Last Friday, July 3rd, we embarked on another 15k walk with our kiddos. Now that they know they can endure the long walk, they kept asking us to do it again and so we did. It wasn't plan, it was just an spontaneous thing. We all agreed to go for a walk after we ate brunch so we didn't leave until past 11 in the morning. I has been raining here so we took advantage of that dry day even though it was a little hot.
My daughter prepared some drinks in her backpack before we left. (NOTE to SELF: I have to adjust the date of my camera, it is one day behind lol)
We dropped by at this Little Critters store that we have never been into before. There we found so many beautiful pets. Our daughter has been wanting a guinea pig when our bunny died so we said she can have one for her birthday. We didn't buy it yet but we are planning to go back there next week.
I love that my kids are on board with physical activities like this. We are planning to do a 5k run in August so this is a great practice for all of us.
It's a great bonding for the two and for me and my husband. They oftentimes walk together and talk about their friends while hubby and I listens.
In dangerous parts, we do separate into teams. Hubby get our son and I get my daughter with me.
I need a new running shoes, my feet are getting sore from my old Therafit pair. I have been using this for a couple of year so I think it is time for me to get a new one.
Hydrating during the course of the walk is very important but the only issue is it makes you want to go to the bathroom, lol.
This is what I like about doing cardio outdoors. You get o go up or down. It helps to make you agile.
They thought this place is for them. It is a nursery of one of the curches we passed by downtown.
Okay, here is a muscle battle. They were asking us whose guns is bigger, lol. I think my son won, he does some push ups ponce in a while at home. Passing football with hjis Dad also help form his muscular arms.
Taking a short break in front of Mary H. Weir Library. The kids wanted to go inside the library to get some cool wind but we didn't have our library card so we couldn't.
Going up Marland Hieghts, we asked the kids if they want to go to the trail instead of hiking up the Marland Heights Hill/road. They chose the trail since they have never went that way yet.
I am glad they chose to go that way because it was so hot already and the trees will give them some relieve from over heating.
My father-on-law was in a great mood when we arrived at his house. He kept telling us why are we torturing ourselves by walking, lol. We were so glad he wasn't drunk when we got there.
We took the shorter but dangerous path going backm the Cover Road Hill. We were scared as we have the kids with us. BUt the rain was threatening to dump on us so we thought taking this path was the way to go. MY husband said, never again to take the kids in this road, it was really scary with the children with us. We were all fine but it's not worth taking the risk.
2 to 3 miles of this road has no side walk so it's really siky to walk there.
I wish I have this digital pedometer already when we went for a walk so I could have known how much steps it is fro our home and back. But there is always next time so I will know for sure since I have this already. I got this Ozeri 4x3razor Digital Pocket 3D pedometer with Bosch Tri-Axis Technology from Germany, in Sport Yellow for review.
This digital pedometer by Ozeri is the world's thinnest and most advanced 3D Tri-Axis pedometer. I have one of Ozeri's pedometer before and I can say that I like this one the best. This 4x3razor utilizes a new advanced 3D Bosch sensor from Germany with Tri-Axis technology that provides superior accuracy in any position, whether up, down, flat, on its side, or at any angle.
I used it the first time yesterday when I went for my brisk walking in the morning around our neighborhood. I love that tis pedometer ships with an installed and extra Lithium battery, a belt clip and detachable lanyard and instruction manual. The first pedometer that I got from Ozeri did not have an extra battery. It also has a small screw driver which is really good and handy when you have to replace the battery. I love the accuracy of this pedometer.
This is definitely gonna be put in use with my waks and jogging. Thanks Ozeri! You can buy this pedometer here.
