|My 'office' more than I should admit this week.|
Not sure if it's just me, but I'm always comparing my physical condition to the past, and always thinking I was WAY faster/fitter/skinnier whatever last year. When I stop and think about it, I know this completely unnecessary stress, but it is interesting that I was working full time last year at this time, and training, and commuting by bike... have I gotten soft?!?
So anyway, this week has been a lot of working from bed, some good and some bad bike workouts, a little yoga (maybe poorly timed hot yoga on the day I was starting to feel sick), some subbing, and taxes.
I finally learned to bring a full sized towel to hot yoga! Then when I sweat a lake onto my mat I can still grip it, and not slip and fall constantly!
I subbed a 4th grade class where the kids were so convinced I should be their 5th grade teacher that they wrote a script for my interview with the school. I don't think I'm cut out to be a 4th grade teacher, but it's fun to play elementry school every once in a while! These kids were wicked smart in math, AND I got to read 'Bridge to Terabithia' out loud to them... best sub job ever :)
When I was sick in bed I read a lot of Mountain Bike Action, and laughed out loud when I came to this page... oh mtb lingo, you are too funny!
And how can you be too bummed by a bad workout when Blackstar Canyon stays green and fluffy all the way through March!?? It was super pretty out, so I tried to focus on the beauty of the canyon and not the pathetic lack of power in my legs!
This weekend is the last non-race weekend in a long time, so I'm planning on doing some bigger rides, working on the deck and hanging with the hubs as much as possible. The party really starts at Fontana in a week... then it's going to be a real whirlwind!
