Prophet!

    bouncy house...rented one of those things for my son's birthday party last Sunday. 20 minutes in there with the kids and it felt like i just ran a 20 miler...just can't keep up with the kids.


    Needs more cowbell!

      Hubby once played on a trampoline with DS and a friend's kids...he must have been on there for close to an hour. He whined about how much he hurt for DAYS! Wink k

      I've got a fever...

        Got a birthday party this weekend with one of those. Maybe it'll be good hamstring work... Wink

        On your deathbed, you won't wish that you'd spent more time at the office.  But you will wish that you'd spent more time running.  Because if you had, you wouldn't be on your deathbed.

          One hour trampolining for a novice and your lower back will certainly let you know next day. ...and watch out for those bouncy castles they can be pretty dangerous - especially when the adults get on in force. <takes> Wink</takes>

                  You know what kept me from taking up running for so long...my post-pregnancy bladder. I had read that women with bladder issues should avoid high impact activities, including running...but I haven't really had any problems. In fact, all of the exercise and ab work seems to have helped those "leaky" muscles. k

                    First they created adult dodgeball. Why can't someone create those bouncy things for adults too?

                      they actually do have them for adults...much bigger in size..i've been to a party where they have one of those. Naturally you want to get your bounce on early in the party rather than later for health reasons.


                      You'll ruin your knees!

                            Since you talk about those T-Rex arms, maybe go with the kickboxing instead of the fist... Tongue
