I didn’t plan on taking it easy today but it couldn’t be helped. When I woke up the plan was to ride 15-20 miles while ending up at my parents place to drive my dad to his physio. All ready so I go to grab the bike and see the front tire is flat! So much for that plan. Instead I decide to squeeze in a 5 mile run instead. Again I couldn’t run the whole distance. Just not there mentally lately. With about 6 walking breaks I finished the 5 miles in 52:11.69
While my dad was at his physio appointment I took all 3 of my bikes to the bike shop. 2 of the 3 were cheap enough fixes so I left them to get fixed. I figured I’d be without a bike till next week but they called me late this afternoon to tell me the one I wanted fixed first was ready. $45 for a new front tire and tube and fixing the crank gears isn’t too bad. Guess I’m going for a ride tomorrow night!
I had thought of running again after my dad’s physio but decided I better not as my men’s night golf started tonight. I was right too as one run and 9 holes of golf and my heel is saying enough. Men’s night is not my favourite way to golf but my team members are pretty good guys and it gets me out of the house each week for 5 months. I started playing with them 2 summers ago when I started putting the weight back on and needed a reason to get my butt off the couch. Tonight we played pretty well considering it was the first bit of golf for 4 of us 6. We’ll find out next week how we did overall but tonight as a team we were 2 under par.
I was going to post a pic of my new hairdo last night but thought I better make sure it actually turned out alright. My dad is the first person who saw me since I cut it and he said it was alright. After he said that I told him I cut it and he just laughed. I explained it seemed wrong giving someone $20 for what I could do myself. Here’s a before and after pic. In one of them you’ll see I bought a mirror today for the next time I cut my hair.
