Starting out...

It's going to take some work, but I think I can, I know I can do this!!

I woke up today and I meditated, I woke up today meditated and did YOGA!!! Whooohooo!!!!

I am really loving Yoga with Adrienne its a nice relaxing way to start my yoga practice and get my butt in gear.

I then worked all day but knew I had a soccer game I had to go to that evening.  It was up on the North end of town and really not too far from my house so I decided to be extra healthy and bike there.

Now I used to love biking, I would bike everywhere as a kid.  It was great! And then I had kids and I am terrified of biking with a baby seat on the back and I've never had a bike trailer so for many years we did not bike.  About four years ago my husband bought me a bike for Mother's day, it's a fun cruiser bike and I love it!! I rode it all of four times, and I have not ridden in almost 3 years.

Things you forget when you haven't ridden a bike in FOREVER...... those muscles in the inside of the thighs those babies do not enjoy having to work after so long.  Oh and those core muscles that are hidden under the baby weight, yeah they are still there, but very unimpressed with you!! I didn't realize how active your core muscles are when you are biking, but all the balancing and stuff I mean yeah and the pedalling... pedalling, pedalling, pedalling... you know when your trainer makes you do those bicycle crunches, well they are called bicycle crunches for a reason!!

So in total I biked 5 km and played 45 minutes of soccer.  Needless to say I am exhausted and I can already feel the protest of muscles happening.  Epsom salt bath here I come!!!

Ok have a great night!! Let's hope I keep motivated like this, but maybe not this intensely!!

  1. That's awesome! Biking is really good for running recovery - it stretches your hips really well. I always go for one after my long runs!
