yes, Olya, there's something magical about a star filled night. I live in a big city usually where our light pollution snuffs many out, but I still relish their twinkle. For some reason I've never fully understood I really seem to like Orion.
Hope you're feeling better, Sita, with your recent days of rest.
Back safely in the Big Apple, Luv? Those kicks are kool. No problems with ventilation there! Can you wear them comfortably bear? What's the drop from heel to toe?
Martial arts, running, sprinting, weights including Sumo Deadlifts about 190 for 7 reps and Power Cleans 100 for 7. Another fun weight move could be called Landmine Twists, where I stick a bar in a corner at an angle, hold it with hands together right below the collar, and turn from side to side using only the core to lift and turn the bar. Add weights to the upper bar end, which usually weighs 45# on it's own, as needed.
-Close Pushup 2/13,13
-1/2 pullups 2/10, 10
-Ground Assisted 1 Leg SQ 1/10,14; 2/10,11
-Hanging Bent Knee Raise 2/15, 15 (repeated, so moving on)
-1/2 HSPU (off about a 6.5 inch riser--full will be 5.5 in.) 2/14,12
-Head Bridge 2/20, 20 (after suffering with the angled ones for so long, I was scared that these would be even tougher; but they're actually significantly easier I found)
Hi Everyone! ;D) hello!
Hope all is well on this glorious day! In NYC it's rainy-sunny.
Back safely in the Big Apple, Luv?
Yep. :) Back at home. Glad to be back.
Busy day today. Tonight I am going to go & help rescue a bird at 11pm (after the store closes).
You can read more about it here.
Check out the comments at the end of the blog post.
Can you wear them comfortably bear?
I haven't ordered them, but I hope so. If not, I'll wear 'em with my toe socks. ;)
What's the drop from heel to toe?
It should be pretty flat. They are called "barefoot ultra pure running" shoes.
This is how the store labels them:
Beautiful and true "Sunday" thoughts, Luv. That's one of the things I admire most about you, that you live so intuitively and are always open to the next challenge or opportunity, even if you're comfortable where you are.
Good luck with your feathered friend liberation mission!
Interesting observation. It general I would say that it is true. I've lived a very eclectic life. I feel like I am a new person with new interests every 5 years or so. Not because I lose interest per se, but because new things come my way & I have to roll with it! ;D)
Pretty far up in the peleton, working from time to time.
I got 10;th.
If I wanna better than 10;th I should probably not work so hard in the front, and save myself to the ending, but that's boring, especially cuz this is more like a "training".
I'm gonna try some new stuff next race, maybe try if im a OK sprinter (i dont think so :-D)
Or save some power and attack the last 2-3km;s.
So many options, so exciting... Cycling is just something else!
Have a great weekend
As I was walking home I was thinking about this exercise thread. I was thinking, "I wonder how everyone is doing? If Fredric is on the bike, if Sita is doing yoga, etc."
Then, I got home & turned on the computer & there you are!
Congrats on all of the good cycling news you are creating.
Keep us posted on the attacks & sprints. It sounds exciting!
Thanks Aimée, focus on work has delayed until today; my son had to prepare a presentation so needed all the space in the house for his project and objects. It was fun though, could help him with some of it :) He will be moving out again this summer as soon as he found a house, so all will be different from then on. Will be reorganizing and decluttering again. I will follow your list from your Sunday blogpost!!! Loved it, very helpful for me!
And thanks WL, thinking of you regularly :) My health is getting better again with rest and also now that I apply some Chinese medical views. I hope to fortify my Spleen by warming foods. (banana island didn't help unfortunately)
Kept working out in the mornings:
50 min Joyous Unfolding and Rejuvenation yoga class, which I thought was a bit too easy for intermediate, but yet it was intense with the focus on breath and movement.
35 min brisk walking
18 min Daily Maintenance Yoga Practice
4km brisk walking/running
25 min Short Power Flow yoga class
55 min 3-week Toning Challenge Pranavayu yoga class (just for today)
a 5km forest walk in the afternoon, easy, on flipflops :) no ear phones, just listening to what the birds and the trees had to tell.
Today very light exercises:
21 min Yoga Siesta for the spine
10 min meridian qigong
The weather was perfect last week, now it is cooler and no blue skies, some rain is expected, but that's also nice.
Have a great week everyone! Love to all of you :)
(*laughing*)-->" I will follow your list from your Sunday blog post!"
That is great! I love to hear that. :D) It makes me feel like I am not alone. And that others think about these things too.
Oooooo-->"a 5km forest walk in the afternoon, easy, on flipflops :) no ear phones, just listening to what the birds and the trees had to tell."
That sounds so good!
Hello Brilliant Beings!
Today I am a sweaty mess. Yesterday I was too. It's been hot & humid in NYC. It feels like it happened overnight! I'm trying to drink more water. I really feel like I need it.
Today is laundry at a local laundromat. After that I'll be back home, scrubbing mildew off of the bathroom ceiling, and doing other house cleaning activities that will take some sweat & elbow grease. This will be my exercise for today.
Good luck with the mildew! Somebody said somewhere that vodka is great for that :)
Ah! Good tip.
I was using rubbing alcohol yesterday. It worked pretty good.
Next time I will use vodka!
