cardio | bike commute

My legs felt MUCH better this morning. Nice. And the sun is shining, time for the long commute home. :)
In the gym I hit the elliptical trainer again (just because it seems like a safe, zero-impact way to bring the legs back I guess…) and right away my leg speed was climbing. I finished going faster than I have ever gone on this device. Wee.

Riding to work I finally felt good getting out of the saddle as opposed to a bag of wet cement like I did Monday. Nice.

Did I mention the sun was shining all damn day? It sure as hell was. Oh yeah, I did not sleep so hot but so what, the sun is out. On the way home I ran a bunch of errands and it was such a pleasure to get them done on the bike.
