Ready to head out.
1. I rode my bike to work today! I loved it. I only had to leave about 5 minutes earlier than usual unlike when I ran it last spring. It is slightly less than 4 miles and a lot of it is downhill! It was cold but a great way to start the day. I got to see my bike all day (in the front of my classroom tucked behind my chair) and know I had a ride home ahead of me and not a visit to use the elliptical at the gym. That certainly brought a smile to my face each and every time I thought it! When I rode home I rode right by my turn and continued up the road. I do have my minimum mileage to ride and just the ride to and from work wasn't going to cut it. I probably looked a little strange with a huge backpack on my back. Speaking of which I think it is time to get a good saddlebag. Any recommendations?
It's getting pretty around here!
2. When I talk about my workouts each day I realize I have been shortchanging myself when I think about what I do. I am spending about an hour a day stretching. This has to count for something! I get up about 20 minutes earlier to fit it in in the morning and no matter how tired I am I do my stretches each evening. Not aerobic and not exciting at all but I surely hope they are helping!
3. Grey's Anatomy season opener tonight..........the only show I watch live. It certainly can't beat the finale for excitement!
