Sunday was freezing cold (high in 40's), but Monday morning dawned a little warmer and Tuesday was downright gorgeous and sunny (high in 80's) - like spring should be! About freaking time! After a couple of busy days of work (and some raging PMS) I really NEEDED to get out on my bike. And yet, I had to cajole myself a little into it. But I didn't let any excuses get in the way. Having a new pretty blue jersey to wear didn't hurt. My husband was shuttling my daughter between piano and softball practice and my son was digging into his spelling homework. I had plenty of time to get out for a ride.
I left home about 5:20 and headed out in the sunshine. I rode out past Taos to the Bald Hill Road intersection. Stopped for just a minute to get a drink and have a few sport beans. I headed back bombing my way with a "whoo-hoo!" on the long downhill on Algoa. Cranked my way up the hill to home. I averaged 13.95 mph even with the climbing for 19.1 miles. Go me!
If I can dance through the rain drops that are probably coming tomorrow, I'll either go for a run with Susan or go for a bike ride.
Swimming = 10,000 yds = 5.7 mi
