PM: 7 miles, averaged 11:39. HR 137.
I was planning to ride my fat bike on the dirt roads, but rain was supposed to come through and the roads were a bit muddy from some reports.
I haven't done much running lately (1-2 short 30-40' jogs) but my riding hours have increased a good bit over the last few weeks. I've mostly been on my fat bike exploring some new roads where we live (I decided, somewhat recklessly, to buy a fat bike with some money dad had given me and some extra generous birthday money he gave me). It's an amazing machine and I did some snow trail riding this winter and have been mostly on that, exploring dirt roads and trails. I have done one ride on my gravel bike outside (it's been on the trainer since October I think). I did a fair amount of riding since January. The basement setup has been pretty solid and I worked my way through several seasons of American Horror Story.
The boys turn 6 months old tomorrow. They are amazing. Challenging at times but very sweet and really developing their personalities and individual identitites.
My mom and sister are coming at the end of the week. My dad fell a few days ago and broke his hip. He had surgery and they needed to replace his hip replacement but they didn't for some reason. Megan's parents are also struggling with their health. I am not sure about how many classes I will have in the fall, so things have been a little tough lately, but I feel very fortunate for what I have and that the boys are healthy and that I am blessed to able to spend time with them.
Probably going to sneak in some more running/jogging this week as it looks like a good deal of rain and I have a lot of work to do (riding generally requires more time). I'm starting to get a really good sense of the area through my feet and my wheels.
School will be out in about 2 weeks, which will be nice but also nerve wracking. I'm trying to gigify myself, even signing up to be an Instacart shopper. Had to swallow a huge chunk of pride on that one, but it was easy to get hired and I know grocery stores very well. I am currently applying to a select few other jobs to keep my options open.
That more or less covers my blog hiatus . . .
