I did 49 miles in training this week. I was so excited I had a beer with my post run breakfast after my 20 minute cold shower/bath. It really is recovery food!
The 'Boss" once again got on the bike
and did circles around me and accompanied me on the "farm run". Too bad that g#$@%^$%amned wind was up again. I could see the heart rate stats from Garmin go up about every place the wind picked up or anytime I tried to converse with the "Boss". I think there is a lesson there somewhere :).
So todays other big news, my Tulips are poking thru the mulch and I actually have a couple of flowers blooming. Yay....I love gardening and flowers and crap...Chris will probably take me off the Manly Man follower list but hey, that's who I am.
Reminded of an incident that happened with son "B" when he was a little guy (about 10-12 years ago). We were at a mall, just him and I and I bought him an ice cream. He sat very politely on the bench and finished his ice cream and got cleaned up real well. On the otherside (behind us) of the bench, an old lady was sitting there (she must have been about 80). My lad stood up on the bench and went over and tapped her on the shoulder. She turned around and he gave her a big hug and a kiss. Her comment.....
"Oh my, it has been such along time since I was kissed by such a handsome young man!!"
It was one of the most spontaneous things I have ever seen in my life. He is still a play fair and everybody is included kinda kid. Maybe it is the month of April but it seems spring brings out the best of everybody.
Have a great week folks, enjoy your miles and hopefully some sunshine!
When was the last time you did something just for the hell of it?
