Four miles on the elliptical on Monday. I would spell this workout B-O-R-I-N-G. I needed to keep the course flat or it definitely hurt my heel. My overall effort could have been much better but see the previous sentence. I am making real progress and don't want to wreck it.
14+ miles on the bikepath on Tuesday following my PT appt. It is a flat path but it was exceedingly windy and I did feel like I got a very decent workout. I always love the bike path so life was good. My husband was using my camera so no pics which was fine on the bike path but later I was dying to have it. (Why you may ask? To be answered below!)
Four miles on the elliptical again today and I must say they were much better! Maybe I am getting my elliptical groove back. I had thought about biking but it was pouring and cold. I can run in that but I guess I'm not up for biking in the same weather. So .....to the gym which I have been paying for all summer and not using so there is a plus side!
2. Tuesday while I was on the bike path it was also raining at times, sometimes hard. As I was driving home I was driving in and out of rain. The sky behind me was sunny and the sky in front of me was very dark! I looked for the rainbow and oh yes there it was. I like rainbows as much as any little girl hooked on Wizard of Oz. The entire way home I was looking at a rainbow but... that isn't all. It would fade and then show up again. Well, I hadn't seen it for awhile and when I came around a curve I made a loud gasp! It was startlingly beautiful and vivid. Unbelievable. Man I wished I had my camera then. I couldn't believe how vivid it was. Plus I could see the end of the rainbow! Even as it left the sky and fell across the trees the colors were clear and bright. If only I had gotten to the end and found the gold! I did call a friend to tell her to go out and look. Her husband - coming from a completely different direction - had just called to tell here exactly the same thing! But - no pictures! It did certainly make my ride home a treat.
3. Okay I've got to go do something. OUCH! That hurt. I just removed my "upcoming" marathon from my sidebar and have no - yes no - upcoming races. THAT.DOES.HURT!
***But a totally awesome bike ride on Saturday! I'll fill you in after! And I'm off to do the exercises my PT gave me so that running will happen sooner rather than later in my future!***
No rainbow pictures so this sunflower will have to do!
