    Darn it!!!!!

    Well I was so excited about getting back in the saddle this evening until boom, crash, clap, flash thunder and lightning. Noooooooooo it's not fair. I actually want to get my lazy butt up and go riding. Oh and might I add that it was all sunny and gorgeous while I was confined to my desk at work. I've been home less that 1 hour and the sky opens up and explodes. Guess I'll be getting of the computer too, not trying to test the surge protector today, lol

    When it rains I put my trainer in the garage and watch the storm while I spin. I know it sucks, but better than the basement (if you have a trainer).

    A trainer is on my wish list, actually it's in my amazon shopping cart just in case I somehow stumble upon a duffle bag with cash in it. Unfortunatly I can't justify that expense right now. The whole "but it's for my health" line is not working on the hubby anymore...

    The rain cleared up and I decided to ride to my kids school which is 2. whatever miles away. My 12 year old came with me. I think he was just looking out for me since he was with me when I almost passed out/died .5 miles in attempting the same trip last week, lol. We rode 4. whatever miles bringing me to a 2 day total of 10 miles!!!! I am just dripping awesomeness, known to others as sweat! I climbed all the hills staying put in my saddle ( kudos to all the tips from others on climbing) I even wore my heart rate monitor ,so I could glance at it during my anticipated heart attack (which never happened by the way) YES! all in all I say this calls for a celebration, a round of appletini's (crystal light of course) for all!!!

    Oh did I mention my butt was friggin sore as crap the second it touched my saddle, but I didn't wimp out (like I normally would)!!
