Spring Fever

Tuesday, March 12, 2013

I have such spring fever! I am still unable to run, but the desire to get out there is so strong! I have in turn starting looking for a bicycle. I think I'll like it. My only concerns about biking is getting one the right size for me (I'm 5'10). I looked at a used one, its a hybrid, looks a little too girlie for me, alot like a cruiser. Its a Diamondback 2009 vital 2 Devine. We'll see, I"m not in love the "look" of it, but budget constraints right now are giving me reasons to consider it. Maybe its really super comfy to ride...maybe I won't want to ride for sport once I can run...maybe I will just cruise around with kids on it...maybe having it is better than having is nice...maybe I wont look ridiculous on it...who knows...time will tell. What I do know is that I am itching to get some sunshine and just feel the wind in my hair and the sun on my face! I want to sweat, to work hard, outside. I just feel so alive when I run, close to God and free.

Back to being grateful for what I have, instead of longing for what is just out of reach....
I did wake up early and get a workout in, feels great to move this body!
I have a delicious green "Elvis" shake I'm drinking, its very yum.
Teecino is brewed and waiting on me to warm up with a cup.
Kids are still in blissful sleep.
My best friend is calling!
I have amazing support here on Sparkpeople! Thanks all, you are a big blessing to me!

    I'm right there with you on the spring fever! I can't wait to get outside for a run! So far, it hasn't worked out with my schedule. If only the sun would rise a little earlier so I could go out before everyone wakes up! It's coming! Hope you're recovery is going well and that you can get out and get some sunshine soon!

    I'm SO ready for Spring as well! I live in the top of Texas, so you'd figure its close. We have had a few ok days this week though. I even got out and ran one of those days. Life is good, but life with some nice sunshine and the wind through our hair is even better emoticon

    Hm, Elvis shakes... I make my smoothies with almond or peanut butter and bananas--is that the same thing? That combo is my favorite.
