Working out lately...

... has been rough. I'm on a lot of drugs and a lot of things still hurt, but I'm getting squishy, I'm getting antsy, and I don't want to get too far behind (I still have aspirations for races and rides next summer, not to mention ski season coming up), and I just plain miss exercising. So I try to do at least a little.

That means I run. And by run I mean slowly jog slash sometime walk for like 1 - 2 miles. Sad. But it's slowly getting better.

That means I lift. And by lift I mean do a few chest, bicep, and leg exercises (everything else hurts too much) with really light weights. But at least it's something.

That means I climb. And by climb I mean do a few, short top-rope routes and ask someone else to do all the belaying so I don't have to look up for long periods of time.

This means I think about yoga. But don't actually attempt it because ouch.

But I'm trying. Even when I can only manage a few minutes, I figure it'll add up eventually. And it's keeping me sane - I'm sleeping better, I'm feeling better, and I'm still getting to wear workout clothes :)

this is my life

It's Been a While....

Okayyyyy so it's been a long time. Here's what's been up:

Got in a car wreck. No bueno. I was driving on the freeway, it was raining, some guy hit me from behind, I spun and smashed into the center divide wall almost head-on. I was okay, but I'm still dealing with back and neck issues almost two months later. That means I didn't get to do my triathlon, the Dirty Dash, or my century.... among other things. Sooo that's lame.

On the plus side, I did get a new car out of it.

We also had been planning our Peru trip for months, so we went through with it, despite my limitations. While there were some things I had to miss out on, we still had an AMAZING time (we also have 50 billion pictures to go through, so more on that some other day).

(hiking the Inca Trail, Machu Picchu, eating guinea pig, taking lots of steps and climbing lots of stairs)

Since the trip, recovering, going to Moab, and going blonder!

Do you feel like you're so up-to-date now??? :)
