The kids and I had a relaxing day at home. We had lots of wind today and a “brown out” which basically meant that everything worked, but was dim. We had full power by dinner time. WHEW.
I spent most of the day cooking. I made dinner for a friend (and us) at the same time. Sweet potato casserole, cornmeal crusted chicken tenders, and my favorite – Honey Whole Wheat rolls/bread. It was busy for sure.
After nap time, we headed to the JCC so I could take the BOSU class. Today was tough. Some weeks I feel like my balance on the BOSU is better and other days it’s horrible. Today, it was horrible. I think a lot of it is dependent on how firm the BOSU is. I’m not good at picking one out yet.
There is one exercise that I need to ask about. It involves lightly tapping your one foot on the ground when your other food it planted on the middle of the BOSU. I can’t seem to lightly tap and it is going to cause planter fasciitis if I don’t figure out a good subsitute until I am better at the exercise. I’ve had several bouts of planter fasciitis and I hope that I am not getting another. My right food is sore tonight.
Overall, I had a great workout. I did some of the exercises on the ground when the BOSU was too much and I’m ok with that. I like that I am comfortable modifying the exercises to my level as needed.
