Gettin Sporty With It

Hey guys!  How was your weekend? Did you do anything fun? My sister-in-law, Bec, is visiting with us from Australia for the week.  We decided to show her a good time Cape Cod style. And I have some exciting news…

I am back on my bike!! Woo hoo!  On Thursday my doctor officially declared my elbow healed!  It’s going to take awhile getting back to weight bearing exercises like push-ups and downward dog, but my elbow is healed!

Fall Bike
So of course the weekend after my elbow is declared healed, I’m back in my bike for a total of 34 miles this weekend (14 on Saturday and 20 on Sunday).  We even ride the trail where the incident happened. Luckily there were no falls this time, just incredibly beautiful, crisp weather.

I think the leaves are going to change very soon!  What do you think?  They are already beginning to turn a little and I think it will be about one more week until we are in full fledged color!

Fall Foliage
And because I don’t seem to understand the words “ease back into things,” we also kayaked 6k on Saturday.  It was absolutely gorgeous!  The sun was shining.  The sky was blue and the scenery green with hints of red and gold.  I wish I had a waterproof camera to catch the views.  Amazing.

Can I just say that the summer is gorgeous but the sunsets you get after a clear fall day are unbeatable.

Fall Sunset
You know what else is unbeatable, this amazing salsa my mother made for dinner.  It was so fall and paired perfectly with our salmon.  Apples, dried cranberries, red onion and yellow pepper.  Even the colors scream fall!!

And because there is no rest for the weary, we got out for an hour of tennis on Sunday.  This weather is just so conducive for outside sports. It reminds me of playing fall field hockey in high school.

Being from Australia, Bec eats a lot of great seafood but lobster is pretty expensive.  We took her to one of our favorite lunch spots on the water and dined on these babies!

Unfortunately a lot was left behind because there was so much!  But the views were amazing!

Weekend verdict: Elbow doesn’t hurt, although it’s a little stuff.  The car ride home was very quiet because we were all so tired!

Readers, what did you do this weekend?  Do you jump back in after an injury or ease in?  Do you try to get outside more during the fall?

    Yay, glad to hear your elbow is feeling better! I’m also loving the idea of a fall salsa – never thought to include dried cranberries but sounds absolutely delicious!

      Thanks Sun! The dried cranberries were a nice touch and we didn’t even need to use oil or citrus or anything for seasoning.

      The salsa was one of those things we kind of just threw together at the last minute and ended up working out really well!

    FYI, I am pretty excited to learn you have lived in Australia! I will likely have a billion questions for you in the next few months. We are going to Australia in Feb!

      The crispness in the air is perfect for getting outdoors! I was just counting down the days until I could get back on my bike!

    I always wanted to go Cape Cod! Looks like so much fun. It always amazes me how everything is so close by in the East Coast. Here in California, you have to drive 5+ hours in any direction just to get out of the state!
