I got myself upside down (with help), and stayed in handstand against the wall. I've been working on that and this week I was able to walk my legs up one wall and toss them across to the other. It may be a bit of cheating; I still can't kick all the way up to the wall, but I don't care. :) I got myself upside down and could hold it. I didn't even feel shaky. I believe all of my push-ups and pull-ups are starting to pay off.
Right now, I working on doing 50 push-ups and 50 pull-ups (using a green band for assist) 3x's a week. The goal is on Tuesday, Friday, and Sunday. Wednesday I plan on adding in a bit of extra core work after my run.
Running felt more difficult this week. It may have been because of the extra arm/shoulder work. My shoulders felt tired when I ran on Thursday. They've never felt like that before. Who knew tired shoulders could affect your run?
It's been a busy week. I spent a lot of time driving my kids places, and getting ready for my middle son's birthday. He turned 12. I think he had a pretty good birthday week. He got to visit with a friend who had moved out of country, and for his birthday he got an iPod touch (which he has wanted forever) and a Rip Stick skateboard. He's a happy 12 year old boy.
Also this week, we got something fun. My husband won a gift certificate and we used it towards the purchase of a trampoline! We have 4 kids still at home who are very excited about the trampoline. It got put together today, and they've had a lot of fun jumping. I think it's a great way to get the kids outside and away from the computer.
