Lisa’s Journey, Week 42: The Big Picture/s = (Less Writing)

I’m using my first blog’s cover image, as it seemed fitting again. It’s bitter sweet. On one hand, huge congratulations to the Kaikoura Coastal Sports Team who won GodZone for the Prime section. Outstanding effort guys! It was fun to follow you along on your journey! And then on the flip side, my thoughts go out to those who lost family members and friends in Christchurch. What a hideous end to the week. Another senselessness act that affects so many innocent people. xx

My week got off to a great start however. The Hubby surprised me by arriving home late one night from work. My Dad’s heart op was a success and he is doing well. My eldest sister is home and I proudly ticked off all my scheduled workouts and have a full green ‘TP’ (Training Peaks) wheel (image for proof) for the first time in a long time!!!

I had a long ride on Saturday. It felt good to get out for a while and clear my head. Everything was feeling a little negative and foggy after hearing all the grim news reports of the previous day. I biked all over the place to clock up my time and it was just what I needed!

I went for a bike with a friend of a friend early Sunday morning. We did the bike track, but in reverse of what I’ve been usually doing. It felt really weird at first. I did have to laugh when he said he was copping all the webs I was riding through. I said ‘as long as you’ve got the spider too, thats okay with me!’ I didn’t manage anything in the vicinity of being ‘inzone’ (sorry Ray), but I did enjoy myself!!

Sunday arvo was a quick trip to Christchurch, which left me feeling zapped. I put it down to the couple of bigger bikes and driving etc, but on Monday I did not feel 100% so I called it quits at lunchtime as I was not winning. I came home and went straight to sleep. Something may be brewing. The diffusers are all on and hopefully any bugs are vacating the premises!

This week I got a new workout by the name of ‘Haddi’s Russian Step’. Anyone know if I can program these workouts into a ‘Garmin Vivoactive3? Theres a lot of different times to try remember 🙂

Kind words are short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truely endless…
