Meanwhile, I’ve been HUNGRY and eating more, so my weight has actually increased 3-4 pounds since early June. I think the workouts will get less intense and my appetite will slow down a little bit too. We’ll see. Maybe I need another Blog to Lose or Sisterhood of the Shrinking Pants challenge to push me over the plateau a bit.
Either way, I’ve really gotten stronger on the bicycle. Have been considering trying running again. Although I did a few miles in early July when my bike was in the shop, I started having tendon issues again, so I’m pretty tentative about doing the “pounding” that running provides on my ligiments, joints and tendons. No amount of stretching and hot/cold packs seems to stop it from happening.
The worst thing would be an injury that stops me from exercising 3-4 times a week like I have been all summer. Pretty soon I’ll be back inside doing treadmill things as the weather gets rainy/snowy/cold, but until then, I’m enjoying the outside activities.
