One Step Back, TWO Steps Forward!
Monday, July 14, 2008
I had been down on myself for having broken a 13 day cardio streak yesterday...could come up with lots of excuses, but I truly COULD have done my cardio if I had pushed myself. Earlier on, I had hoped to go biking instead of using the treadmill, then Mother Nature kicked in with stormy weather and by then it just seemed like somebody pulled the plug from me... Next time I'll know to just get it done, out of the way, and THEN if I can bike TOO, it'll be all that much better a day!
BUT am back in the saddle again today, up and at 'em, treadmill done first thing this morning!
Then after work I had the pleasure of taking the car in to have a new headlight replaced...woo hoo!
So what, you ask? Cuz our local walking / biking trail is just on the other side of the shopping plaza where I left the car so I could work in an extra hour of walking while they worked on the car! :-)
PLUS, I figured out what I needed to do in order to get my bicycle to fit into the extended trunk of my Ford Taurus: have to lower the bicycle seat. A bit of an irritation to have to do this and keep the pliers in the car, but I think the convenience of having my bike handy for those moments when I'm inspired either on lunch break or after work will be well worth it!
It's important to me to make it HIGHLY convenient to fall into workout opportunities...so we'll see how well this pays off! I'm enjoying biking SO much more this year...looking forward to having an alternative cardio outlet!
