The day started out with my internal alarm waking me at 4am. Now that has been three days this week that I have woken up between 4 and 430 without an alarm. The next time this happens, I am just going to get up and hit the gym at 5. Once I wake up like that, I don't sleep very well from then until my alarm goes off. My mind starts to wonder and I end up making mental notes of what needs to get done at work.
It felt like friday today and I was very disappointed to come to the realization that it was only thursday. The weather this morning was a chilly feeling with a bitter cold wind. Don't get me wrong, I love the change of seasons. It's one of my favorite reasons to live in the Midwest. The temperature is dropping, the colors will be changing, and the trees will start to become bare as the grass begins to turn from green to dark. Nothing far from a crispy, fall day.
This evening I made it to spin as scheduled. It had felt as if I hadn't been there in forever. It had been a week. Afterwards I got on the thrillmill and went at it. I wasn't too tired and still had some gas in the tank. I didn't have a plan as to how far I wanted to go. I got going and it took a few minutes to get my stride down, after being on the bike for almost an hour. But, I got into it and felt comfortable. As comfortable as one can be on that machine. I only did a very slow steady mile but it felt good.

one happy chica!
I can't believe I haven't realized how long I have had my current shoes. What the heck? I calculated that I have probably put 375 miles on these shoes running... more than I thought. Plus, I have worn them for spin over the past 11 months as well. Definitely time to purchase new ones.
Tomorrow ... is friday. And it's jeans day as well as favorite sports team t-shirt day. I suppose I should probably wash my Cuddyer shirt before tomorrow, huh?
