core | errands by bike

Although I didn't sleep a ton last night it was very restful, that counts for a LOT.

I wasn't so motivated at the gym this AM and thus ditched the rehab/weights plan and just did my core routine. On the upside I felt super! No doubt being rested and not having just finished an exhausting rehab session helped too. Bottom line is today I was almost able to do all the core stuff I used to before my injury. Nice.

I had to take today off of work to run a bunch of errands and opted to do this on my bike as the weather was stellar. Shorts and short sleeves all the way baby. Of course not all the errands were fun...

It was surprisingly windy out today! But I was having a blast. I passed more than a couple of geared bikes going up and over Dexter and chased down another climbing up and through Discovery Park. You can take the rider out of the race but you can't take the racer out of the rider and all that... :)

The wind was at my back riding through Myrtle Edwards Park and I was flying. Love that. I went up to the Pike Place Market just for fun and was on and off sidewalks all day just having a good time. Urban riding at its best.

If you zoom WAY in you can even see where I rode along a narrow concrete divider instead of the bike path proper going home across the I-90 lid. And now that I zoom in I can even see where I had to paperboy it up S Irving St to get home. :)
