Managed to get on the rollers this AM and I was glad for it. For sure I feel much better at the end of an easy roller session than at the beginning and isn't that what an active recovery ride is supposed to be? Check.

Shelley and I did our core routine again and today it was hard. Every single exercise. Funny (read: not very funny at all) how that happens, I have no idea why.

Lunch time saw me at the IMA again for a routine that I am really enjoying. I hit the matts in the group exercise room for some dedicated stretching and then it's into the sauna for some ultra relaxation. If it was just a few degrees less hot I swear I could fall asleep... Man does the sauna make me thirsty!

The stretching has made me realize how not limber I really am in spite of me previously telling people that I am kinda flexible. Obviously my head has been firmly stuck up my own ass for quite some time. But I'm slowly getting better and I hope it will do my back and IT band some good meaning less pain on the bike and fewer injuries when I start running in the fall.

That list of stuff I need to do just to do the stuff I like is getting longer... :(
