A day of rest

Today was a rest day. I had a conference all day and didn't have to ride my bike. I got a ride to the conference and took the bus home. I also paid $11 for a hot dog for lunch. Because of all of this I decided to take today as a rest day. I want to work out regularly but I also don't want to overdo it. So I'm considering a 3 days on 1 day off schedule or something like it. I have to ride my bike everyday but I don't have to do my evening workout everyday. I don't want to burn out so I've decided to try and take it slow and do it the right way. The good part is that I really, really missed riding my bike today. That is a super good sign. I am looking forward to my ride tomorrow.

In other news, I got a new heart rate monitor. The pedometer thingee I have connects with a heart rate monitor. I have been riding my bike and working out and the pedometer indicates I haven't been working very hard. I figured it was because I ride the bike and it's hard for the pedometer to pick up. So I ordered the heart rate monitor strap to more accurately register my workouts. I remember why I don't like heart rate monitors. They are uncomfortable. But I can live with it.

Happy New Year

So here it is. 2018. We had some friends over last night and it was fun. Thankfully, everyone left by 10 pm and we headed to bed by 11 pm...
