Another day done. Last night's workout was brutal. A migraine for two days and poor nutritional choices left me with little energy and lots of joint pain. Somehow I dug deep and made it through. I also recommitted myself to morning workouts.
Thankfully I woke up this morning migraine free. Still have a little food hangover, more stomach than head, but that will pass.

I am having to rely on ice or ice baths a lot. And I love them. I forgot to turn the real light on in the garage when I got in the tub this morning so I am sitting in the dark, listening to the sounds of the morning, blogging, and reflecting. Eerily peaceful. Great start to the day.

Check mark for the day.

Tonight DH and I made some time for ourselves. Usually our kids are running off in all directions and dragging us with them but not tonight. We made the oldest hang around to take the middle one to practice and also watch the youngest. We loaded up the bikes and went to ride a course my husband has been wanting to try. I ride a lot slower than he does but I want to get faster. Tonight was only my second time clipped in.

We got to the park and started to unload the bikes when DH noticed his cousins were right beside us. After chatting a little, we headed off. We rode up our first hill and got a glimpse of the windmill museum.


It was right before this photo op that we had to cross a big road. Of course i crashed. I was trying to re-clip and just went tumbling over to my clipped in side. I couldn't get out of the clip so i couldn't catch myself. My elbow and wrist took the blunt of the fall and my hip got in on the action as well. Nothing to do but keep going so off we went.

We rode by a small pond and I was passed by lots of cyclists. It was at this point I told my husband to ride on and we could meet up at the end of the next serious of small hills.



I ended up stopping on the other side of this pond (or lake). He rode around another time while I waited in the shade and drank my water. Then off we went again. Back around to pass the car and out the other side of the park. I only got in 7 miles but pretty good for my 2nd time on this bike.

The cousins were still there playing frisbee golf so DH went off with them and I came home to stretch and ice. I took another ice bath and iced my wrist. Hope I can get out of bed tomorrow.

20 year class reunion time. Not sure how I feel about that.

On another note, I have had a great week so far. I kept me sister's kids for a few days and tried to cram pack our days full of activities so I could still get my calorie burn in. I really enjoyed it.

Got my workout in this morning, thank goodness because my mom is making french toast!
