Picking the good days to bike

Friday, June 28, 2013

This week it's all been about weather. The first day I backed out of... good call, I would have got rained on during the ride in. Yesterday I opted NOT to bike because of my sister's being in hospital, wanting to keep my options open... BUT, it was also a good call for weather on the morning commute... I got rained on between the car and the office.

So today, not in the forecast... figure I ride in today, and if I do it right, get a brick workout in with the ride home followed by a jog. Wish me the determination to get 'er done!

I did get by to visit my sis after work, to find her in good spirits and staying the extra night just to be monitored, but also because she's in the middle of painting at home. If she went home last night, she would have been pushing furniture around, knowing her! So, that, too was a good call on her part.

The Kelsey news, not as encouraging. They have gone back from sedation to paralysis meds, and an echocardiogram was "inconclusive". Prayers keeping up. I think I might need that jog.

The weekend ahead? I'll work a half day Saturday. Hope to get myself into a pool at least one day.

LIFE is good! What you bring to it is important: bring a good attitude, and the rest will work out. Spark on! emoticon

emoticon I hope that the Weather lets you get in those rides this week. Hopefully the Heat Wave won't get to you too badly.

    Sorry for Kelsey's relapse. It will be what it will be in the end. I am learning to push anxiety away for things I can't control. Not push them in, but away so I stay healthier too.

Enjoy your ride no matter the weather. Funny , I immediately envisioned the black and white Wizard of Oz scene with the witch on the bike in the air... and no you are not the witch, just thought of the weather. Ramblings of a distracted tired Sparker emoticon

    I have not yet tried the bikerack on my new car - it enables me to bring the bike with me and use it when possible..

Have the best day and good wishes for your sister!

    Keep on taking the best possible care of yourself -- during this really stressful stretch of your life. All best to Kelsey: continuing to beam healing thoughts.

    Way to go on figuring out the exercise while you have nothing but stressors wherever you turn: crummy weather, mandatory overtime, and worry about loved ones.

One day at a time.

    I hope you got your ride in today. Mine got canceled due to rain, and I still can't run or walk briskly. Fortunately, kettlebell swings, snatches, and cleans don't require me to flex my feet.

    While Kelsey's situation is discouraging, as I remember from our experience with this, there were ups and downs. Praying for an upward trend now.

I'm happy your sister is doing well.

Take care of yourself too.

    Oh my gosh, Barb, so sorry about Kelsey's news. Have to re-double the prayer efforts. Hugs and prayers too for your sister. Glad she made the decision she did.

And glad you're taking care of YOU!

HUGS and smiles, Barb. We're all with you.

    "What you bring to it is important: bring a good attitude, and the rest will work out." - Spoken like a true role model...
Checking in before heading out again - hope to see you soon.
