I am wearing my smallest pair of jeans today, without tucking, pinching, pulling or breath-holding necessary! WOO-HOO! I decided to keep this pair when I got rid of two other pairs of jeans I had bought in a fit of insanity a couple years ago. Good thing.
Surely, there are many factors in play here, but it can be chalked up to kicking back slightly and keeping away from the dairy products. This week I did weigh myself each morning and I am fighting weight once more. Yay for periodization!
Next Tuesday I am going to do my first group ride, with the Yay Bikes people. Not really sure about how long the ride is, where it goes, or anything other than the group meets at Goodale Park at 6pm each Tuesday. Being on the bike will feel good, regardless if it is warm enough (i.e. over 70 degrees).
Managed to jack up my hips somehow they hurt something fierce. I noticed it in my right hip after the half, but chalked it up to exertion. Now, though owwie it has moved into both hips and settled where I would imagine the lower wings of the hipbones flare out. Possibly piriformis syndrome or I need new shoes. It goes away after I have warmed up but I get stiff once I stop. Ow.
Got my new Road ID this week after losing the one I got for Christmas. Everyone should have one of these I am still thinking of the person lying out on Olentangy River Road, eyes closed, bib flipped up because you never know when you might not be able to communicate. Your life is worth $25! End of PSA.
The summer is stretching out before me and I have made a list of things I want to do this year:
--Group rides & runs
--Quidditch League practice (yes, there are formal teams that play a modified version of the Harry Potter game and yes, there are championships)
--Do some outdoor yoga
--Hit the trails: Kokosing Gap, Hocking Hills and Tar Hollow
--Swimming, lots and LOTS of swimming
--I have not broken my tailbone for almost 20 years so I am about due to try skateboarding or in-line skating again
--All the nice festivals & other free events around the city
Getting excited already for strawberry picking, berry season and planting a larger garden area. I think I will do a lot more tomatoes and no jalapenos this year possibly a row of basil and a cucumber or two.
What is on your summer to-do list?
