Posted by on September 18, 2017 at 1:00 pm

I recently had 3 friends get hit by a car while riding their bikes so it prompted me to write this column to remind drivers and cyclists how to navigate the roads safely. I’m not blaming either group – I think we can all do better!

Mind Games Get You Through a Workout….

….or race!

Have you ever struggled to get through a workout? We’ve recently had a number of local athletes complete an Ironman Triathlon which consists of a 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike and 26.2 mile run. Can you imagine how mentally tough you need to be to get through the training to prepare you to race and complete these types of distances?! Can you imagine swimming and biking for that long and then having to start a marathon in the middle of the day?! It is physically and mentally grueling and Ironman athletes report that they have to play mind games all day to get to the finish line.

Bike To Get Fit

Sherri Bike1Cycling is a low-impact activity that works your heart and lungs, strengthens your lower body and burns some calories. Plus it gets you outside which is good for your body, mind and spirit!

Most of us have rode and owned a bike at some point in our life so there’s some muscle memory there and should be easy to get started.

Already Have a Bike?

Great, but if you haven’t rode it for a while, it would be wise to go get it tuned up. Head to http://www.vancouvercyclery.com/ or http://www.camasbikes.com/ locally or https://www.westernbikeworks.com/ in Portland.

September and October often tend to be the best months to explore the outdoors here in the Northwest. It tends to not be too hot, or too cold, the rainy season hasn’t set in yet and the colors as the leaves change are absolutely spectacular!

Plus, the fall season often inspires people to ‘turn over a new leaf’ so to speak! Kids are back in school, summer holidays are over and we may be feeling the effect of too many BBQs and are ready to make our health and fitness a priority! Read more on Get Outdoors & Fall Into Fitness…
