I am glad that I still go the gym but it's been tough lately. I feel like I can't get my schedule on track because now I have too many things to do and I still want to veg sometimes.
I got ready for the weekend by doing a WOD Friday morning:
Last night was a quick singlespeed girls ride through Crabtree, glad I was able to do it because it turned into a dreary, rainy cold Wednesday.
I did an extra WOD last night: I used the push mower to mow the front lawn which is fairly small. However the grass was high and I haven't used the mower in forever so it took me 90 minutes with water breaks! That was tough and made me feel unfit. Good thing is my back still feels great and I got in another real WOD this morning:
I have had constant back pain for over 2 years now, I figured it was just something I would have to live with because I herniated a disc. So I go see the chiropractor once in a while so it doesn't get too bad but this week when I tried a light Turkish getup and distinctly felt pain on my left side, I realized my spine was not aligned and that was what was causing the residual pain! So I told the chiropractor specifically what hurt, he did an adjustment and my back finally felt normal. The best thing was that it allowed me to bike 3 days in a row! With no back pain or soreness! We did Briar Chapel on Friday night, San lee on Saturday , and then 13.5 miles of 286 on Sunday. All on my singlespeed and all fun! I think we did 35 miles in total. I hope I can continue this way and work on keeping my back aligned properly. And riding the singlespeed was a different feeling than my normal squish bike.
Still been slacking but am hopeful my motivation is going up now that my back pain is subsiding. I went for a lunch time ride at Crabtree yesterday which was really nice! I only bumped into 3 other riders out there and we were all pleasant to each other, no one tried to run me over. And I got back to my Ultimate MtB workout and will do that again on Saturday.
