We are moving into Week 3 of our Move It Mondays! Are you meeting your goals? This week I ran 9.75 miles so I was just under my weekly goal of 10 miles. I will have to make it up this week!
I’ve noticed when I run I get a lot of aches and pains because I’m working the same muscles over and over again so last week, I decided to join a hula class with my friend. I joined mainly because she asked and I thought it would be super fun. But, I also joined because I’ve been having some back problems and I thought it would be a great way to work my core muscles and hopefully get rid of my pain. After an hour of class I could feel the burn in my core, my hips and my arms which was awesome!! Hula was so much fun and quite a workout. Stepping into class was like stepping into a different world. I was greeted with a hug, a kiss and a huge smile from complete strangers. I was given a hula dress and told that I had to put in on over my head and could not step into it. There was chanting, there was singing and of course dancing. It was so much fun trying something new. I want to encourage you to step out of your comfort zone and try something new as well. Who knows you may like it!
As you are exercising this week please remember to pray for everyone affected by the Boston Marathon Explosions.
