Done before the sun

Sunday, September 30, 2012

So I've noticed over the last few days that I am able to do something that I have not been able to do in, I'll guess, well over a year. And that is WAKE UP in the morning. Since about Thursday I've been waking up regularly between about 4:30 and 5:30. Great during the work-week... not so much on the weekend.

But today I decided to make the most of being up at 5am on Sunday and get my bike workout in nice and early. It was pretty cool, figuratively and literally. I didn't have to deal with the mugginess of yesterday afternoon's weather. It was also so quiet, it was really nice. Plus the added bonus of not having to worry about what to do with my children while I go ride around. Eventhough it's easy to attach the bike-cart for my son, my 6 year old likes to ride her bike along too. But she takes "pit stops" every 2 minutes and obviously has trouble getting up and down hills. Soon enough she'll be able to keep up, but until then, I have to just do what I can and make the best of it.

So today I got in 5.58 miles, 32 minutes, average speed was 16.1kph. 4 laps around my apt. complex. The only thing I missed was the view of the golf course, but maybe my kiddos will want to go out for a walk later. THat might be nice :)

So far today I have 2 small victories:
-Down 1lb in week 1
-30 minute bike ride done before the sun even came up.

Let's all make today ridiculously amazing!
