Another tough workout. The pushups were so hard. I had to make them all incline pushups since they were the 3rd in a giant set. I normally do straight up pushups, so that gives me some work to do. Anyway, the shapeover is all finished. I’ll talk a bit more about the wrap up of this program on Monday and my thoughts on it.
John and I went out for lunch and then some bowling! That was one of my goals this month. I realize that we had not been bowling at least since I hurt my back - and that was almost 2 years ago. Eeek!
We do own our own shoes and balls. Mine is the pink one.
My bowling form really is horrible. I know it, but whatever
John’s is good.
First game. Me, not so great. John had one of his best games. Go figure!
Second game – I did much better. Check out the strikes!
At least I was consistent: Strike/whiff/strike/whiff. My arm was tired after 2 games.
Saturday was kind of cold in the 30s, but Sunday warmed up to about 55 degrees. If it is over 50, I am on the bike! A full month earlier than last year. I got to wear my new YMX Yellowman long sleeve jersey that I won from Shelley a few months ago:
Love!!! I need to get a better pic of this. It’s actually quite … ahem … figure enhancing.
First ride of the season!
Happy, happy, joy, joy!! We took the long way to downtown GF, swinging by my parents’ house to say hi to my dad on our way by. Destination? Chocolate Mill for some coffee!
7 miles there. My legs felt great! Even on the small hills. All that leg work I have done the last month really helped. The wind was pretty stiff on the way home, though. I will say that. The last 3 miles were tough. I was just so happy to be on the bike again! It felt awesome! Yeah, I can ride the bike on the trainer, but there is just nothing like being on it outside.
Bike computer set to zero and ready to go for the 2012. First ride: 15 miles!
Yay! Can you tell I am happy? The weather looks good this week to sneak in some more rides, hopefully. Got build up for the 40 mile cuppicake rides.
