I still got it. I have to thank my Daddy for teaching me how to change a tire as a prerequisite for getting my drivers license at 16. It's a skill that comes in very handy on mornings such as this- coming out to a pancaked tire. Yeah, I could've called roadside assistance but it's through my insurance company and I'm a bit apprehensive about using it. Don't need to give them any reason to raise my rates, am I right? Besides, by the time I would call the wrecker service, wait on them, and finally get to the tire store, I could've done it myself. And I did.
Meanwhile, my carpool friend made a house call today instead of our usually meeting place and my trainer picked me up to go workout. My friends are the best. I ended up with a whole new set. It was time. I was hoping to do it next month since that's the way I had it budgeted but oh well. All this put quite a damper on my schedule today. Wednesdays are always hard for me schedule-wise, especially now the school has started again. I'll probably have to make up for work on Sunday unless I buckle down and work 12 hours tomorrow. Heheh. We'll see, it might work.
For now, I'm sitting down for my big salad and a green tea latte. I wanted my quadruple espresso shot with steamed milk but I've been so good about laying off the coffee. It really aggravates my allergies no matter how good it feels going down. Today's salad was much like yesterday's but instead of kiwi, I used watermelon. Yum!
Although I'm pretty proficient at changing a car tire, I don't have a clue how to change my bike tire. After I acquire a new tube, my trainer is going to teach me. I'm ready to hit the trails again!
