At 5:30 the alarm went off this morning as does every weekday morning and I'm lying in bed contemplating getting up and getting out for my ride on Ruby really EARLY.
I use to get up at the butt crack of dawn and ride my mountain bike around the bay, which is a nice 10K loop, with a few rolling hills and great scenery of the Ottawa River. It really is very nice, but for some reason over the past few years I stopped doing it. In fact, since the beginning of 2009 I've stopped doing a lot of things. There is absolutely no reason why I can't get back into this little habit, it in fact would be really good for me if I did. Note to self, get your lazy A$$ in gear. Am I suffering from *Agoraphobia?
*From the Greek words Αγορά (Agora, public place, often a marketplace), and Φοβία (Phobia, an intense often irrational fear). It is actually a fear of all open, public places, especially crowded places. Victims could even find leaving their secured environment (house), physically impossible. As they may experience drowsiness and often loose consciousness.
Well, I haven't consciously lost consciousness, nor am I any more dopey or drowsier than normal. Who knows, but it something to contemplate. LOL.
This weekend was our first full weekend of nice weather. Unbelievable, we actually hit "average" temperatures, two days in a row! How freeking great is that?? Geezzzz, someone please tell the weather gods that I need my sunshine and warmth, paaaallleeezzzzzzzzzz!
On the running front, well, I need to find my reason to run again. I'm missing it and need to shake it up a little. It is hard when you have no real goal. I've never really been one to set goals, but I need to set one now.
So, here goes....whether I walk it or run / walk it, I'm going to register for the Canadian Army Run
Half Marathon in September.
I'll do a few little 5K and 10K over the summer and work towards the half. Nothing like setting the bar really high, but what the heck, you got to set a goal don't you!
Life's fun if you don't weaken,
