You know I love the effects of my exercising – and I suggest that we all need more exercise…
Well – like most people, when I get busy, “official” exercising is the first thing I start skipping.
So – when September rolled around and I got busy – I stopped going to my cycling classes. I did do that long kayak trip I wrote about and still did yoga at home – and of course went up and down the ramp several times a day and my dog got extra long walks….but my aerobic conditioning took a back seat.
In October I had a long talk with me and forced myself to start back to the cycling classes. Much to my own amazement and joy – I kept up as much as I usually did – which is not ever 100% as I have 30-40 years on most in the class including the instructor : – ).
I’m not sure it was a good thing for me to learn that I could take off a month with few repercussions – so I have promised myself I won’t do that again. It’s too chancy. Besides ski season is approaching and the legs and heart need to be in great shape for Mt. Hood.
