Blading with the Baby

Today's Workout: Rollerblading 5 miles with Baby J

Tomorrow's Workout: 12 mile run

Thought: “Moderation is a virtue only in those who are thought to have an alternative.” -Henry Kissinger

Today Baby J and I headed to the river trail to go rollerblading. The trail is the only place I feel safe blading with him because I'm not the world's best stopper. There are probably better things I could do for cross training, but I've decided that I want to cross train with Baby J more so I can spend more time with him outside and feel like training isn't ruling my life, just enhancing it.

I really hope my children enjoy the outdoors as much as I do. When I take Baby J, whether I'm rollerblading or running, I don't bring my music so I can talk to him and point things out to him. I don't think he understands half the stuff I say, but I know someday he will, so that's all that matters. I think I get more out of having him with me than he does at this point. At any rate, I had a fun workout today and I'm pumped for tomorrow's 12 mile run.


  1. i'm sure rollerblading is an excellent workout and you definitely can't beat time with baby j!

  2. Sounds like the perfect x-training workout and I'm sure baby J appreciates the quality time - even if he doesn't know it yet!
