So Far Away

The view from my office window.

Snow.

Somewhere around 10cm or so. Enough to push out the start date for outdoor riding from last year.

What was it like last year? Wonderful.

Yes. The high was 15 degrees Celsius. I started riding outdoors last year on March 17th. I could have gone out earlier. March 11 was also in the double digits however the roads were still pretty messy from the winter.

I’m starting to think that outdoor riding in March may not happen at all this year. The longer range forecast does not look very encouraging.

More time for me to be spinning indoors.

With a bit of time off for March break, I did not update the fitness log. I’ll keep that going until I get outside so it may be a few more weeks.

Here goes:

Yesterday was an off day. My personal trainer cancelled and I had a few things going on with my family that required some direct support. I missed a workout and, for some reason, I was really, really hungry. Funny how a 2,000 calorie day feels like a lot of food.

      You can see how crowded it is in the downtown core. Not sure what we would do without that traffic light. I think the city is going to add another one near the highway — perhaps even next year! 🙂
