Biking Continues To Be De-Railed...

Sunday, March 08, 2009

Went to the park with the best of intentions once AGAIN today...but this time I noticed that during it's winter storage *somehow* (grrr!) the chain had come off and gotten tangled up and I was unable to get it going.

I was so steamed up I just stormed off and walked it off...probably made my best walking time yet...! lol

Off to the bicycle shop I go...

Don

ps, note to myself...I *REALLY* oughta be handier mechanically if I'm going to be riding this thing...!

Cycling Cx'd On Account of Rain... :-(

Saturday, March 07, 2009

Hustled home after working this morning hoping to get out for my first bicycling of the season...60 degrees here...!

But the clouds gathered and the rain fell too quickly...phooey!

Guess it's back to the 'mill once again...sigh...

Celebrating Two Months Cardio Streaking...!

Friday, March 06, 2009

Woo Hoo!! Today marks TWO MONTHS of cardio streaking for me! Been doing mostly my treadmill every day. For a few days I substituted cross country skiing. Lately I've been trying to get in two cardio sessions a day, morning and night...feeling like I need to stockpile my workouts in anticipation of my surgery...and no I have no date yet set for my surgery, hoping for within two weeks, but we'll see.

Haven't missed any of my 3 x week strength training either...and have been building up the number of reps and sets.

What kind of streaks are others building out there...?

Morning Inspiration

Thursday, March 05, 2009

Inspired workouts don't happen everyday, but when they DO I feel a special boost that stays with me throughout the day.

During my 'millwork this morning the sun rose spectacularly over the treetops and by the time I was done it was fully over the trees and I felt like I had my own special slice of sunshine just beaming my way and filling me with good will and peacefulness. I took a moment to spread my arms wide, close my eyes, lean back and bask, allowing the sun to fuel me and fill me with energy.

A special fellow Sparkie is undergoing surgery today and I'm sending this her way to insure a successful and healing day!

Celebrate the day everyone!
