A beautiful sunset last night
1. I stayed off my bike today. It was hard but I had a run scheduled so I got out there and did it. BUT I have another run scheduled for tomorrow and my biking friend asked me if I could go biking again and I didn't even hesitate.........YES! I don't know when I will fit the run in, it is a busy weekend with some more spectating coming up but I'm not going to worry much. I want another bike ride.
2. Tomorrow is my last day where it is my choice whether I go into work or not. I probably will in the afternoon but next week there are no choices. I.........will...........be...........back.............at...............work. No time for the distance of bike rides I have been doing. It's going to be tricky but I'm going to find a way to keep running and riding.
Running with my daughter!
Look closely, she's crossing the bridge.
3. I expected to do my run alone today but Emily joined me much to my delight. If I ran with her more often I would get some of that speed back. The fastest I ever was was a year I ran with her more frequently. She is in town to participate in the USA Age Group National Championships. So we will be back out there with our bright pink t shirts. Our wait won't be as long as when we watched the Ironman but it will be a fun day cheering our girl on for sure.
Same cast with a few more friends along
*I always like to throw one more in. I just started a book I can tell I am not going to be crazy about. But I didn't get it from the library I bought it so I know I will finish it. In fact I bought it twice - once at Target and once off Amazon. Crazy. So I did return one of them but still I have to read the one I've got. Sigh. Do you continue to read books you aren't crazy about? I don't if I borrowed them or got them from the library but I often do if bought them. Sometimes though I am doing so much skimming it is hard to believe I still know the story line.
