Go speed racer Go !

Friday, August 17, 2012

One of my goals for August was to be able to keep up with my sister Dottie and my spark sister Kathy while riding our bikes. Kathy and Dottie are still monsters on their bikes.

Normally when I ride the Delaware Canal with them they are Way ahead of me because my speed is usually only around 6.5 to 8 miles per hour.

Well last night my sister Dottie wanted to ride 1 hour and 45 minutes to reach a place called "Stoney Run Aqueduct" ( that was one of her goals )

Well guess what we did it ! My sister was kind enough to stay with me and to go at my speed ( which was a 10.5 to 11.2) a big improvement from weeks prior.

My strength and endurance has increased and it was not as bad as I thought it would be, but my lady parts sure do hurt today.

I'm looking forward to ride the canal again with them and be able to make it to
" New Hope Pa" (that's about another 6.5 miles ) here is a link to the map of the canal we usually start at Mile maker 12.


Have a Sparktacular Day

Go speed racer go !

    This reminded me of the song "Go Speed Racer Go" by Ali Dee and the Deekompressors! Just a fun song that gives a good pep talk emoticon

Keep Sparking!

    Iknow New Hope. We lived in New Jersey for about 5 years. Actually my son is out there now for some Folk Fest thing and visiting college frinds. We enjoyed the area around Philly very much. The Delaware Water Gap was beautiful!

As we have traveled down the road of life, the time I've been given to spend with my sister,
has meant more to me than mere words could ever express.
There never seems to be enough time, nor the right place,
to say all the heartfelt things you want your sister to know.
Sieze every moment, seek out every opportunity, for if you wait for that perfect moment,
you may one day find, it is too late...

    I did hug my sister today. Several times as a matter of fact. I love you, Lissa. I'm so sad for Christa and Ang. Dana was on my mind all day today. I told the girls if they needed a big sister they could borrow you, but they have to give you back.

Goals for August!

Wednesday, August 01, 2012

1) Increase my speed and distance walking from 18 minute miles to 17

2)incorporate kick boxing into my strength/cardio training 2 days a week

3) to lose 10lbs this month

4) Stay with in my Calories - I'm having a hard time with eating all my calories. I'm going to try to make some adjustments in WHAT I am eating. (smaller meals more often) We'll see how that works.

5) to ride with my spark sisters and be able to keep up HA HA ( they are monsters at bike riding)

Ok folks there it is. Wish me luck.

Now, get pedaling!
