Rowing is where it’s at! I totally forgot about rowing
machines. I can never go on them for too long because they make my back muscles
go crazy because they are actually being used for a change! But last night I
did a solid 15 minutes on a rower and it was pretty good. My back feels like
someone round house kicked me yesterday but that is exactly what I was wanting,
to feel like I am making real progress on strengthening my back. I love the
fact that it is a cardio workout as well. That was my main draw to it
yesterday. I wanted to get 30 minutes of cardio in and after 17 minutes on the
StairMaster I ventured over to the rower to work a bit more on my back. I think
I figured out that I just need to go nice and slow with a consistent rhythm on
the rower and I can go for quite a while. Usually I try to go pretty hard and
want to give up after a few minutes. But Last night I felt like I could keep on
going last night for quite a while. A little known fact about me, I LOVE the StairMaster…
That's right, I said it. And you know it's true. Today I thought I'd share with you a few memes that make me laugh. This one is huge for me! Every time I see someone actively working out at the gym that is over weight I want to go up and give them a high five and say they are awesome. Enough said! How I feel after long runs. Yeeps! The best one yet! To have the enthusiasm of this girl! I hope you all enjoyed and at least giggled once or twice, yes, giggled! Keep on running!
When the bar offers $4 shots to accompany your hard cider, of course, you must say yes to a Fireball shot to make Angry Balls! Never pass that up, it’s an apple pie in a glass. A highly enjoyable beverage to partake in as I await for my next flight to depart.
Running along the Napa River as the sun was just beginning to reach over the Vaca Mountains is how I chose to wrap up a short but long work trip, it was exactly what I needed. The air was slightly chilled with a low fog hanging over the river. The perfect running temperature which made me feels as if I could just keep going forever. I am finding my feet once again in the thralls of a seemingly chaotic time in my work/life balance right now. I am very proud of my first training workout during a work trip. I was concerned that I wouldn’t find time to dedicate to a run while traveling, it was a short run but a run none-the-less.
In the coming month, I will be on the road more than ever between work and personal time with my train…
