Well, I was pretty sore this morning from my run yesterday so it would have been wise to stick to a nice easy recovery ride…unfortunately it was just a little too nice out today, at 65 and mostly sunny. I did go for a nice little four miler with the wife and kids and was pretty much in my glory, my youngest in a bike buggy behind my wife’s bike, my eldest on her bike just tooling down the road. Unfortunately we only went four and I was still Jones’ing. So I decided to go out on my own for another six. I started out at a pretty nice easy tempo but then I got my other foot clipped in and had to ratchet it up a bit. I ended up doing the six in 18 minutes. Honestly though, what are you gonna do when the good Lord grants you a sunny day more than double freezing? Lay on the couch and take a nap? I don’t think so.
I’ll be paying for that at my bowling league tonight. Ah well, thank God for SPRING! I missed the nice weather immensely – and the weather channel is showing us between 60 and 70 all week long! Woohoo!
Merry (Belated) Christmas!
