Sooo many sports, too little time... LOL

Thursday, May 02, 2013

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...???


Train on, people!!

    I regularly tell my dance teacher that I need to win the lottery so I can have time (and funds) for all of my hobbies! Right now I'm in negotiations with myself and the Boy about whether or not we're going to accept an invitation to be a part of an Ultimate team, or if I need to scale back my hobbies to make more time for other things.

    I used to schedule my recovery days so I could do yoga or a gentle Pilates class. Loved it. Always felt Yummy afterwards. Do not fear!

    Hmmm, maybe the sun is a little too much for you! emoticon LOL But the more you post, the more it looks like you are going to stay---guess you need to go back to Seattle and get your stuff.

    emoticon Love it don't you! I ran out of daylight so continued under the lights, got in 17950 steps walking. I am too old for running except to avoid cars! How do you keep up with all that activity? It wore me out trying to keep track on all that you are accomplishing ~ amazing! Keep enjoying the sunshine, you are prospering under it!

    Wow! You have so many things you want to do know. I have always wanted to go kayaking, one of these days.
Love riding my bike, I think if you are able to raise the seat high enough to be comfortable you should be ok.
Try and have a relaxing evening. emoticon
