So I didn't manage to make a repeat of the 5:30 AM wake up today but I think I got up early enough to fit in my double workout and GNO tonight, we shall see.
I am super glad I got out with my TJ Maxx bag yesterday morning because it was sunny for my ride home (Sans backpack)! Only a few issues on the ride back. Had to stop and get off the bike when I hit the bike trail because of oncoming traffic and a huge pothole. I decided to get a drink while I was stopped anyways and the top came completely off the drink spilling juice all over my handlebars. I couldn't fix the top so that water bottle is done!
The only other thing was Marginal Road which as my husband says is a marginal road. It is freaking bumpy and painful! I am amazed I didn't get a flat last night. I am sure that there is no flat roads for me to commute the whole way on though so I will just suffer through those 4 or so miles.
Once I was beyond that I had a good ride. I was able to ride slightly faster on the way back and made it home in about 50 minutes. Only 20 more minutes than if I were to drive!
Helped David cook dinner and then we went out for a quick walk/jog before the storms hit again. The mayflies are out in full force. David was getting the worst of it, I think he ate a few in addition to taking a few to the face. I just kept getting nailed by those little helicopter seeds. Man those thing hurt when they come at you full force. So it was an odd walk. We didn't talk much for fear of the mayflies. They were all over our door when we got back so now in addition to a little ant problem we will be dealing with mayflies too. Wonderful.
Have I mentioned I am not a fan of bugs? But the good news is that there are spiders all over the outside of the house too, and they will eat the mayflies. Uggh I hate spiders too!
