Sarah loves maps.
So I decided to combine these two favourite thing into a fun summer activity. On my last day of work, I grabbed a map of all of the schools in Richmond and decided we were going to get to as many new parks as we could this summer. This past week we made it to two parks "we never been to before."
We hang upside down.
We all set goals for ourselves. Sarah is working on being able to move across the monkey bars all by herself.
I am trying to improve my flexed arm hang.
Anyone else remember the Canada fitness testing in elementary school? You know the one where you were timed on your flexed arm hang and how many sit ups you could do in a minute and a host of other tests including something called the shuttle run? At the end of the testing everyone received a badge with a colour (gold, silver or bronze) based on their results. Well my colour was always participation. It all happened many moons ago, but I remember it like it was yesterday. I couldn't do a flexed arm hang to save my soul. This summer, I vow to improve my time and these park ventures are a good place to start. I think I am officially up to two whole seconds of flexed arm hanging. Maybe by the end of the summer I will be able to do it for five seconds. I will keep you posted.
