10th Jan 2014: Walking at Work
I’m getting the distinct impression I need to pick up my speed!

This is Day 10 of a 30 Day Post-a-Healthy-Picture challenge

1st Sedentary Circuit Breakers

Mmm… Sweaty biscuits
August 8, 2013

sweatybiscuitsMum: Did you make the cakes today or just decorate them?

Boy: We just decorated them.

Mum: How did you decorate yours?

Boy: We had to do something sporty on them and mine was awesome!

Mum: What was it?

Boy: It was me – sweating! Because I was running so much. And I really did that today – I ran a lot.
Actually it wasn’t me sweating, it was me with a swoosh behind me – you know when you’re running SO fast that the air swooshes? It tasted sooooo yummy.

Going nowhere

Trains in training

An exercise routine
November 9, 2012

D: Have you won any sweets?

Me: I don’t want any sweets.

D: Why?

Me: Because I won’t burn off the sugar like you – I’m sat down all day and not running around.

D: I know what you could do – you could drop me off at Vikki’s, and then you could run around – round and round – in Vikki’s car park for 3 minutes, and then get in the car and go to work. That’s my idea.

Me: It’s quite a good idea, but it’ll mean I’m late for work. Maybe I’ll run around at work during lunchtime.

D: But you’re not allowed to run at work…

Me: You are, if you find the right place.

D: And the right place is… Outside! Is it?

Me: Yes.

Getting the runaround
November 6, 2012

Me: Do you still play with Liam at school?

D: Oh. He forgot! I tried to remind him, but he’s a faster runner than me!

Me: So who did you play with today?

D: No-one, I just ran around on my own – round and round.

Posh man running
September 12, 2012

D: Do you know how to do Posh Man Running?
Me: No.
D: We learnt it in P.E. – it’s like this: You have a moustache [holds forefinger across his top lip], have a hat [pretends to put a tall hat on with both hands], have your arms like this [positions arms and hands like he’s about to do a train impression]. Then run!

Amazing people
September 2, 2012

D: You know the Olympics?

Me: Yes?

D: Mikayla showed me a picture on her phone of a man with no legs, but he had elastic for his legs.

Me: Oh yes, the Paralympics. Those people are amazing!

D: Why?

Me: It’s people without arms and legs and things who’re doing sports anyway. What was the man you saw doing – running? Cycling? Swimming?

D: He was running. So where were his legs?

Me: Gone to heaven – they didn’t work, so he didn’t need them.

D: Did their spirit go?

Me: No, their spirit stayed – that’s why the man was being so amazing at the running. He could have sat at home with no legs and done nothing. But instead of saying “I can’t run”, he said “I CAN run” – he put the elastic things on and he ran. Really fast. He’s proving that you can do anything if you want to do it enough. The most important part of you is your head – with your brain in it.

D: Yeah, and you shouldn’t ever take your brain out.

Me: No, you should avoid taking your brain out.

D: Unless you’re a baddie – then you can be chased and have your brain taken out.

Me: Well, people who behave badly need to be taught to think differently with their brain.

D: Oh, yes…
