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.
