Bikes and books make for an enjoyable evening

I get to go into the office late tomorrow. As in, I have permission from the boss to stroll in around 1 p.m. In the afternoon. Meaning I can sleep in.

But chances are, there will be no sleeping late for me.

I have a feeling that tonight will be a relatively early night. I'm shooting for 10:30 p.m., which would be impressive since I've been up since 4:45 a.m. Yes, you read that right, 4:45 in the morning. As in, it was just beginning to get light outside. Way too early for my tastes.

Since I had to be to work at 6 a.m., I was supposed to get out around 3ish, but that didn't happen as I left work around 4.

While it wasn't as scorching as it had been the last two days, it was still kind of warm and muggy outside. I wasn't planning on doing much when I got home other than sit and read a book. But it was kind of nice outside and my bike was calling my name. So I hopped on it and took off for an 8-mile ride into town along the lake. Afterwards, I sacked out on my porch with my book and read for a bit before heading in for the night.

Since I get to go in late tomorrow, I'm shooting for squeezing in a 4-mile run in the morning, and it'll have to be early since it's supposed to be a bit toasty again. I haven't decided if I'm going to run in the neighborhood or if I'm going to venture out to the Wiouwash trail. At the moment, I think the trail's calling my name. But we'll see.

That's too bad that you had to get up that early. It's not fun. I should know. I get up at 4:20 a.m. every weekday to go to work. Be glad you don't have to do that often!

Did you get your run in?

Yup :)

I lounged around in bed for a bit, got up, went running and came home and showered before heading into work in the afternoon.
