Wednesday- 17 mile bike (1:07), plank a day (1min, 4sec)
I had some things on my mind this morning and even though I knew I wasn't going to have a lot of time to workout, I knew I had to fit it in. I needed to get outside, break a sweat and hash some things out in my head.
That got me thinking. Scary, I know. Stay with me.
How did I get to this place? The place where a morning ride or run was just what I needed to clear my head or find my happy.
When did I get past the "OH MY GOSH, I'm dying, make it stop!" part?
I don't really know. Is that weird?
It seems like I should have had a moment. An aha! moment,
or a light bulb going off or something.....
So, I don't know when it happened but I'm glad it did. I'm grateful that I found a way to clear my head, let off some steam and find some peace.
It's takes time and consistency to get past the running/biking sucks....every...stinkin...time...phase but good golly it is worth it.
So I guess the whole point of this is.... if you are in the OMGoodness this sucks stage, keep going.
It gets better. Promise.
Phew, deep thoughts this morning on the bike and this was after I solved all the things that were buggin me.
Can you imagine if I would have had time for a long ride?
Probably world peace.
Disclaimer: this does not mean that you won't have some this sucks, let me take a bad selfie to prove it type days, you will. You need to, but that's a whole nother post.
Can we talk about this jersey a minute?
Of course we can.
Remember when I did the Esprit de She and they gave us those nifty jerseys instead of a race shirt? Well, they also gave us a discount to buy one. Discount=free in my book. Todd hates when I do math.
Anyway, I was pretty sure I needed one with stripes. Cause.... who doesn't.
I love what Moxie Cycling is doing for women's jerseys.
Can I get an Amen!! SO cute.
Legit pockets, built in support.
I also saw a lady wearing her Moxie jersey during the trail run last weekend. Hellooo. Pockets! Smart lady. She was probably carrying an oxygen tank in there. ;-)
The only draw back is, I feel it's a little too tight on the neck. It needs to be cut a bit lower back there or something. I hope it will loosen up a bit with more use. Which means I should probably ride my bike more, which will probably end in world peace.
Win and Win!
|Please tell me that's the jersey hanging low!|
Abs! Are you in there?
Buuuuut if I keep it up I am sure......
World peace. *insert angels singing
I've been inspired by all the Instagram peeps who plank for 234 minutes a day.
And instead of whining about my weak core I'm gonna plank about it.
Let's see how I do.
Wanna join me? Misery loves company!
Come on lets get our plank on.
