Today I was all about functional exercise. We raked the leaves for a little over an hour and I burned 423 calories. It’s such a great all body workout. My arms and back are sore!
So we finished raking the leaves and loaded up hubby’s truck to take them to our city refuse dump. We JUST pulled into the dump and his truck quit. He couldn’t get it started again no matter what he tried. So I said, “well, let’s just run home!” Thankfully we were dressed well for running, but I have to say that this was the first time I have ever run in gardening gloves!!
Sometimes you just have to make the best out of what is thrown at ya! The run was about 1.4 miles, so I decided just to finish it off to 2 miles. I burned 362 calories and earned 2 points for the first day of the Holiday Bootie Buster Challenge! Yay!
So today we had a couple of functional workouts. It sort of felt different running when we were running because we were actually trying to get somewhere! I might have to try that again…in a more planned way!
