My posture sucks. It always has. And I think my bad posture, coupled with a weaker-than-it-should-be core are the culprits in my neck and shoulder pain when riding Cha-Cha. I made a conscious decision a couple of years ago to get my shoulders out of my ears and I've been pretty successful with that. However, I spend my days at a desk and I think I will spend my dottage sort of bent over, complete with the dowager hump. Not a pretty picture.
So it's time to do some work on strengthening my core so that everything just doesn't collapse into my shoulders when I'm cycling. Plus, I do think I need to raise my seat just a smidge. I'm not as much on the ball of my foot as I'd like to be. I spent some time on last night's ride analyzing what all was amiss. I think I need a realignment, for sure.
So sleep results - last night's sleep wasn't as solid as it was the night before. While I did wake up several times, I didn't notice any NS. So perhaps it is movement in the right direction. My body isn't dealing well with the additional carbs, even though they are "good" carbs. It's as though I have swelled. Oh well.
I'm taking my sister to lunch today, so no lunchtime workout for me. I'll try to get in a bit of a bike ride this evening, as this fall weather is pretty spectacular. While I do have some other errands to run, I'll wait until dark to do those.
Take good care of yourself. Be kind to others. Stand up straight.
