Sensory Strides #37 shoulder injury, rain
Sensory Strides podcast
Quote “Pain is your motivation to learn healthy alignment, better technique, and more efficient movement patterns.”  Kino MacGregor Welcome to the Sensory Strides podcast.  Observations of the world through activity, reading, listening, and everything else. So, I’ve gotten an injury.  Luckily, although painful, the injury won’t keep me off my feet.  I still don’t quite understand how the injury occurred.  A couple of weeks ago my husband and I went away for a couple of days for our anniversary.  As listeners of the podcast may know, I am an avid reader.  So, while we were in the car I read.  When we got home my shoulder was bothering me, but I didn’t really think about it.  I put the TENS machine on the shoulder to try and loosen it up.  After a couple of days, it was better.  However, then we went on a couple hour drive for an event we were attending.  Again, I read in the car.  The next day I couldn’t even move my shoulder.  On the way home, while reading, I felt it tightening up and kept changing positions, but apparently not enough.  Yep – believe it or not – I hurt my shoulder reading!  Ugh! I am wondering if this related back to the swimming issue I had a year ago January which I went to physical therapy for and thought was resolved.  I will be doing my PT exercises again during this training cycle.  At least it isn’t keeping me from getting out on my feet. We have had so much rain in the area lately although it has been spotty.  There have been times when one spot will get a couple of inches and another spot just a few miles away will not have any rain.  It is so strange.  It has also made it difficult to get out on the trails.  Between not knowing if it is going to storm and the trails being very wet from the rain, it limits trail activity.  Luckily the training plan only requires one trail workout a week.  It’s usually a long one – at least 3 hours and usually longer for me, so fitting in it to the schedule and watching the weather is an ongoing project each week. Thanks for joining me this week.  Be sure to check our show notes for links to inspiration items and …  don't forget to stop and smell the roses.

Sensory Strides #36 Just Go Bike, Ends of the Earth Cycling, Cycling for More, Revelation Wellness, Patty Birchard, Reving the Word, Miss Wisconsin's Outstanding Teen, Savannah Horstman, Miss America's Outstanding Teen
Sensory Strides podcast
Quote “God is great all the time.  All the time God is great.” Welcome to the Sensory Strides podcast.  Observations of the world through activity, reading, listening, and everything else. Sometimes you see God’s hand in multiple ways in a short time period.  This week has been one of those times. Normally when I am on my long workouts I listen to podcasts about podcasting, fitness, or other self-improvement topics.  One podcast I have listened to is Just Go Bike which is hosted by RAGBRAI and the Iowa Bicycle Coalition.  Last summer, they interviewed End of the Earth Cycling, who also has a podcast called Cycling for More.  I was interested in the Cycling for More podcast and subscribed after hearing them on Just Go Bike.  However, I was so backlogged on my podcast listening that I didn’t get around to listening to the episodes until a few weeks ago. I had kept all the episodes in the playlist and downloaded all the new ones since, so I had quite a few to listen to.  Cycling for More featured Patty Birchard of Revelation Wellness.  That episode led me to the founder of Revelation Wellness’s podcast Reving the Word which has workout episodes with encouragement and reflection based on a reading from the bible. Exactly the balance needed on some of my workouts and the best balance I have found for this niche. http://justgobike.net/ https://ragbrai.com/ https://iowabicyclecoalition.org/ https://www.endscycling.com/podcast https://www.revelationwellness.org/category/podcast/ My workout this weekend was a 12-mile trail hike.  The map for the park I am using for my long workouts doesn’t have trail distances on it, so I estimated what a good route would be for my 12 mile hike that was scheduled.  I knew I may have to do some backtracking in order to make the goal, but I didn’t want to overestimate and be out there longer than planned either.  I did do a couple of rounds on one of the trails, before hiking the last mile plus portion back to the car.  I ended with 12.17 miles – I probably wouldn’t have gotten that close even if the trail mileage had been on the map and I planned it.  And my Garmin’s battery died about 10 seconds after I hit stop when I got back to the car. I also want to wish Savannah Horstman good luck as she prepares to travel to Orlando to compete at Miss America’s Outstanding Teen.  This young lady has competed with my daughter in pageants over the last five years.  She has had the opportunity to compete at state twice before winning this year.  Savi is a poised, talented, young lady with a heart of gold.  She has tweaked and focused her platform over the last few years and you can tell she knows what she stands for and how she wants to support others.  God has plan for this young lady, and I look forward to watching her continue to grow and see the amazing things she is going to accomplish.  Good luck Savannah!

