I'm back and feeling great!! I have basically been out of commission all summer due to a leg injury. My leg was hurting after IMWI because I had been on my feet for about 28 hours between the two days I volunteered and my injured leg was hurting again. My doc has told me that I can work out again, so that is what I did this morning. I went to the gym and took a 60 minute spinning class. It was great and I did a lot better than I thought I would. I have not been to a spinning class in FOREVER!! I wore my Ironman hat that I bought at IMWI and on the inside of the brim I wrote Ironman Wisconsin 2013 as a visual reminder and when it was tough today I just pictured myself out on the bike and it made it better. It was actually fun. Who would have thought that I would have put the words spinning and fun in the same sentence. :-)
Later while my son was at his 1/2 hour voice lesson I went for a walk. That felt great too.
I'm back baby and can't wait to hit the gym again tomorrow. I still struggle with some insecurities at the gym being the biggest one in most of the classes. I really need to work on getting over that and today was a big step in that realm.
November 8th I will be meeting with a Tri coach to set up a plan for my triathlons for the summer of 2009. I cannot wait.
Watch out world here I come!!
