Monday after biking the kids to school, I had the grand plan to take the longer way home in order to not have to drag my bike over the tracks. Wonderful plan, I even got to coast down a huge hill. Except that as I neared the bottom of the hill, my brain came back awake and reminded my old, tired body that I would now have to bike back uphill to get home. Awesomesauce. After nearly dying (true story), I decided I was out of shape and from now on, would refrain from any more plans that took me further from home than needed. In the afternoon, I stayed the course and took the easy way home with the kids.
Distance: 4.86km Total: 4.86km
Thursday morning, I biked the kids to school and took a longer way home, despite my protests on Monday that longer was lamer.

I swear this is the last time I will bore you with this many map pictures. They're really more for me. I'm the sort of person who enjoys/needs the visual. Makes me want to pat myself on the back ya know? Anyways, feel free to skip over these posts or emails, as I walk, bike or run myself through this summer and onto a different body.
I'll be keeping a running total in a different tab, Going Somewhere Slimmer, at the top of the blog. To keep me going.
Well that's the plan anyways.
