Played Soccer Everyday for One Month

Sunday, May 16, 2010

While I was in India and completely out of my cycling routine, I had hoped to do something to stay in shape but I wasn't sure what. That "something" ended up being that I played soccer with the kids from the orphanage for 1-2 hours everyday, and when we didn't play soccer we played field hockey. Keeping up with those youngsters did keep me in shape and I had a lot of fun along the way as well!

    That sounds like fun and a good way to get some exercise as well.

Just Resting

Saturday, May 15, 2010

I've been home from India since about 1:30 p.m. on Thursday and I scheduled a couple of days just to rest and try to get my clock turned around. The first part is working out okay, but not the second! Oh well, I'll get there at some point.

    I travel quite a bit too, and it takes me a day or two to get squared away if I have crossed multiple time zones.

Back from India

Friday, May 14, 2010

Well, I had hoped to keep up with SP while I was away in India over the last month but I was in a fairly remote area and my internet access was almost nil. Certainly not nearly enough speed to spark! I literally took anywhere from 5-20 minutes just to download e-mails and often the connection would cut out right in the middle of the process. It was frustrating but good to be cut off from the instant gratification that is America.

Anyhow, it's good to be home and good to be back on SP!

    Sounds like you're on the right track -
to concur with siriradha the stairs will definitely take care of any worries re: maintaining endurance! Do a 2 extra floors fast for me today.

    If you do half of the activities you have planned on a fairly consistent basis you should be good. I know not same muscles as biking but it will keep endurance up. Esp running & stairs & lunges for legs.
God bless your trip and shooting those prayers.
In Christ's Love,
Brenda

    As long as you have those stairs to run, you are in NO danger of losing your endurance! I'll be shooting up prayers for you, too!

How to Exercise on a Trip to India

Tuesday, April 13, 2010

1. Since I have to be to the airport early but will most likely get through with plenty of time to spare, I will walk around the airport as fast as I can with my 40 lb backpack on for as long as I can.

2. Ditto when I'm in Paris for three hours.

3. Resist the urge to walk quickly up and down the aisles on the plane so I don't get shot by the air marshal! Or put another way, value rest as part of health!

4. When I get to India, I will spend a full day at a Ramada Inn which has an exercise room and a pool. I'll do as much as I can of what sounds best at the time.

And then, alas, I will arrive to my final destination and have plenty of opportunities for exercise over the next month including walking, soccer, cricket, running, playing with the children I'm going to see, running up and down the stairs, crunches of various sorts, push ups, knee bends, lunges, etc.

Hope you have a great day, pray for me while I'm gone.
