My Kind of Mother's Day

So the way didn't really go according to plan.  Wed I was totally tired after the long bike ride Sun and then longish run/walk on Tue so I took another rest day.  Thursday I just was lazy - another rest day.  Friday I woke up to the most awful pinching pain in my neck and shoulder.  Could hardly move my right arm or turn my head.  Not sure what the heck I did there, but nothing seemed to help.  Hot shower, ibuprofen, massage, rest, etc - nothing.  I barely slept Fri night.  Saturday wasn't much better and I was pretty short with everyone after the lack of sleep.  Decided for Mother's Day to be my kind of day - we needed to hit mass on Sat night.

So here is MY kind of Mother's Day:
  • Halfway decent night of sleep
  • 25.11 mi bike ride across town and back (another length PR - though slightly overdressed as in my mind 50° seemed cool, but jacket wasn't needed)
  • Greeted with flowers, cards, gifts and breakfast when I got home
  • Hot shower after breakfast
  • Chillaxing around the house all day
Life is good!  Happy Mother's Day! 


  1. Sounds like the perfect kind of Mother's day! I hope you are feeling good!

  2. Sounds great! Happy Mother's Day!

  3. Nice ride. You are getting to the ride distances where I found that the tipping point was - start doing say, 30, miles regularly and 40-50 miles + suddenly becomes very doable very quickly.

  4. Sounds like a perfect Mother's Day... :)

  5. 40K, nice! It's hard to get bike clothing right because of the wind. You may have slept funny on your neck to cause the pain, or it was a delayed reaction and something seized up. Smart to take the rest days as needed.

  6. sounds pretty dang perfect.
    love it.
