Bright, Bright Sunshiny Day!

It's Monday and the sun is SHINING and it's above 70 degrees! I think this qualifies as a miracle? It's beautiful!

I cleaned up my bike yesterday; washed it with hot soapy water and sprayed it with the hose, oiled the gears and the chain and then went for a ride! The very first ride since I broke my leg in 2005! No joke! All the way to naked David park (Michaelangelo's David graces the riverside downtown. He's really not all that big in the men's department, if you wanted to know) and back to my house - about 45 minutes. I was a little wobbly at the beginning and I went slow, but it felt so good to be back in the saddle (ha!) again.

Here's me an the chicks!

And instead of going to Tallgrass for the first bonfire of the year, I stayed at home for some quiet time. I had been going, going, going with lots of face time this weekend. I need my alone time to recouperate. That's where I get my energy from - the quiet time. I really enjoy being around people, and I look forward to the social parts of my life. But it takes a couple of hours for me to calm down after a big event. I know. I'm a little weird in that department, but at least I know myself and take the steps I need to feel my best.

I understand the Importance of Downtime! I do the same thing. If I don't get that time, I go all sorts of ballistic.

Cute chicks (that includes you K8)!

I know what you mean about alone time & energizing. I think that's why I like the tri training.
