Saturday - No charts

Yes, I got up early on a Saturday and got out for a bike ride. I got out the door at about 5:45 and it was actually chilly at that time. So far my longest ride has only been 13 miles and I was thinking of going closer to 18 today. But about a half a mile into the ride I realized I had nothing to eat at home and had nothing other than Cytomax in my water bottle. So I was just going to see how far I could go but not push to hard.

Then right about 1 mile into the ride I see my Garmin say low battery, and the next time I look down it was off. Yes it does work great when it is fully charged but won't work at all if not. My fault for not charging. So now I have two strikes against me. One more strike and I am out.

Ride was going great other than not knowing how far or how long I am out there. The real cool thing is that the route I took today actually had me in 3 different towns. I live in Williamstown and I went into Clayton, and then Glassboro. So got home and checked and I was out for just under an hour and checked the route on the computer and did 14.75 miles. So if I had my Garmin I would have gone longer but oh well. The thing to focus on here is that I got up on a Saturday and got out of the house prior to 6am. That is an accomplishment let me tell you.

Have a great day.

Hey getting up early gives you more chance to do stuff with your kids anyway. Have a good weekend.

Getting up early and training is something I've NEVER done, which makes it one of my number one goals. First, though, I have to tackle my goal to stop procrastinating!

Ha! I turned mine on Sunday with 0hrs of battery life remaining. Coincidence? I think not. Conspiracy - most likely.
