Happy 1st Day of Bike Month!

Riding the fatties! (Son's bike.)
It feels great to be training again!

Yesterday was really windy, so I decided to suck it up and do 45 minutes on the trainer, QC, and then a short run outside. It actually felt quite good. It is so nice to start your day off with exercise. Work seems a lot more manageable to me that way. Getting my workout done in the morning also alleviates unneeded anxiety. (I tend to worry that I won't get my workout in, until I actually do get it in. It kinda sucks...)

Girlfriend labor.. (he did give me a cookie.)

Today, Jesse took me to work with him. One of his larger bike repair/tune accounts downtown had some bikes in need of some work done, so after having some tea, we headed over. Normally he doesn't go down there on Tuesdays, so this was a real treat for me to be able to tag along. Jess is very good at what he does. He knows bikes in and out, how to fix them, how to tweak them to make them just right. I am good at cleaning cassettes and cranks and wheels and frames. lol I think we made a good team today!

After we finished the bikes and returned them to their happy owners, we headed to the Y. I shortened my pool workout a bit, but still got a good one in. Jess did some swimming too...and some kick drills! After that, we ran. I ran 3.5 miles, (I think Jess might have gone further.) :)

Happy first day of Bike Month everyone!

Here's a fun bike video 'just cuz.' (Awesome find, Jess.)


  1. Wow how cool do you look on a mountain bike?!....am I getting to you yet? Lol

    1. It was very bouncy! I was a kick riding around the parking lot. I'd love to try actual trails, but I don't have anyone to go with! I think I'd also have to switch out those goofy bar pedals too... I can just see myself scraping the hell outta my leg on one of those!

  2. It* was a kick riding around the parking lot. ;)
