Beth your son's colleges start early. Mine leaves on the 29th. I don't think empty nest syndrome will be an issue for me.
MCK Fishkill is not far from me. Hope your visit wasn't too trying
Natasha I get "lazy" too starting the thread. Mainly because I can just copy and paste my day from the one before lol
The bike ride was an adventure. Mishap 1, lost cue sheet with support vehicle phone number. Had the route on my phone and the pavement was marked, so I thought. Mishap 2 completely lost and missed the first rest stop which I actually needed due to mishap 3; a fall and a hard one at that. I was struggling on a large climb and desperately needed a gear change. Chain slipped and came off. Didn't panic as this sometimes happens. You just keep spinning your legs and it catches, well not this time. After I hit the ground and rolled myself to the side of the road to evaluate the bike I realized the bike needed professional attention. I did my best impression of McGuyver and managed to sort of fix the problem. Sadly this left me with three out of 21 gears to use. Mind you this was at mile 14 out of 60. Many dismounts due to steep hills (not falling again) I managed to detour myself to a shorter route to get back to my car. This plan was great until at mile 30 I was mentally and physically done. No rest stop resulted in not enough calories and my body was cramping big time, or maybe in pain from the fall. lol I broke down and called my knight in shining armor. Had a girly cry and Joe found me
Today I will take my bike to the shop for some much needed TLC. I hate giving up, but I am getting smarter and not pushing myself. I managed half of the ride on my own route, which may have been more challenging then the planned one. Hopefully the bike will be fixed soon and I can get another ride in later this week.
Today is just a normal day of errands and cleaning Whoo hoo Have a great day
