Today I felt wiped out and exhausted. Why is it that the thought of doing something, is always more tiring than actually doing it? Before I left for my ride I thought it was going to be a battle today, but in actual fact, it turned out to be a lovely ride. We headed down our main drag, mainly because I'm trying to get a little traffic time in here and there, as I find it builds my confidence.
Our route took us past one of Jack's favorite spots in the whole wide world- the play ground.
We had so much fun today, we ran and ran! I honestly haven't had that much energy in ages, which is odd because, remember, before we left I felt exhausted!
I know this picture is very out of focus, but I had to include it, look at that halo of blond hair! I'd say he's officially over his fear of slides. Look too at what my bike has given me, sure I could drive to a park, but it's not the same is it? When you ride somewhere the fun begins when you leave your house, rather than at your destination. I know it all sounds like a cheesy sales pitch, but today I felt like one of those ridiculously happy parents in a children's commercial. Running in the field with my happy little boy and snapping pictures, tossing the bouncy ball around, catching him as he flies down the slide- seriously, and I actually thought I was too tired for a long ride and was just going to "get it over with".
So here we are a third of the way through the 30 days of biking and I am so happy that I decided to do this. I'm actually a little worried that May will be boring after all this fun, guess I'll just have to keep riding!
