25 Mile Bike Ride

Thursday, March 31, 2011

Got out on the first longer ride yesterday since being back from India. It sure felt good. It was about 42 degrees but no wind and clear as a bell outside. It's early in the cycling season so I didn't expect much, plus when it's chilly it's hard to keep the muscles warm enough that they fire well over a longer period of time, but to my surprise I came in at an average speed of 17.0. My goal for this year is to make 18.0 the new normal average so to already be at this pace early in the season is great news! I hope to get out again today but not sure I'm going to be able to, one way or the other I'll hit the road soon.

Hope you have a great day!

It sounds like you have already had a wonderful morning. Good job. The sun is still out so I am headed out myself.

Back from India

Wednesday, March 30, 2011

I've been in India visiting some friends for the last couple of weeks but I'm back and finally feeling rested. For whatever reason I always have a harder time adjusting when I come back than when I go, but one way or the other I'm starting to feel like myself again and I'm sleeping through the night.

Now, the trick is to get my fitness regimen back on the right track. I was able to exercise everyday while I was there but I got out of my rhythm which is okay, but again I have to find my groove again!

Hope you have a great day.

  


Lots of Exercise Today

Saturday, March 12, 2011

I haven't had much chance to exercise this week, and I'm leaving for India tomorrow where I'll be for two weeks. So today I cycled for 45 minutes, did a full body workout in the gym and then did another 80 minutes on the bike. I'm tired but I'm sure glad I got in a good workout before I left!

Hope you have a great rest of the day!

Oh Boy, I'm out of It

Friday, March 11, 2011

It's been a long week with little to no exercise and limited sleep and I am SO out of it! Furthermore, I'm going to India for a couple of weeks this Sunday and so am pressured to get a bunch of things done right now but all I want to do is go to sleep!

Maybe I should and just trust that the Lord will help me to get everything done tomorrow--you know what, I think I will!

    Seems when we are forced out of our "routines", it throws us for a loop and the stress of feeling out of control can be exhausting! Hope your trip goes well. It think you're safe trusting that you will get done what you need to.

One Last Day in Chi-Town

Thursday, March 10, 2011

Been in Chicago all week, heading home this evening. I can't wait to get out and run tomorrow as well as ride my bike. I haven't been able to exercise much here--literally going from sun up to 10 p.m. or even midnight--but I'll make up for it Friday AND Saturday, that's for sure.

Hope you have a great day!
