Two Flats

Happy Monday!  I hope you all had a great weekend!  Although my plans didn't go as expected, I enjoyed some (mostly) beautiful weather, while getting in some exercise and quality time with my family.

Friday night, I had almost no energy, but knew I needed to do something active.  Since it was raining and in the 50s, I decided I'd hit up the treadmill for a two mile run.  I started to run, but my back didn't feel so great.  I ended up doing a pretty killer walking incline workout which left me nice and sweaty after 35 minutes! 
Saturday, I had plans to ride with Alison, but when I woke up, it was pouring rain.  We decided to skip our ride and do our own workout.  I ended up going for a run around noon.  The sun came out about a mile into my run and it got very hot... and humid!  It felt more like August than May, but it felt good to feel the sun!  I covered 3.1 miles then cooled down with an ice cold smoothie.  I have seriously been craving smoothies lately!

Sunday morning I headed down to visit my parents for Mother's Day, as well as go for a bike ride with my sister.  Of course I had to stop at Marylou's for iced coffees!  My sister and I are both riding the PMC in August, so we thought we'd get in a training ride together.  Our ride didn't start off so great - When taking my bike out of my car, I caught the front wheel on something which caused the tube to pop.  Luckily, my sister knows how to change a flat, so she graciously gave me a tutorial as she changed the tube for me.  :)
We finally hit the road and shortly after the turnaround, I got...  another flat!  Awesome!  This time, I had no tube so I couldn't change my flat.  Luckily, we weren't far from my parent's house, so my dad came to pick me up and take me back to their house.  I didn't get in the 30 I was hoping for, but I at least got in 11.5 miles!

The rest of the afternoon was spent hanging with my family.  The weather was gorgeous and it was a nice way to celebrate Mother's Day.
Enjoy your day!
