So I came home from Colorado to the sunny south…????
My minimum bicycling temperature is about 45 degrees, but sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do. So I bundled up in: sports bra, bike jersey, underarmor turtleneck, black pullover, Georgia hoodie, biking jacket, bike shorts, leggings, sweatpants, socks, bike shoes, headband, riding gloves, running gloves, helmet, sunglasses — I think that’s all. I waited til the warmest part of the day, 2:30ish and took off for the Greenway. I did the usual – Greenway, Battleground, new Gateway stretch, new stretch under Old Fort Parkway. I finished just about dark and by then it was FREEZING – fingers and toes numb, eyes watering (no ski goggles – they are in Colorado), face tingling, but workout was done!
No iPod – it doesn’t work well in this cold, but the song in my head was Winter Wonderland…
Thanks for reading!

I still say a day skiing is as good as a workout…..and I think there is a pair of goggles in the bottom of my dresser….or maybe up stairs…. anyway see you in a few days!!

You’d think you’d actually get HOT wearing all that and exercising. I guess convection really sucks.
Off to try out the fitness center of this nice hotel that my parents got for the week.
