Yesterday was a really nice day, perfect for a jog down by the river. Didn't have much time but managed to get a short run done. Today, a complete opposite, plenty of time but an unseasonal cool day, wind from the SE, temp in low teens, could have rained any time.
The " boot camp" riders from work moved the weekly ride back to Thursday and 6 of us ventured out. Against the wind to the Gordon playground where we walked the steel rope at the rocket, did our sit ups, chin ups, climbed over the ladder, some managed to hang on to the monkey bars, slide down the slippery slide where some managed not to miss the pool of water at the bottom.
We rode our bikes up a few hills, the boys are getting better at riding but still complain. With the wind behind, great fun on the dirt at some speed.
A good cross training day, plenty of laughs, none of it serious but at least we get out and enjoy ourselves.
