After the run I grabbed the kids and we went and picked peas for an hour. Now I get to shell the little buggers. I think I have already eaten a pint of them they are so good fresh right out of the pod. The kids did really great helping for about 45 minutes and then they were pretty much over it.
I had a guest post on Gourmet Runner yesterday. I posted about my favorite form of cross training. BodyRock.tv. Check it out here if you want! Several people have asked about what I do for my sandbag. I took an old bag I had and filled it with rice in 5 and 10 pound bags. This makes is easy to adjust the weight of the bag for different exercises. Too light add 5, too heavy take out 10. It isn't the perfect solution but it has worked really great for me. I know of other bodyrockers who have used backpacks for the sandbag.
Here is what mine looks like. Nothing fancy with some duct tape to help make it a little more comapact, but I can still get the zipper open to adjust the weight if I need to. I find that usually between twenty and thirty pounds works great for me.
You want to be able to rest it comfortably on your shoulders on each side. I have some hat head going on here so ignore the crazy hair. :)
and lift if over your head. As well as being able to lift it for dead lifts and cradle it in your arms in front of you. If you can do all these things with it, it should work for all the things they do in BodyRock.tv workouts.
On a side note, the cotton is flying off the cotton trees, in some areas it looks like it has snowed!
Kind of pretty and I am so glad I am not allergic to it! Especially since it is all over my garden and I seem to get quite a lot of it in the lettuce when I bring it home.
