So yesterday was a pretty decent weather day. Got up into the mid-40's in the afternoon and I was sure I would kick my butt out the door for a run. But then I didn't. Stacy didn't want to go and then I thought about going to the Y and then I thought, "No, I'll just go for a run" and next thing I knew, we were tucking kids into bed and going to bed early. I guess that is ok as rest is important, but what a fail in the exercise department. Food wasn't much better - granola breakfast, hot dog and half hamburger for lunch, smoked pork and hamburger for dinner. I did have a bunch of carrots for a snack in there too though.
Weather was even more gorgeous today. More sun and mid-50's temps! So I dawdled through my morning and finally kicked myself out the door at 1 PM (the beauty of being self-employed). Spent the next 1 hr 20 min on my bike. Road out to the interchange, added some hill by ABP, back to Shamrock and round Scholastic, back to the interchange, back to ABP hill and then up Wavco hill and home for 13.4 miles. Was sure it was further. The hills were hurting. But I did notice that I can do things I couldn't even back in June/July. I can now ride standing to climb a hill (I could have geared down, but I wanted to try it). I recover from the exertion of the hill faster too. So even though my average speed leaves something to be desired, I'm pretty happy with my 2nd ride of the new year.
Breakfast was homemade bread and peanut butter. Lunch was fat free refried beans made into a burrito with salsa and a little sour cream and cheese. Dinner is still up in the air though likely cleaning out the last of the leftover pork and hamburgers.
