So the last time I blogged it was pretty Debbie-Downer. Today is better. I still haven't been back to the gym/boot camp in a while, but I think today makes up for it and will hopefully keep things jump started.
Today I biked to The Color Run (1.5 miles), walked around a bit, completed The Color Run 5k without really stopping! (3.1 miles), biked home (1.5 miles, approximately), drove to Roller Girls outdoor skate, and skated nearly 8 miles. Woo hoo! And, I really pushed myself and booked it most of the outdoor skate - I finished first, really pushing each stride to feel the power through my thighs, and even beat our fastest jammer. Granted - it wasn't a race - if it were it'd be different - but the point is I didn't phone it in or give up. I skated to the front and stayed in my zone of focusing on each stride and keeping an even pace - just for me. It just so happened on this day that consistently pushed me pretty far up.
So I'm feeling pretty BA.
I'm also on day 6 of biking and day 21 of no alcohol. I've avoided a lot of temptation, including the previously mentioned thank you gift of alcohol (mead) and having a derby League meeting get moved to a bar.
Today, I really love my body. I love and appreciate my legs. They are gorgeous to me and today they pushed me with their great power through 14 miles of awesomeness.
