Okay, not on the road traveling per se – but the bikes are out!
First off, though – must get to the important breakfast stuff. Banana custard oats topped with pecan butter and strawberry all fruit.
Delish! I did a little less oats to see what would happen and it was kind of like pudding. No running today because of the ride later. And the blogger run day is on Sunday, btw… 😳
We decided to bike to lunch today, since it was going to be in the low to mid 40s! Still a little brisk, but you all know if it is above 40, I’ll go. I was a little worried for John because he has not been doing as much as I have during the winter, but he did pretty well 😀
Filling up the tires:
It was all road riding because the bike path is still covered in snow. It’s 8 miles each way to get to Panera Bread, so a good ride! I was hangry by the time we got there, though. We had to stop a couple times for adjustments. The first ride of the season doesn’t always go smoothly.
I had clam chowder and a tomato/mozzarella sammie:
Yum! My date (also yum..):
Me with helmet head:
I so missed riding! I run a lot now, but if you asked me to choose between running and biking, I would be pedaling away before you could even finish the sentence. The ride home was a little harder as there was a bit of a head wind, and my sit bones were starting to get a little sore. Did a lot of standing up for the last couple miles 🙂 Legs felt really good, though. Total miles: 16, average of 12 mph. Good first season ride!
I got a little chilled, so I needed a good warmup of a latte:
That’s cinnamon on top.
We were pretty lazy for the rest of the day. Then it was time for dinner. Still using up those potatoes! I did one kind of like the other night, but it was a white potato with some laughing cow cheese and BBQ chicken. Really good!
Did some grocery shopping tonight since we are going someplace farther away for bagels tomorrow. Now I am ready to have some snacks and movie time!
Question: Any good plans for this weekend?
