131 days to go: we’ll call it cross-training

I had every intention of getting on my bike this morning. I woke up feeling a bit…um…dehydrated. But I was still game. The plan was to just get out for half an hour on my mountain bike to start getting my butt conditioned for sitting in a saddle again.

When I looked out the window I was happy to see it wasn’t raining. But of course we live in Victoria and five minutes later it was raining. Sideways. Not so good for a bike ride. I thought maybe I could run instead. Then it stopped raining and the sun came out. Then it started raining again. I was just about to get ready when Greg suggested an alternate plan. He asked if I was still going out, and my answer was yes, but that I was still deciding what sport I was doing.

We had been planning to take the kids swimming, so when Greg suggested I head down to the pool a few minutes ahead of him and the kids and get some swimming in, that’s what I did. I swam 750 metres before they arrived, and then we had a great time playing together.

So. Have signed up for a 90 km bike ride and still haven’t been on my bike yet. But I had a good time with my kids. 🙂

My plan for this coming week is to get out twice for half an hour, and also visit a couple of bike shops to start checking out new bikes. At least it’s a start.
