Daryl from twitter signed up. I have not done a ride on the trainer yet so the spin class was a great way to start. It's weird though, it feels like I'm riding on cobbles or something. Hopefully it's set up right. I got a bit nostalgic when I was taking George outside, I was wishing I was going to ride along the lake. I have one more week off so maybe it will be sunny and warm(er) one day this week, I've left the bike rack on my car just in case.
In other news the speedometer in my car is broken. I thought it was odd that it was reading over 140 while driving a main strip in town but I got really alarmed when I saw that I was going over 200km in a school zone!! I dropped the car off at Canadian Tire this morning, there was a huge lineup of people getting snow tires on, probably because it snowed yesterday. Now I wait for a call to find out how expensive this is going to be.
Bryan's got his slick new blog up and running and he added a forum section which is proving to be pretty funny already. Because I'm the queen of stupid I started a 30 day challenge. I need to face it, with the holidays and my birthday coming up I won't be able to eat perfectly but at least I can get my workouts in. I decided to do 30 workouts in 30 days so that I keep moving. Walking counts as a workout, the idea is to just get off the couch and make sure I keep getting off the couch over the holidays. My tattoo should be healed enough that I will be able to get back in the pool next week and I'm almost looking forward to a change of pace. Almost. The fasting part of the cleanse went out the window pretty quick but I have been eating smartly and am down about 4lbs which I'm really happy with. I'm going to keep eating well and try to keep the festivities to a minimum.
I won that contest through Emz's blog, I won the Punk Rock Racing shirt and it arrived in the mail this week!! I don't check my mail often enough but when I went by this morning it was there! It's awesome, I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT! It's my new kick ass training shirt and I can't wait to wear it. In fact I have a run to do today and it will be one of my layers.
I need to get to a running store and find out how to properly layer for cold weather running. Any and all suggestions and/or advice appreciated here.
That's all I got!
