Vegas Vacation Workout!

You can workout on Vacation without going to the icky gym. If you have a kid it’s even better. My daughter wants to spend the day in the pool. I decided to take advantage of that. I could have laid by the pool & ate and drank. That would be lots of calories and not fun. Don’t get me wrong I did eventually have a drink and shrimp avocado ceviche but that was after 2 hours in the pool. We played volleyball ,basketball and I used a noodle thing for resistance training. We raced and dunked each other under water. I was exhausted when I got out. I finally convinced her to play with the other kids in the pool. She stayed in another two hours. I have a pool at home. I have to remember that on really hot days it’s a great way to exercise. I don’t use my pool nearly as much as I should. Do you have any favorite pool exercises?

Running Shoe Update

Yeah, I got my shoes. I’m trying the minimalist barefoot thing. I can’t do the 5 finger toes. They just didn’t feet my feet right. I bought Merrell Pace Gloves. I couldn’t wait to try them out so I tried the treadmill at the hotel gym. So far so good. My feet felt good and I didn’t get numbness in my shins. I didn’t do a full test. I did 1 minute intervals for about 20 minutes in the hotel gym. I couldn’t do any longer .The ventilation sucked and it was way too hot in there. I’m just not a gym girl. Too many people. I prefer to exercise at home or outside. I will have to try the track at my daughters school. It may be the Sangria I had last night or  hanging out at Eve’s at CityCenter Vegas. Either way I’m not able to hang like I used to;)
