First of all due to Joshua's recent bootcamp implementation, I must admit that had he not gotten up this morning to run on the treadmill, I would have stayed in bed for another rest day, which would have been two rest days in a row!!!
So, here's what my workouts have looked like over the last several days. After my ten mile run on Saturday, I helped Joshua finish the ceiling in our basement. I can't even tell you how many times I went up and down the ladder and the stairs to clean up some of the trash from the project! We really like how it's coming together!
Sunday, we enjoyed our Easter morning with our church family. My dear hubby and I filled in for the 5th and 6th grade Sunday school class and had such a great time with those kids (and I think we made a pretty good team). After we came home we worked on the basement a bit more. We've given ourselves a goal to have this project finished before a lot of our summer travel plans arrive! I spent Sunday afternoon moving all of the laminate floor across the basement as well as from out in the shop. This was quite a task :)
Monday night I asked my dear hubby what else I could help with. He told me that I could take out the laminate flooring out of the craft room. We're both a little frustrated as there's nothing wrong with this flooring other than we don't care for the color and wanted it to match the rest of the basement. I carefully took it out trying to minimize damaging any pieces, as we're going to try and sell the flooring.
And here's Joshua working on the stairs. This part has to be done before we can lay the new flooring and wrap up the basement project!
My intent of this post is to encourage you to think outside the box with your workouts. I started to fall into the trap that I needed to complete my regular workouts on top of these projects. My body quickly reminded me that it's okay to have a few days where you're not adding miles or reps. It's also been quite rewarding to work beside this man and actually be of some help.
