It was a memorable 1.8-mile bike ride a little over a week ago.
I had really been on a roll with those elliptical workouts. Of course that's always when tragedy strikes. Too much shit going on. All these fucking kids. Summer vacation. You know the drill. I could do the whole self-deprecating #motherrunner thing. A little self-flagellation because I've missed some key workouts which will prevent me from fulfilling my #BIGDREAMS which I've #DARED2DREAM. Sadly, I've had to keep that #IRUNTHISBODY t-shirt in the drawer. Usually it's lack of interest, but my family's schedule and a medical procedure have been running my body this past week.
My plan was to jump on the bike and whizz around our neighborhood for 20-30 minutes. Get a rhythm, break a sweat...that sort of thing. As luck would have it, my kids were #soinspired by my enthusiasm that they wanted to join in.
Even the 4-year old.
|it's almost an #asspic of me.|
you can tell she's going to be cooperative.
The next day I had some treatment for my condition that has been preventing me from running and is just a real bitch to deal with in general. I kind of wish it were a stress fracture or ripped hamstring... something get-better-able and recover-from-able. Not only do you get to spend post after post analyzing WHY it happened, but injuries like that garner lots of sympathy and are accompanied by some good drama in addition to ultimately healing and allowing you to run again. You not only get to whine about the injury while it's hurting, but you get to whine about the boring fucking rehab AND then blog extensively about your #comebackjourney and maybe even apply for the #nuunHTC team.
Pretend I didn't say any of that. I don't want to fuck up my chances in the event I do get better.
Do you have a bike?
