I wonder how many blog titles I’ve posted that involve me exercising for food?! My legs are sore after yesterday’s gym session so biking to work this morning felt great. Halfway there, the sun came out and I actually unzipped my jacket because I was overheating. Biking, rather than driving, really is a wonderful way to start a work day and I’m so glad that we live in a location that allows half my bike ride to be through the park and panhandle!
I came out of rehearsal this afternoon to see the fog rolling back in and within three blocks, I stopped to zip my jacket. It was chilly enough that I didn’t even overheat climbing the Alamo square hill, which was quite difficult considering the wind and the fact that I was wearing my very stylish but slick knee-high boots instead of bike shoes. Coming down the other side of the hill, I made a bee-line for the Chile Pie place, which is conveniently on my bike route! They were serving delicious chicken posole today so I ordered that and my favorite buttermilk lemon pie (forgetting that I’d been planning on skipping dairy today). I ate slowly, savoring eat bite, putting off the ride home. I think the only thing preventing me from doing this more frequently is the fact that the rest of my ride home in wind and fog is extra miserable on a full stomach, in a food stupor.
I did make it home, very slowly, and have just finished running errands. Time for a nice, hot bath!
the workout: 46 min ride, 7.6 miles
