changing it up
Sunday, August 11, 2013
Riding my bicycle isn't enough. My course right now is all flat, and the only challenge is some wind when I turn up the airport road.
A friend suggested that I buy a mini-trampoline, especially for nights I'm on call (or weekends) and am stuck at home. I did buy one, and have used it nearly every night since! In two weeks I've missed 3 workouts. I jog in place, and put on netflix or a series of 80's dance videos on youtube, and just go for it.
A milestone: Last week I was able to clip the waist clip on my lead apron skirt, first time since I've been using it. It's the largest skirt we have, and the only one that goes around my belly, so this is truly a major milestone. And... I could still breathe normally after clipping the waist clip!
I know I'm on the right track to fitness. Using the mini-trampoline has made a huge difference for me, and it won't be long before I'm actually jogging outside on the road.
The Redrun is October 12 and I need to be able to run for 6 miles. It won't be a straight up run, because there are obstacles to overcome, and the route is neither level nor safe. Plus, there will be zombies to dodge. I may not need to maintain a 6 mile constant run but I will be physically challenged no matter what. Looking forward to it!
