head on straight. Really, silliness aside, I loved running with my Dolphin Friend. I felt challenged, which I always appreciate.
On Tuesday, after school with the kids, and getting Moonbeam down for her nap, I met SejKay out in her Kayak on the river. Last week, we'd tried to make it to "the old abandoned bridge", but didn't get that far. Today, with her dog, Sug, running along the banks, we made it to our destination. A bunch of cows mooed at us, and we we saw lots of ducks and Canadian Honkers along the way. I brought her one of my power cookies and we snacked on them along the way back. It's been a pretty good week so far.

You certainly live in God's country - love your exercise program! (I have exercise envy)

It's great the kids got to go riding! Sounds like you're busy at home and enjoying your exercise ventures.

Wish I could exercise with you, too! :)

well, take comfort in the fact that you aren't the only one...I was on the elliptical at the gym and I was watching through the massive windows as some poor guy hobbled around the track, arms akimbo..legs flying willy nilly.
I honestly thought he was going to hurt himself.
At least it's just your head.
Great exercise..great photos.
Sounds like an all around great day.

Glad you are having a good week Outdoor Mom. I would not worry about your bobble head, at least you are out there doing it. Ya know? And you have so much on your plate with nursing, homeschooling, kids, hubby, etc. You are terrific!
