WHOA!!!! A day off from running! Can you believe it? Yeah, me neither:) It was raining when my alarm went off and **gasp** guess what I did? I turned it off, rolled over and went back to sleep. BUT. It is hard for me to "sleep in", so I was soon up.

Today's workout was an hour of weights. I love to lift. I have had to drop my weight and move to higher reps. Still building muscle.

Then I needed to ride. I was stalling once again. I finally got butt on the saddle & started out. About mile 1.5, another cyclist rode up beside me and we rode together for the next hour. It was awesome! He pushed me (shh, don't tell my legs) and we talked on the down AND up hills. It was awesome! I was SO glad that I went riding! We had a great conversation about health, running, cycling and life. We were climbing a hill when his phone rang. To my surprise, he answered it and rode AND talked at the same time! I nearly fell off my bike from laughing when I heard him say "no, I am not in the office right now". If ONLY the caller could have seen where he was. It was priceless.

Anyway, note to self. There are going to be times when you don't feel like doing something. Do it anyway. You never know who you will meet to encourage you along the way!

Noted. Lesson learned!
