I woke up early and laid out the different outfits I would need throughout the day all in a row on the bed. I knew that there was a very good chance that time could be tight and that by the time I got home at the end of the day that I wouldn't want to have to dig around looking for clothes. What outfits were laid out?
Work........bicycling......zumba......clothes to sleep in.
I got off work and headed home. Todd had picked up lunch and we ate that. I caught up on the dishes and we headed out. We decided to ride on the Western Maryland Rail Trail today. It was fun. I took my road bike again. I figure to strip down the pain levels...so nice and flat, another great chance to get used to the differences of my road bike. My arms still took a beating but it's getting better.
On the bike ride I wiped out. I saw something I wanted to stop and see (I wanted to read a wayside...a bit about the history of that particular spot). I slammed on the breaks. I got my one foot out of the clip but the rush stop had thrown my balance off and I hopped across the path in a desperate attempt to remain upright. Duh, I was still clipped in on the left foot. In that moment I KNEW what was happening, but I just couldn't get my foot free! Down I went. My brother had told me to wear gloves all the time, for the padding, for the grip on the bike and to protect my hands. I have to say.....I was thankful that I had the gloves on. My hands landed on the pavement and there was no ill effect. I was fine. No injuries whatsoever. I picked myself back up and grinned back at Todd who was standing there with a dumbstruck look on his face. He quickly realized that I was ok and then proceeded to tell me that he wished he'd have caught that on video.....I have to say...too bad, it would have been a great addition to this blog!
We got to the car and headed home. We had to make quick stop at a store, but I was home in plenty of time. I quickly changed my clothes and with only a few moments of rest I headed back out. Why? Tonight was a zumbathon to raise money for a breast cancer organization. 2.5 hours of zumba! What fun!
Now I'm home and I will be the first to admit...I'm TIRED! But you know what...I SHOULD be tired. 4 hours of exercise is quite a bit of activity! That's not including the normal stuff like walking through a store, house work, etc etc etc!
I will stay away from the scales tomorrow. It was such a crazy day with excess exercise, excess water, etc etc etc. I don't want to see it. I will wait until it regulates!
What a FUN FUN FUN day!
