Ever have one of those days where you can never get started, and yet it feels like it won't ever end?
Yeah, that's today.
Started out dithering about whether to bike or not. The morning was nice enough, but the weather forecast was for incredible heat. By the time I decided that I really shouldn't do that, it was too late to work out. Having decided to wait until this evening to work out, I was going to take the bus. But then all that extra time disappeared and all of a sudden it was too late and I had to drive in.
Just haven't quite recovered since.
I've gotten a lot of work done, cleared two major projects off my desk, but instead of making the day go fast I feel like I've been here for a week. Part of it is that I still feel mildly punky - not exactly sick, but not exactly not. That never helps the day go by.
This weather is supposed to break tonight, and it should be nice and cool tomorrow. I'm looking forward to finishing out the week biking, before we're out of town for a week. I still want to make it to 1,000 miles on my bike this year. I am at 750, so I should be able to make it, even though school starting on August 22 cuts the riding season short - I can't bike to work on school days, because I can't carry my laptop, but I think I will try and do my Saturday class without the laptop so I can bike on Saturdays - it will give me more incentive to face a Saturday morning class.
I'm actually kind of excited about school starting.
