This evening I had a country dancing gig with the performance team of the dance group I belong to. We earn money for our dance group by performing English Country Dancing at senior centers, summer colonial festivals, “Washington slept here” houses, and the occasional ice cream social. For once, the gig was actually near home, at a community center only 1.6 miles away according to Google Maps walking directions. Yes, they do walking directions in addition to driving directions!
So I walked there, did the dances I was in (which is exercise in itself) and then walked home! When you do an exercise that isn’t what you are training for (dancing as opposed to walking), it is cross-training. It is an important part of my training schedule! I am looking forward to adding DDR as cross training, hoping to add in another zumba class at school, and swimming in the summer.
3.2 miles for the day logged.
Total miles walked in training to date: about 5
