Hey all, well first I am pumped up that I got a Nordic Track Ski Machine today, a stationary machine that simulates cross country skiing. I found one for just $12.50! I didn't have one here and I missed it!
Also, I ran this morning but I almost went to a running club this evening as well, in part to meet people in the running community around here. In Seattle it was like pulling teeth to get me to socialize due to the SAD! I'm so glad I'm going back to my normal self. I didn't get to go to the club as I was still running errands with my Mom. But regardless I clocked over 19,000 steps today!! WHOO HOOO!! (Insert the "Burn Baby Burn" from the "Disco Inferno" song here).
I've decided I am going to start doing Yoga on my recovery day (Monday) and maybe on my day off (Friday). I'm going to get a couple Yoga DVDs for runners. OK, OK, I know day off means no working out. I'll do the slow Hatha version then on the day off!
I've been doing the rowing machine to cross train, but frankly, it's very boring for me. I WANT TO KAYAK ON A LAKE. I visualize it but it's still not the same. I'm hoping rentals will start soon. I haven't bought a kayak of my own because I don't have a permanent house YET. But soon... I hope!!
It's also been warm enough to go lake swimming, but I think the water up here is too cold. I was shopping for a floatation belt for aqua jogging too, as I left mine in Seattle.
I also found a gym that has a rock climbing wall.
I've been wanting to take my Mom's Trek bike out but her bike has a small frame. Does anyone know if I raise the seat up if that will be sufficient? Or could I get some back/hip problems from doing that?? Both my bikes are in Seattle.
And I like the speed training I am doing with my running now, but miss running trails and hill running too. I want to see how to re-incorporate those without overtraining...???
All of this leaves the problem... I WANT TO PLAY SO MANY SPORTS BUT THERE'S JUST NOT ENOUGH TIME!!! LOLOLOL
Train on, people!!
