In Pursuit of crazy Eyeris: Week 1

SufferJets Ithaca

Whoo hoo! The first installment of the weekly series In Pursuit of Crazy Eyeris! I’m so excited!

Things are moving along SO FREAKING FAST!

When I decided to do this Derby thing, I thought I would get through the winter and then watch a lot of Derby in the summer, and then after the season I would try out.


I’m starting workshops on FEBRUARY FREAKING 15TH!

The Ithaca League of Women Rollers (ILWR) has a new program where they offer clinics basically all year. HOLY HELL! So I sat. I thought. I decided. I’M NOT WAITING!

So I really need to get to this building my strength and endurance. I worked out on the elliptical this week, although not as much as I had wanted. Day one started on Wednesday, and miraculously, I was not sore the next day. I went hard on the elliptical on day two, and was a little sore the next day. I was so tired though, from waking up early with the baby, and to work. But I did manage to get on the elliptical and did an easy workout, stretched good, and then did some Wii dancing with the boy. This weekend proved a no-go with working out after yesterday’s bout with barfing. But today is not over, so maybe there is a chance! I have big plans to connect my Wii with my sister’s Wii in Georgia so we can dance together. At least there is that!

My quest for acquiring skates began this week too. I contacted the ILWR about purchasing used skates, and I need to go to Black Mamba Skate Shop in Syracuse to get fitted and see what they have and what advice they have. I just want to do that when I’m not getting mommed to death. Maybe next weekend?

This coming week I plan to continue on the elliptical and add some core strength exercises. I’m a little worried about my back, and I know the only way to protect it is to strengthen my core. And repair the abdominal muscles that were separated after I had the baby. I should have been doing that a long time ago!

What are your goals for the week?
