First off–Can barely move I am so sore from weight lifting, lunges, squats, etc that I have not done in weeks. Sitting onto the toilet is a chore. Anyways…
My FAVORITE time of the summer is finally here!! I look forward to this event each July! Unlike the Olympics, which force you to impatiently wait for 4 years until the next round… (ugh so rude. I LOVE the Olympics)… my other favorite sport competition takes place every year (thank goodness!)
Le Tour de France!!!
I LOVE The Tour! Click HERE for all the info on this years Tour! My family loves to bike and sitting around watching each stage of the Tour is one of my favorite summer memories.
I even had the privileged of seeing a few stages of the tour when I studies abroad in Brussels, Belgium in Summer 2010. That was Lance’s last tour! I also saw him and the other teams a few weeks before the start of Le Tour in Lugano, Switzerland (((no joke, the most beautiful town I have ever been to)) for Le Tour de Suisse. SO AWESOME.
Anyways, I am super pumped that I can glue myself in front of the t.v with a cup of coffee every morning and watch Le Tour live at 8am EST on NBC (I tell you this so that you too can watch it…it is also on again in the evening for people who miss it live).
In other news, since I am still not running (too much)… the planks have continued. Last week I set a NEW PR– 12 mins!! Here is the proof:
How did I occupy my mind and stop thinking about how much this sucked??— I repeated over and over my memory verses for Young Life:: John 15:1-17
Seriously, it takes so much of my brain to concentrate on reciting these verses I forget about the planks (kinda).
And all this hard work in memorizing it paid off!! I recited it to my bosses and got a free Young Life shirt! I love ANYTHING free…
Anyone watch Le Tour de France???
How those planks going guys? What do you think about to stay occupied?
