It's like I biked to the moon....and back
Red shoes are perfect for Friday.
Well, that’s what it feels like today. I mapped out my route which works out to 23.6 km each way to work so I have biked approximately 184 km this week which explains why I almost gave up half way to work this morning. I had it all worked out. I would stop and lay down on a bench (thank you City of Ottawa for putting so many of them along the canal). I just needed to find the perfect bench with a great view for when I woke up. I would call into work and say that I was “under the weather” (well, laying under the clouds counts, doesn’t it?). After a nap I would either bike very slowly home or even walk. Walking couldn’t be so hard, right? By the time I had this all figured out I was almost downtown so here I sit at my desk. I don’t normally have cereal for breakfast but had to this morning. Needed some carbs. This is what I really wanted.
I am almost fearful of my ride home today but will fortify myself with some more carbs for lunch (healthy eating be damned‼) and since I don’t have to be home at a specific time I don’t have to rush so if I get home at midnight, well so be it. Mind you, I feel pretty lame biking leisurely when people are whizzing past me. This morning I felt like such an old lady because everyone whizzed past me.
Navy uniforms are a personal favourite which we won’t see but I thought I’d share anyways.
