Wow, a post without a photo. How can that be?? I am chagrined.
Another annoyingly cold and blizzardy week in NYC (19 inches yesterday) so still no riding since my return from NZ. So I'm resorting to desperate measures: Went to the gym last night for the first time in a year and did three miles on the treadmill. Then did a personal training session this morning, also for the first time in a year.
Tomorrow I'm pledging to try Bikram yoga, for the first time ever. We shall see.
I'm getting a small head start on February, which I've proclaimed to be Get Paula In Shape Month. Ideally this would have just flowed naturally from the Backroads trip, but as mentioned the snow thing has pretty much gotten in the way, as did the fantastic visit from my old friends Sharon and Ann last week for the Lyle Lovett/John Hiatt concert. (NZ wine was consumed.)
But I wish to be in much better shape when the NYCC's SIG season begins in early March. And I'm tired of sitting on my butt. I just hope I can keep running without acquiring another injury. As for the rest of the gym thing, my core clearly (and I mean clearly) is in need of help so I am committed to this. I also see it as paying the price for my mortifying Bungee Fail in Queenstown. Enough said.
