I will cross train. I will cross train. I will. cross. train.
This morning was pretty typical. I woke up, somehow mixed up my contact lenses and put the wrong ones in each eye. Then I shook up the container of almond milk, which wasn't closed all the way so it went all over the place (I've done this several times in my life). But then my Mom, who is visiting us after retiring from her job last week, put on my glasses by mistake. She thought she had a stroke, and said "I knew this would happen as soon as I retired!!!"
I'm being good. No running. I took the advice of you triathletes out there, and went for a bike ride this morning. The sun is out after days of rain and it took all I had in me to get on the bike instead of going for a run. I rode for about 40 minutes, and I took it easy, just rolled along, do-di-do.....I felt like I was in a Country Time Lemonade commercial.
I really am going to try and be good and let hammy heal, and suck it up and cross train. I don't know why I have such a hard time with it, back in the days that I belonged to the gym, I would finish my cardio, walk over to the weights, and then keep walking. I don't think I have it in me to sit there and do exercises, I want to just run around and get in a good sweat.
At least the weather is starting to cooperate, fall has really kicked in, and I want to take advantage of our weekends while it's nice out. I asked Mike what we were doing this weekend, and he pointed to the pile of wood in our driveway and said, "Stacking that!" Well, I guess I can count that as cross training.
Last weekend was fun, I went on a wine tour of Seneca Lake, in the Finger Lakes, with my mother in law, her sisters, and my sisters in law. It was a great day for it, my favorite vineyard of the six we visited was Four Chimneys, an organic vineyard that had a yummy Chardonnay. The Finger Lakes are known for it's Riesling, which I'm not a huge fan of, I wish I had bought more than one bottle of the Chard.
Here I am with my sisters in law, note that for once Jeannine and I are not in running skirts.
Don't forget my CEP Compression sock giveaway, which ends Sunday....you can find it HERE!
