core | commute

I had a great core day! Finally.

After my two falls mountain biking late this summer it not only set me back in terms of cycling in general but also in terms of being able to do the core work that allows me to ride a bike in the first place. So it has been hugely satisfying to be able to do exercises like the side plank, push-ups and twisters again that up until just a couple of days ago were too painful to perform.

Whew.

Ever feel like there is a whole shitload of stuff you have to do just to be able to do the stuff you really want to do…? I do. Constantly.

The added bonus today was that as I did my core exercises I felt like I was getting stronger instead of more tired. Gotta love that. Perhaps it was because I finally got some sleep? Whatever, it felt great.

The other thing that felt great was the chiropractic and massage I got from Mobility+ Healthcare. Those guys are fantastic.
