I rode a bike and I liked it!
Today time was crunched. Dan was sweet and drove me the 1.5 into the city and waited for me so that I could take a 2 hour master class. Since we were already there I had packed my sneakers so we could go spend the rest of the day at a friends house nearby AND I could get my run in. I thought I’d tuck the boys into some boy-like conversation and then head out with my iPod blissfully drowning out the memories of sport talk. Buuuut when we got there and I realized my shoes smelled like ass thanks to my rainy day run on Monday and then Mark said I could hang with the cool kids and use the stationary bike…um YES! See, I secretly love hanging with these guys – they’re creative and funny and even change the channel when I complain about watching fishing. So I strapped in for a nice 60 minute bike ride – I started steady but kept changing up my speed and resistance. Now, I’m not a biker. I’ve been on a stationary bike maybe 10 times in my life and I’ve ridden a ”real” bike even less. I’ve always thought it would make my thighs massive. But I loved it. I sweat like a melting iceberg and enjoyed listening to the boys comment on my movie choice (has anyone seen Night Watch? I read the 3 book series and loved it. but the movie made me look a fool). I kind of missed my run and believe it or not I feel a little weird not doing any strength training at the moment, but I feel really good.
I see more biking in my future….
Tomorrow I’m dancing for 3 hours and then must still get my yoga on – it’s on the schedule!!! and a good weekend is in store – I can’t believe it’s nearly the weekend again. This week really passed me by!
