And on Monday he decided to rest

I had a rough time waking up this morning. Even though I decided to take today off to rest I was still going to bike to/from work. However, when the alarm went off I reached over and turned it off. Lid there for a few minutes before rolling over and asking Mel for a drive to work. I was so tired and so not motivated to ride today. Thankfully she agreed!

Nothing much planned for today other than a few minor house projects and some sorting. We are unpacked and straighten away for the most part but there are still some odds and ends to tie up.

Been doing a little course review for this weekend's half mary and are getting both excited/nervous for the first race of the season! For all of my races I post little signs of goals I have for that particular race at work and home. I do this to keep myself on track when motivation starts to wane. For this one I have a time/pace goal. This one is a little bit of a stretch for me but I am going to hold onto the pace as long as I can until the wheels start to fall off!

Happy Carpet Day my friends! (Turkmenistan)

Something is wrong with the photos. The times and pace are censored. Smart move to get a ride to work. We're getting to the season where we get beautiful weather all day, then hard rain or even a thunderstorm during rush hour, then a nice evening. Welcome to bike commuting.
