It was another beautiful sunny day in the Seattle area so what did I do? Posthaste to the trails for some cycling.
Cycling is the ONLY exercise I can say that I truly love! Except when it's raining than I don't like it so much, but on a sunny day – it's the perfect mix to get outdoors, enjoy the scenery, and get in some exercise.
Lily and I headed for the trails with our lovely new bicycle trailer and caught another head wind this time around. I was really enjoying people on the trails and the nature so before I knew it – I was 5 miles into the ride before I turned around to come back – because ya know it's another 5 miles back.
I didn't want to overdo it.
We found a great park on the trail and decided to stop and lay in the grass, soak up the sunshine and have a little snack. I ate some Ideal Protein peanut butter soy puffs and Lily had a few lamb treats herself.
There was a Tour de Cure going on at this park as the pit stop so it was fun to watch the other cyclists come in with volunteers ringing bells of congratulations.
I met two ladies along the way who were completing their last 6 miles of a 60 mile ride – it was only 11 am so they must have gotten started early.
As I was riding back, I wanted to ride a bit more as I passed by the parking lot with my car so we continued on another mile and half and then I decided to turn around. I could feel my knees were starting to get a bit jello-ey (I doubt that's in Merriam Websters dictionary but my definition is: wobbly, weak, and not feeling real good at the moment, mushy) so we headed back to the car.
Total trip was 12.9 miles.
Such a fun day!
Afterwards I stopped by the Thrift Store to drop off a huge bag of my “chubby chick” clothes.
What a great day!
