That Counts Right!

When you're injured, you may find yourself rationalizing the everyday tasks into workouts! It's hard to not be able to do what you really want, and it's even harder to admit to yourself that walking, is suddenly stressful to your body. That is how Coach and I got into a discussion about whether or not our Saturday night trip to the Corn Maze could be considered a true workout for a couple of gimps like us! You can decide for yourself!

The Facts
  • We did 3 Mazes total.
  • The first 2 Mazes (if done correctly) would total 4 miles.
  • We definitely did not do it correctly, I would say more like 5 miles (some awesome kids tore down the map at checkpoint 2 and Raya and I may have failed getting us to checkpoint 5 with the 10 sec look @ the map rule!)
  • At some points we tried to skip to vary the mood, throwing in some plyos
  • We climbed at least 3 bridges!
  • Screaming uses muscles right?
  • Eating Ice Cream also burns calories right?
  • Well, here is the photographic evidence of our night!
    About to enter the labyrinth of corn, and stupid teenagers!
    Our First Checkpoint!
    We got pretty good at the self portrait!
    Yay, we made it through the first maze!
    And here is Jesse about to exit the second one!
    Coach and I, before doing the Haunted one! (Not that spooky, but we did get one of the spookers to answer the following question correctly, "Which bear is best?" do you know?)
    Raya and Nathan (Jesse's brother)
    Mmm, Ice Cream!
    We're creepy!
     Of course, after our Ice Cream, we were feeling gutsy and made the mistake of saying "Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice!" Don't try it at home! Look what happened...
he is pretty dreamy in person though! It was a fun night, and despite my knee really hurting the next day, it was great to take my mind off the fact that I can't do anything! The Holidays are great for that!

Definitely counts as a workout! And I'm sure eating ice cream burns calories since your body has to warm itself back up. Right?

Heather said...

Go WITHOUT kids. Why did I think of that!
It looks like you are being energetic so I say YES. It is a workout.
