Spring is peeking out at least
I think I gloated too much about the awesome spring day on Friday because Saturday Old Man Winter was back. T said it was snowing like crazy at her house and the ground was covered in white. We were only getting flurries at my house but it was cold, windy, damp and miserable. If she hadn't come down I may have not gone or gone to the gym which I NEVER do on a weekend. But off we went and I grumped and complained for at least the first mile. The one good thing was that for a change the wind was with us on the way back. We made it 6 miles but I have had pleasanter runs. I didn't bother take the camera to get any more pics of dismal weather. No biking today. Tomorrow is bound to be better.
Okay Sunday,today, was better. It was sunny when we started out which lasted a minute and a half. But it was warm and no snow anywhere! We ran 8 while chatting about our busy May and wondering when we could run together. Next Sunday I have a half and T is racing in another race. This is a big deal as T rarely races and this time she is racing on her own! Go T!!! I felt good today and before we knew it back home we were.
BUT I wasn't done. I came in the house, had some chocolate milk, changed my shirt and headed out on my bike! I went 11, 1 more than Friday but a very hilly additional mile. I am so excited to have my bike back out. I am going to try to ride at least 2 times a week including one commute although sometimes that may be additional. So what is it called when you run then bike? A reverse brick?
Today I came home from Easter dinner and made lunches, ironed clothes, packed running clothes and drove all the stuff to school. Does that defeat the commute? Heck no. I am hoping to commute at least 3 times this week and I drove the stuff down once. The only problem is there is a ton of rain predicted including thunderstorms. I can deal with plain rain. We shall see. But the best thing is the idea of commuting by bike tomorrow has me excited about getting up and going tomorrow instead of dreading the first day back after a vacation.
