Today I did my second ride in the iFit Japan series. I’m doing a challenge to complete this series this month. At the end, iFit will be mailing me some kind of a reward. I’m very excited. 😉

But for the life of me, I can’t find the iFit Japan playlist, so that I can follow the exercise series in order. Today my trainer greeted me with: “We’re on our eighth ride today and it’s one of our harder ones! Lots of incline and we’re going to be doing three and four minute intervals. Are you ready for this? Come on, let’s go!”

I think I heard my guardian angel laugh at me.

Author: Biking in Kyoto (iFit Cycling) & Biking Peace ⛩️

I’ve been bicycling still and working with a health coach to make cycling part of my regular routine. I’m starting an iFit challenge to do a 12 part Japan series. Today’s ride was in Kyoto and I got to see a Shinto shrine, some cemeteries, older buildings that were untouched by WWII and a beautiful lake. The landscape was really beautiful and peaceful.

Terrible Poem: “Oh, I’m a Gonna Go!”🎶

Oh, I’m a Gonna Go!

I’m a gonna go out where the wind durst blow
Sand in my knickers and mud in my toes
Where cow pies rightly disappear and the crickets eat them dangburned rusted bandoliers!
Where the guns don’t get to shootin’,
Where there’s no high brow falutin’
And everyone dances ’till half past three…
If you need me, why that there where’s I’ll be…!
In the Land of Absolution…!

-A.R. Clayton

Blogmas Day 6 & 7: Cycling & Peacock People 🦚🚴‍♀️

I ran out of time yesterday, so I doubled up my biking today. One hour and a few extra minutes for eating junk food yesterday. It was a weak moment.  Go team. 😁👍

Interval training equals happy training. Controlled pedaling, RPMs, RPE, cadence and all that lingo I’m still learning. 📝

Tomorrow’s the last day. I have ideas for November. But here’s a question for you writers: Apple or PC? Seriously now, I don’t want to see a fruit salad fight, but some honest, polite opinions.

See you tomorrow for Day 31, the last day of the biking challenge. Cheers.

Author: October Cycling Challenge–YouTube Rest (Day 29/31)🎬

Today I did 30 minutes watching YouTube, at my own pace. The more I bike, the easier it gets and the faster the time goes. It’s nice to feel the progress I’ve made.

Just two more days of the challenge. See you here tomorrow for Day 30. We’ll end with a bang on Halloween. 🥳🎃

Cheers!

Two main thoughts crossed my mind in today’s workout: 1.) We’re going to die and 2.) My iFit trainer is a very positive person. Several times we had to lift our bikes and walk (I watched and still pedaled from home, of course) while we navigated rock and slate on the paths. Instead of being angry or frustrated, my trainer complimented the terrain and how helpful it was on training us. How cool is that?

I’m taking that perspective with me. Even if I would’ve fallen off the mountain today, it would’ve been a good conversation starter with St. Peter. Along with the glacier we saw. Chamonix is a little piece of heaven.
