Saturday Morning

Husband and I cycle commuted to the fitness center at work this morning.

The trip up the hill reminded me of one more thing that I wanted to mention. I have a triple up front, but lately I haven't been using the small ring when going up the hills. What does this mean?

I started off with did 2 miles on the ellliptical. It's a decent workout and I like it more than the treadmill, but would rather be running (outside of course).

I thought about my running group who had 12miles on the schedule today. I wonder if they thought about me. I also wonder how I'm going to join back in after all this time off. I guess I'll worry about that when I'm able to join back in..

I went through my upper body strength work again. No push-ups though. He did all strength work. Then we cycled back home.

It's awesome that Husband & I were able to spend Saturday morning together like this. I hope we can do this kind of this together for a long time. It was fun.

  2. Hey - I saw you!! Our group was stopped cuz someone had a flat. I thought it was you but wasn't sure, and then I recognized hubby behind you. I yelled out his name and think I startled him like a stalker :D

  6. You're getting strong, not even in the small chain ring! I am thinking about my running group this morning too, they are just about to go out for 13 before the 1/2 marathon taper starts. It makes me sad and wondering if I'll be back with them too and if my body will take it... but we've got to hang in there - it'll happen.

  12. I love hitting the gym with my husband too. Something about getting healthy together that just feels so "right". You're too tough for that third ring!!

  15. You've encouraged me to restart push-ups, doing 3 sets with good form. Also, I'm interested in the results of your EPO experiment since I also have contact dermatitis and my baby has eczema...which I'm hoping will go away by age 1 but he's probably genetically predisposed otherwise!
