It's November now. I haven't biked in about ten days, for the most part it's too cold in the mornings to ride. So last weekend I cleaned up the back yard, brought in things that had been stored out there since the basement renovation and put the bike away for the winter. Then this week has been warm again and I could have riding every day. Too bad for me.
I don't want to get out of shape this winter. My plan is to keep running and building my distance to be ready for some 10 km races next year, along with a sprint distance triathlon and if things go well an Olympic distance one as well.
With our busy schedule, Sue being back at work, the days getting much shorter, it's been hard for either of us to run consistently. Ideally, I'd like to be going three times a week. But that just wasn't happening. Until I realized that the shortest route home from work is 4 miles, right at the distance I've been running. So twice a week, usually Monday & Thursday, I take my running gear to work and run home. It's better then car pooling, I have to get home some how and this way I'm done my run by the time we eat supper. Also, Sue doesn't have to drive the extra distance to get me across town after picking up Darcy, so we use less gas. Yee Haw!
I've done the impossible, I've found the elusive 25th hour in the day.
