I have been a bad blogger! I just realized that February had almost gotten away from me. I keep thinking to myself "Ooo, this would be a good moment to write a little post" but by the time I am settled with a computer, I have either forgotten, or I'm tired, or I have a ton of little work emails to respond to.
Let's hit the big points.
-The gym is going well, and I'm finding, as always, that I just work harder when there's an instructor telling me what to do. I push myself. I have only gotten one instructor I don't like and there's others who are lots of fun. A few have said that they've seen an improvement, so hopefully that muscle memory is coming right back.
-Work has been pretty busy. I'm hitting my third or so week in a row of not having my day off for various reasons, all of which are good reasons and none of which are truly life-or-death reasons. So I'm going to really focus on getting stuff this week so I can take my next day off… really OFF.
-I took my first bike ride on the W&OD trail yesterday. It was pretty fast and crowded. At one point, a guy on a decent road bike caught me and passed. So I decided to put up a chase. I never quite caught him… but I chased hard enough (and he knew he was being chased) that by the time we had to stop for a traffic light, he'd found himself in serious need of a hanky. Yes, it's gross. But it's also vindicating. Hey, athletes are gross, OK?
-My BMC gets a lot of attention round these parts. That is fun.
-Cooking has been going well. We've been downloading some of the recipes we like to cook together, so we have a pretty functional app by this point. I did, however, have a total screw up on the cake. Angel food cake pans, I guess, are not like bundts after all.
