On my lovely canopy road with a change in the weather
It was 32 degrees outside. I told T it wasn't snowing and I was going for a bike ride if she wanted to join me. By the time she got here it was snowing. Did I wear my rain pants? No! Do I understand that rain and snow are the same thing? Well, maybe. I got soaked. The first 8 1/2 miles were fine. I was a little cold but really just my toes and fingers. It snowed a fair amount and we were getting quite wet! Then my toes got quite cold and my fingers were beyond cold. I think it was the combo of the wet and the cold. Believe me the last 3 1/2 miles were agony.
By this point both T and I were more than a little cold!
I really lost my confidence as a cold weather biker! Hence....
Today was also 32 degrees and spitting snow all day. I had thought I might try running today where you actually warm up as you move but decided I would not yet. So I told T I was heading to the gym. I had not been once in October so it was nice to actually use it since I am paying for it. I enjoyed it as I was not in a hurry and I saw people I had not seen in awhile. I read my book something I can do on the elliptical (Julia Glass's new book - The Widower's Tale - quite good). I used the elliptical for what I consider my minimum workout on it. Believe me there is always an amount I have to do no matter the form of exercise!
This week is going to be a tricky one to fit in any exercise but I will try. I CAN NOT WAIT for Friday when I will see my girl! Our plan is to use the gym there since we can't do our usual running! Plus Jameson was here to help his dad get some wood today and stayed for supper! Yeah for adult children who spend time with you! Love them!
