This is what I call talent.
Throughout my life I have eaten more pears than you can believe. This morning’s pear was perfection. Each bite I took ended with, ‘holy cow that is good.’ This is where the talent comes in. I am able to get every last piece of flesh off the core to be enjoyed in my belly. It takes a lot of dedication to eat every last bite but it is so worth it. Thank you, hopefully this talent will translate into getting my gimp leg across Boston’s finish line come April 18th.
My workout this morning was one hour on the gym bike (ya know the clunky bike’s……500 Day’s of Summer was on and I just had to watch it). About 20 minutes into the workout I felt like I was getting a lamesauce workout and was tempted to turn up the level until I remembered I am not supposed to.
So, how did I end up leaving the gym looking like a wet dog without disobeying doc’s orders…….
I added weights. I grabbed the 12 lbs. and every other minute I would do arm work (think bicep curls, triceps extensions, overhead shoulder press etc) while sitting up straight on the saddle and pedaling at the same time. Dangerous to the bikers next to me….probably, but who cares when I got to be reunited with the same sweaty disaster of a person I am after a long hard run!
People were looking at me funny but they won’t think its so strange when I get my sub 3 marathon and return from my injury like a champ.
I don’t know if you remember my mental health post from a few weeks ago……click here to read. Taking time for my mental health is something that I am trying to do every day even though life is incredibly busy right now.
At a time in the morning that I am usually busy putting on make-up, emailing, stalking, or looking up funny jokes online…….I have decided that it is time for me to completely be by myself (oh and my pb jar, but that doesn’t count). I am loving taking 10 minutes to just sit and think without any distractions besides trying to fit my whole fist into the jar. Try it and you will love it.
Off to go meet the SISSY at the gym to ride the bike together and swim!!! Then we are heading over to the PT office together……she is having knee issues that need to be fixed ASAP in order to get out racing again:)
What are you doing tonight?!?!
-I asked Billy out on a date:)
Do you cut up your fruit or eat it straight up?
-Too much work to cut it and I want it NOW, not after I dice it.
Do you multi-task at the gym.
-I loved my biking and arms routine this morning!
Do you spend time everyday disconnected from everything ?!?!
-It has just been a few weeks but I am LOVING it.
