This week’s goals went out of the window by Wednesday. On Tuesday night I went out for a 3.75 mile run and it all seemed normal until the next morning. My plantar fasciitis came back and put me out of commission for the rest of the week. I went out for walks, not long ones, but I needed to stay a little active.
That’s the bad news, on to the good news:
1) I got a new guitar – I’ve always wanted to learn to play an instrument and this week I decided it was going to be the guitar. I also want to learn to read music. I got an acoustic guitar, it’s actually my brother’s old guitar that he never used, you can see from the picture he didn’t play much.
My guitar goal: be able to play at least 6 songs. Ideally 3 in Spanish and 3 in English.
2) I got a new bike – I’m concerned about the PF not going way. I’ll give my feet some rest and bike instead. Thanks to my buddy Jose, who is a huge bike enthusiast, I bought this awesome bike to get me started. I believe I have all the basics to get me started. Padded biking shorts, helmet, bike rack for my car, a bib (I didn’t know its function), and the bike!
I took it out for a 10 mile test drive today and I loved it! I’m excited about this and terrified that I’ll like it. I still need to get the heart rate monitor and a phone mount for the bike.
A huge to Jose for spending hours educating me on the cycling lifestyle as well as finding me this bitching bike. Also thanks to my brother for the guitar, I intend to put it to good use.
