So there we go folks, I am now the proud owner of a brand new bike. Calgary has a great system of bike paths so my goal is to commute into work via bike as often as possible during the week. There is a monster hill between the end of the bike path and my neighborhood so if I don't cycle in straight from my house I can at least drive down to Edworthy Park and cycle in from there if some days my legs aren't up for the climb. I also wanted a bike that would be usable for the day I want to branch out into duathlons and triathlons.
Anyhow...after all was said and done I wasn't sure whether to bag my run or not. My cough was feeling better but I sounded awful (hello laryngitis). I knew I would feel really disappointed if I didn't get any miles in over the weekend though, so at 7 pm I set out for my run. I must have managed to rehydrate well enough because the run went pretty well. Since I was running through my neighborhood it even came complete with some pretty good hills. I finished up, cooked up some rice and microwaved some albondigas and pretty well was out for the night after that. I'm definitely happy I didn't skip my run, and I cannot wait to take my bike out for a proper ride..!!
