Welp, another work day down.
Do you feel a recurring theme here? I’m forever counting down until the weekend. I live for the weekend.
I’m feeling some soreness from physical therapy yesterday so I decided that today would be a cross training day. A cardio DVD did not sound appealing at all, plus, the weather is SO nice here right now I couldn’t stay inside. Have to take advantage of every ounce of nice weather that we get from May – December, so I headed out for a bike ride.
I haven’t ridden a bike in at least 6 months. Oh dear. I believe my butt and quads will be feeling it tomorrow. It was a nice ride except for the 15mph headwind that was coming at me in all directions. I swear no matter what direction I rode in it felt like the head wind was just beating me.
The other problem is the lack of people that have any respect for cyclists (which I don’t consider myself a cyclist by any stretch of the imagination, but it sounds better than “people on bikes.”)… One jackass was riding in the middle of the road then I swear as soon as he saw me he got back in his lane and gave me absolutely no room. jerk.
These people are crazy around here and there are no sidewalks for the most park. It’s 1/2mi from my house to the closest sidewalk. Which doesn’t sound like a lot, but it’s the main road in and out of our neighborhood, and it goes by the boatramp/shrimp docks.. and those people are nutso.
I admit that when I lived in Clermont it was really frustrating to be driving down the road and be blocked by cyclists. I’ve yelled (to myself) at one or two of them. This was before I was a runner; I have so much more respect for cyclists, and runners now. (Clermont is a GIGANTIC cyclist town and sometimes they would be out by the 100’s)
Not really all that spectacular, but I’ll take it.
While I was out I rode over to the house my Dad is building. This thing is MASSIVE.

heck no. I couldn’t be sittin’ on the edge like that.

I might have freaked out a little when I had to go down that ladder. Going up was easy. The down was a little scary. My Dad thought this was pretty funny. I did not.
Tomorrow I have a conference from 9-3pm in Tampa. Uhm, I can’t say that I’m super excited about it, but it’s something different so I’ll take it.
