Backache

So, I am old and have worked out pretty hard this week, after just getting back to the gym. Now I'm paying for it. I haven't had back problems before, but it's been hurting a few days, and last night it started spasming (sp?). I wish I knew what caused it. My theories: 1) bad setup on the spin bike Monday, the seat sloped down, followed by a hard spin class Wednesday or
2) possibly swimming, I got two swims in this week and I'm a left sided breather, maybe....since the pain is mostly on the left. I tried to run last night and couldn't, I also had two good runs this week but running doesn't usually bother my back. Regardless, I'm taking today off to go to Orange County equipment shopping with Craig, followed by Christmas shopping and hoping the back will feel good enough tomorrow for a longish ride (or even a short one!)

Step 2 Training Plan

So tomorrow will make a whole week since my last diet Coke, no more headaches, and I'm not missing it (so much). So now it's time to move on to step 2 in my training plan. Lose 10 lbs. Better yet is the fact that this is Holiday time so if I can manage to get this done before the new year I won't have to lose even more for the Holiday indulgences.
10 lbs before Jan. 1
114

Amazing!

Last night Craig called me while we were doing our joint YM/YW Christmas carolling activity and said, "Check your e-mail." Checked my email and it wouldn't open, I had to wait till I got home.
It seems Santa's elves have decided to give me a little preview of my Christmas present!
I can't believe it, a Felt B2R
I feel like I've just got a Ferrari and have no clue how to drive it. I've always ridden my road bike in tri's, seriously, I don't even know how to shift it. There will be some learning curve here, but can't wait to start learning! Kyle says it's name is Bruno. Come on Bruno we've got a big date ahead of us. (Aren't those the cutest elves you've ever seen!)
