Adding in a Long Walk Home
Wednesday, September 18, 2013
So today was my third day this week biking home. And I was so dreading it because, honestly, I don't want to bike every..single..day. I love biking home but I guess I didn't really think it through when I agreed to do it most days. Before I was only biking on Mondays and Wednesdays and it was fun. Probably because I did something different on Tuesdays. Well this week DD started another class at college so I no longer have access to the car on any weekday except Friday (thank goodness!). I figured I would bike all 4 days and drive the last day. But today I woke up thinking - yuck I have to bike again. Well that's not good because I've made a commitment to not driving. So tomorrow I will attempt walking home. Not all the way at first, since it is 8-1/2 miles and that would take me probably 2 to 2-1/2 hours and I just don't want to invest all that time right now (though my step count would be outstanding). But a former student who is now dual-enrolled at college in the afternoon leaves school just about the same time I do and he has agreed to drop me part-way tomorrow so I can walk home. Now I'm excited again, probably because it will be something different. I just need to change-up my routine every couple days so I don't get bored. Bike a few days, walk a few days. Tomorrow I will find out how that will work out.
