The Good: We had a great holiday weekend. We did all kinds of good things and even got a lot of time to relax too. From pool parties to professional soccer games to lunch and dinner with friends – it really worked out to be a good weekend! I think everybody enjoyed it.
The Bad: I had hoped for a ‘mega-mileage weekend’. While I got to ride on Saturday and Monday – as well as long on Friday, I duffed out on the long ride on Sunday. I kind of regret that, but given the way I felt today – maybe that was good. I think i’m starting to pay for all my miles. About 8-10 days ago, I had a bike ride where everything just felt PERFECT. I shifted right, I cornered better, my bike felt like it fit like a glove…. that was good. I think I’ve “lost that loving feeling”. Maybe today on the way home – I will be able to find it – without a big honkin pack on my back!
The Ugly: I really didn’t have a good weekend of eating. Well – let me rephrase that, I ate pretty well…. which isn’t good. Too much grazing at parties, too much blind eating. Kind of depressing – but it is what it is! It’s only 1 weekend and it doesn’t erase all the other good efforts.
The New: The item of the week is not food or exercise related – but life related. I’m going to pay closer attention to traffic laws. That may sound a little odd but I speed. On a bicycle, I “california stop”, I take some “grey area” short-cuts and stuff. I’m going to pay closer attention to the speedlimit and try to slow things down a bit. I’m sure I wont be perfect on this – but I think it’s a good idea on MANY levels. (Save gas, be safer, less strain on car, less stress)
Tomorrow is Walk To School Wednesday! Looking forward to our walk!
