Motorcycles and Kettelbells

First the motorcycle. Pete and I rode for about 5 hours yesterday, off and on. My mind tends to come up with the most awesome blog posts on that bike. It's me, my mind and the open road, so I become really philosophical. LOL I couldn't help but think of all the things in my life that I or someone around me told me that couldn't or shouldn't be done. Of all the opportunities that I wasted in the past because I was afraid or had been told that I couldn't/shouldn't do it. The fact that I bought a motorclycle and put 3400 miles on it in less than 90 days and rode all the way to the Ozarks last year is AMAZING. And while I still had people telling me that I couldn't or shouldn't do it, I did it. I made a stand. So the next time someone tells you that you couldn't or shouldn't do something or you're too afraid to do it, think again and take that chance.

Kettlebells. I made it. Firstly, I accomplished 1/3 classes for my April goal. I actually attended my first fitness class! Cool. I was afraid (silly I know) that I'd be a dork who coulnd't do it, but I did it.

As for the class it's self, I liked it. It is both cardio and weights. It had me sweating within 15 minutes and teh last 10 minutes I was wondering how far he was going to push me! I modified what I could do for some of the moves. I liked it so much that I think I'm going to join the 6 week class. And Pete's going to come with me. Something that we can do together. I think I would have done better, but my siatic nerve is RAGING right now. (see the above motorcycle seat for the cause of that). Hopefully I can get it calmed down and keep going with the class.
