Today I went for an execise walk and had trouble getting my heartrate up very high.. so I remembered reading how good skipping is for you.
So I skipped! I told myself I didn't care how silly I looked. I kept thinking of the Monty Python skit on the Institue of Silly Walks.. lol
Boy, it got my heartrate up! So I would skip about 30 seconds, then walk, then a bit of a jog, then I did this thing where I stepped up on the curb with one foot, and the gutter with another, and it really got my rear and thigh muscles.
Then I stopped at the park pavillion and stepped up and back down on the benches which were high. Boy, my hr went up! Then I lunge walked through the parking lot. That is tough.
I know I looked silly, but got a great workout. Then at the end it rained lightly and my neighbors came out to their car. He asked if I planned to get wet...
No, I said, but it sure felt good.
Try skipping.. you can't help but feel lighthearted! :)