Sensory Strides #35
Sensory Strides podcast
Quote “Back in the saddle again.” – Gene Autry Welcome to the Sensory Strides podcast.  Observations of the world through activity, reading, listening, and everything else. I did it!  It has been nearly 11 months, but I got back on my bike again. My husband switched out my pedals for me yesterday, taking off the clipless pedals I used for my 70.3 last year and putting my safer, regular pedals back on.  I’ve never understood why pedals that connect your feet to the pedal are called clipless.  I’m glad I didn’t have them on though.  As it was I almost fell over at the first stop sign.  It would have been a complete wipeout if I had the racing pedals on. I got back on as my 50k training plan calls for cross training.  So, the bike is back in the rotation. Although I wasn’t trying to ride fast, I was really slow.  I had an hour training session and didn’t even get to 10 miles. My butt is a bit sore, but not as much as I would have expected.  I think my legs are going to be talking to me tomorrow though.

Sensory Strides #34 weight management, Tom Hanks
Sensory Strides podcast
Quote “It’s supposed to be hard.  If it wasn’t hard, everyone would do it…The hard is what makes it great.” – Tom Hanks in A League of Their Own Welcome to the Sensory Strides podcast.  Observations of the world through activity, reading, listening, and everything else. I have been struggling for quite a few months with my weight / body shape over the past few months.  I don’t necessarily focus on my weight in general, but I do pay attention to how my clothes fit and use them getting tighter or heading into summer as identifiers for when I need to focus on my eating and get things back to what is normal for me. I have been trying since last November to pay more attention to what I am eating and limits sweets and less healthy options.  I wasn’t seeing any movement so after the first of the year, I started recording my intake on my phone to not only monitor my calories, but also my carb/protein/fat mix and some macronutrients I know I sometimes get low with.  I stayed within the goals I had for over a month and wasn’t seeing any progress. This has never been a problem for me before.  Losing weight isn’t easy, but I can be very focused and have always been able to keep my self in my limits when I work at it. I took a couple of weeks off when I went on vacation, but then tried again for another month when we returned. At this point, I am very close to my highest weight ever rather than anywhere near losing weight. I can feel it in my clothes since none of them fit well and in my body in general.  Even my calves are much bigger than they have ever been before. It is so frustrating, but I’m not willing to give up the fight yet.  I just have to find a new tact to take.

Sensory Strides #33 Lindsay Hiken, Mark Allen, Ironman
Sensory Strides podcast
“You can keep going and your legs might hurt for a week, or you can quit and your mind will hurt for a lifetime” Mark Allen Welcome to the Sensory Strides podcast.  Observations of the world through activity, reading, listening, and everything else. I want to give a shout out to Lindsay Hiken of the age groupie podcast.  She completed Iron Man Santa Rosa in May this year with a half hour to spare!  I appreciate her summary of her race as it really gave me ideas for the future, made me feel ‘normal’ since I race with a standard road bike, and balanced reality and encouragement. http://agegroupie.libsyn.com/ep-26-ironman-santa-rosa-race-report I loved how she shared her why for racing IronMan and how that came full circle during her IronMan race. I am so on board with the worry about the GI issues.  That is always my first priority the last few days before the race. While listening to Lindsay, I thought back on my first tri.  Perhaps one of the issues I had was riding the bike I had bought in high school, thirty years before. I was also excited to know that see is a run /walk person when need be.  I’ve decided that my 50k is going to be run /walk – I just can’t force my body to train that hard for that long.  Especially since my run pace and walk pace are fairly close.  I will get all the miles in, just with less impact on the joints. The part about being alone on the course after dark was scary.  I’m not sure how I would feel about that.  Especially in the environment she described. I laughed out loud when she talked about not wanting to every get on her bike again after the race.  I still have touched mine since August.
