First day of Spring
Bike weather is approaching so Paul installed the computer ( I really want to know how far I actually pedal...my speed might be so slow it won't register ) he gave me for Christmas and it didn't work, so a trip to the outdoor equipment store was necessary Turned out to be a faulty battery.
While that was being sorted I wandered around and found the panniers I first saw out west and decided would be perfect for my library runs. They come as a pair so I can carry lots of books. After much deliberation I decided on the blue rather than the red for my silver and black bike.
Now we just need the spring like weather back so I can use them.
Last night was my first hoop class. These are not the hula hoops of my youth. They come in different weights and different sizes and you are expected to do things other than have them go round and round your waist.
You are expected to spin them clockwise and counter clockwise, get them down and spinning around your bum, do the limbo AND walk and talk without having them fall at your feet.
I sweat as much if not more than at a full out cardio class.
I laughed a lot more.
I failed at most of the exercises.
I have bruises. I have sore spots.
I have to decide if my body will survive another class.
I will look like the photo in 8 weeks, I will, I will, I will. ha
