Winter is here...

OMG - it was FREEZING this morning on my way to work!  All my long trackie pants (all 2 pairs of them) are in the wash so I had to wear my 3/4 ones.  I forgot my gloves.  There were no clouds in the sky.  And it was COLD!  I think now that I am riding to work just about every day I need to invest in some more long trackies.

I am not as sore today as I was yesterday, but there is still one spot, back of my leg, just above my knees, that is really tight.  Should be alright for the Running Group tonight though.

Speaking of that.  I am terrified.  I don't want to go.  I want to hide in the corner and cross my arms and stomp my feet and say NO!  Luckily I am no long 2 years old and can move past that and will make myself go.  But I am terrified.  I have warned the coach how slow I am and he said I will be fine.  Yet terror prevails...

Quick update on my weekly goals I set for myself.

Cycling - 41.16/80 kms
Running - 0/60 mins
Other - 1/2 sessions

Not too bad so far.  I should hit all the goals by Sunday night I think.

Daily Goals
1)  Drink lots of water
2)  Don't buy any crap food
3)  Go to running group
4)  Get through my To Do List
5)  Have an early night

What you need lovely is a set of "skins" for the bike rides to work.
Like exercise thermals. The most awesome thing ever. I just wear shorts over the top.

Admittedly, I still ride with just the bike shorts on... but I run in skins and shorts :)

Jess, I'd love to run and ride in Skins, but alas, they do not make them in my size...

There are other brands on the market that are cheaper then skins Kylie and are in Bigger sizes, you can also buy the men one's and wear those (i need then for the length) you can try Diadora (I got mine in Melbourne when i was down there) full length one cost me $50 (and they have bike pants (short)too Jess for $30)instead of the $210 for skins - there are brands now in you local kmart and BigW too (Diadora in the men section of kmart) and slazenger in BigW. worth a look - ox Trace
