We drove about 45 minutes out from where we live to find ourselves at...
|Did someone say camping?!|
My step-mom, brother and sister, who absolutely love camping, were already there (and were staying there) for about...
A week's time!
For those who don't know me too well...
I'm not really big into camping! (We never camped out as kids, unless we were in the backyard!)
|And fishing ,well...|
I'm still getting used to that ;)
Don't get me wrong though...
I have gone out in the bush before (with the condition I could bring Marshmallows) and yes...
I did have a great time!
|Does the cottage count as camping?|
Rhetorical question lol
I wouldn't ever think to make camping a vacation! (The Masta shares the same opinion as me lol)
That being said...
I'm not going to say it will never happen because I'm sure it will...some day! (SuperFit does enjoy camping so I'm pretty confident he could
bribe convince me into it with Marshmallows or something lol)
And I'm sure my dad could also be convinced...
Given the right incentive!
|Doesn't take much to get a FU going ;)|
I bet you he has not one but two marshmallows in his mouth! lol
This particular evening at the campground was bound to be relaxing and FUn!
From Campground to Training Ground...
SuperFit and I went for walk to check out the place!
We soon came to a playground where...
SuperFit immediately got into training mode!
Within a matter of minutes...
He found all sorts of workouts to do using the simple structures available to
us the kids!
In no time...
Did he turn our play time into training time!
He thought this would be a good opportunity for me to practice some 'basic skills' for my upcoming Spartan race! (Which I haven't backed out of! lol)
If you hear something that sounds like a Dolphin....
That would be me, laughing.
Here's a look into some of the things he had me do:
|I started small by...|
Using the Child Monkey Bars.
It's tougher than it looks lol
|I did 4!|
I surprised SuperFit by doing more than just one lol
I'll be sure to add Chin Ups to my Fitness Bucket List.
10 by the end of 2012.
Modified Upside Down Plank Rows using the rails (working my Back, Biceps and Abs):
He also had me practice my climbing skills by going up The Wall of
|I had no issue going up.|
Coming down was another story.
A kid was looking at me at the bottom. Laughing.
As well as climbing...
The Spider Structure!
In all of this FUn and training...
I discovered I may be a tad afraid of heights!
I also quickly came to realize...
1. How easily you can turn your surroundings into a workout environment;
2. How much I love
3. How my brother and sister would have no problem kicking my butt in all of these challenges!
Don't ever underestimate the power of youth!
|Little Jeff rocking it.|
Me, trying to rock it...
**I also couldn't help but think of Miz's daugther, The Tornado, who rocks the Monkey Bars...unlike me! lol!**
|He ain't afraid of no heights!|
A master of the spider structure.
Let's just say...
Good thing I got some practice time before my upcoming race! lol
Back to the party...
Without going into great detail...
We had a great evening filled with food, love and laughs :)
|Can you believe we FIT 13 at a table?!|
|I brought my own meal!|
Chicken, Lettuce, Cherry Tomatoes, Salsa and Mustard.
|We got him a new camera!|
All in all...
I think I may be going back to the campground sooner than I'd imagine! lol
