The weather has been absolutely beautiful for the past week. Sunny and in the upper 60’s to lower 70’s!
It’s been a busy but great week so far! I think I’ve finally got my running mojo back! I did a very small 5K race on Valentines Day~
Not my fastest, but not my slowest either. I did quite well for not running at all since the 4th. My leggies felt like jello the last mile & I was shaking after, but it was all good!
I guess that’s all it took to get my mojo back because I found a new trail to run on & it’s only a 6 minute drive from my house. Tuesday I ran 5 miles. I was diggin’ it, so I ran it again today! The hubby was intrigued so he asked if he could join me. I was happy he asked! 🙂 So he loaded up his bike & we were off.
Lately I’ve been thinking about riding my bike. I really want to exercise outside with my husband, so I got it out, dusted it off and my hubby replaced the tires on it. Then we went on a 2 mile ride with the family before dinner.
Mike found this on craigslist.com for me last spring for $30. Sweet!
I thought riding a bike would be a piece of cake compared to running, but uh well yeah, I was totally wrong. Man I got my butt kicked, but in a good way.
Mike was not diggin’ his racing bike today. So when I went to our local bike shop to get tires for mine, I noticed a used bike outside for sale. I told him about when I got home and he was interested. So we headed back to the bike shop. He liked the looks of it & took it for a test spin. When he got back he was totally liking it so he made the owner a deal. He ended up with this~
In exchange for his old one for only $20! Sweet!
Now that the weather is nice, it’s supposed to get cloudy & rain this weekend. 😦 Just in time for a 5K I have on Saturday. Oh well I’m happy to enjoy it while it lasts.
Off to take a bubble bath and relax for another active day tomorrow!
