No matter how early I get up, I still waste time getting out the door, so I got going about 15 minutes later than I planned.
I have a feeling there will be some bonus mileage at boot camp tonight that may get me closer to 5 miles. And if I’m short I’ll tack some extra mileage on when I run tomorrow.
The temperature felt so nice while I was running. And today is supposed to be the one day this week that it doesn’t rain… So I changed my mind and decided I needed to get to the Park & Ride at Edworthy and bike the rest of the way in.
I’m finding that my attitude towards the bike is shifting. I’ve always enjoyed riding (although I didn’t ride for years…), but now I want more. I’m starting to feel the same way about biking that I do about running – I want to do it, and I have to do it. I bought a pair of *ahem* kind of expensive Pearl Izumi shorts because they have the most amazing padding in them and well, let’s be honest, I look good in them! If I weren’t such a clutz getting on and off my bike I’d probably be looking at clips and shoes in earnest. And aside from all that, I love that I’m feeling healthy and athletic right now. It’s definitely a good feeling.
