"My" mountain - this is in lots of photos on my blog.
Great weather has arrived in Vermont. It is going to get too hot for me tomorrow (90s - horrible especially at work on the second floor, south side, not air conditioned room filled with small sweaty bodies) but right now it is great! Having said that I went to the gym yesterday but I had a great workout. I'm not sure why but the whole run was terrific. Today I got up early and was running before 5:30. Trouble was apparently I did still have some of the same problems I had Saturday night and I had to run for the bushes twice. Not really how I wanted to start my day but it was cool and very little traffic so most of the run was great.
I came home, showered and then jumped on my bike for my quick ride to work. Loved it! I had the ride home to look forward to all day. I did extra hills to put in one last hilly ride before Sunday. I will probably commute again Thursday but may shorten it.
These guys become curious about me.
While I was riding it occurred to me not for the first time that I LOVE BIKING! Yes, I also "love" running but it is more the feeling after running or racing that I love than the actual doing of it. I think I have even posted about this before but it hit me so strongly again today how much I love biking. I don't think I run along that often (ever?) with a big smile on my face. Today I was grinning ear to ear while biking. I am so glad I have gotten back into this sport. It seems like other people at work are also becoming bikers and we are planning some rides this summer.
Now I'm on my way down to my house - another angle.
Same pasture, different view
When I was going up the longest hill today (I need to figure out how long it is) I was trying not to use the "granny gear" which I assume is the lowest gear. I may have used the "My daughter is pregnant and about to deliver gear' but I did not use the granny gear
I wasn't going to post today but I had my camera with me and took some pictures so I thought I would. I hope you all had a great day too!
What form of exercising brings a smile to your face?
