Sorry for not posting yesterday.
I was feeling very tired and lethargic yesterday. I had done some cleaning for about an hour, but none of it was strenuous. I didn't feel like it really "counted." Luckily, my husband needed to measure out a course for a 5K race we're helping with, so I walked with him and chalked it. It's a looped course, 3 loops around plus a little extra loop, so we ended up walking about 1.5 miles. I am sure it was at least 30 minutes of walking, bending, chalking. If not, I think I got enough activity between that and my housework to feel OK counting it as a 30 in 30 day.
Today I did Day 3 of Week 1 (I am stretching this program out a bit because I only ran 2 days last week) of the "Bridge to 10K Program." It was 40 minutes of running and about 15-20 minutes of walking. I was very tired after the last time I did this workout, but today I slowed down a lot and felt better. I also got some walking in when I visited a friend in Ann Arbor and went to lunch. With graduation weekend, I had to park pretty far from our meeting place.
Today I bought a new trisuit and got my new bike handlebars installed. I tried the bike out and talked to the bike shop person. He kept saying I would feel even better once I "built more flexibility." I finally said, "I think I'm pretty flexible, but my belly feels like it is getting in my way." He finally admitted that trimming down is part of what he meant, and that he has this problem too in the spring after a winter of not riding as much. He looked really sheepish when he said this -- but for some reason I found it kind of funny and not at all offensive, especially since he had tried so hard not to say it.
I'm really hoping that if I ride more, I will "build more flexibility." That kind of flexibility would also make me feel a little better in my trisuit, which is more flattering than the old one but would look better if I were a little more "flexible."
How are you all doing? Feeling flexible?
