Cross-Training: It’s good for you!

So I’ve been off the road and on the trainer most of December and thus far in January. We’re having very rideable weather, despite the fog, this month, and I’ve made some anti-bike choices: Walking the dogs, riding the trainer, 1 min. plank, etc. I’m not proud of those choices except that the dogs get the outing the need, love and deserve. Last week we hit the local dog park and they had a blast.

When I put myself in their paw-protectors (which we don’t own or use) I know how I’d feel with a few back-yard outings and being confined to the house for hours on end. So every chance I get I walk them.  If I have time I ride my bike or get on the trainer; some days my time is so tight that the trainer is the variable.

Frankly, I’m tired of putting me last. 11 years ago I was at a similar spot and jumped on Team Me. The time is right to do so again. Thus the Thursday Tower Hikes and nearly-daily dog walks.

Now to find time to run…
