Agility Training for Moms

Agility is the ability to change the body's position efficiently, and requires the integration of isolated movement skills utilizing a combination of balance, coordination, speed, reflexes, strength, endurance, and stamina.

As a Mom being Agile is important but you don't know this until you are running down the sidewalk with your 7 year old. As you jump into the air to hit the speed limit sign, because you were racing to the sign in the first place, you realize as your left foot lands on the line where the sidewalk meets the grass that you should of probably practiced these movements a few times before executing the motions. The following pictures will show you the results of not being in the best agile condition.

Right hand injured from impact with concrete.

Notice the size of the left ankle compared to the right.


Close up of the left ankle in all it's puffy soreness.

Wound on the arm from impact with concrete.

Ouched up left hand the right one looks worse I think, at least it hurts more.

Skinned up knee.

So much for being cool in front of the 7 year old. I hate when I do things like that in front of my kids. Sorry that sucks:)

Ouch!!!

And for future reference I also don't recommend showing your kids how to do flips on the monkey bars either. I tried this and even thought I was impressed with myself that I could still get myself up and down from those things, the 1 foot worth of black and blue on the back of my legs was enough to prove to me that I am not as young as I used to be.

Hope that you heal quickly.
