Return To Road Work

It’s been two weeks since the Boilermaker road race and I needed to give my legs a long rest. 

Running is arguably the best cardiovascular exercise.  However, it’s so high impact that it tears your body up.  And the bigger you are the higher the impact.  

So in the meantime, I indulged in a modest splurge, and bought a bike.   I haven’t rode a bike in almost 15 years so I was a little rusty but it was a great way to stay active.   Cycling is such a low impact sport that injury rarely occurred.

Today, I took a nice jog and it felt amazing.  I’m looking forward to cross training on the bike while I recover between runs.

I was near the end of 2017 when I realized that my life was totally out of balance. I was 30 and I was working my life away. I did not have strong relationships with my wife, family, or friends. It was around this time that I came across THE HAPPINESS PROJECT by Gretchen Rubin. It was then that I decided to launch my own year long project towards personal happiness for the entire year of 2017.
