After reading the weather forecast last night I fully expected to see some snow on the ground when I got up. I got up at 4:00 a.m., and it hadn’t even started snowing yet.
By the time I was heading out the door at 5:15 or so the snow was coming down. I rode to the YMCA and got in a small amount of exercise before heading to work. There was some snow on the ground by then. I was surprised that my bike was one of four in the parking garage when I was leaving. Notice the XtraCycle on the far-right.
During the day we got a couple of inches of snow. The main roads were kept clear and the warm-ish temperatures meant that nothing iced up (on the roads I was on).
My commute home was pretty uneventful, but the dogs seemed happy to play in the snow when I got home.
Notice all of the "luggage" on the bike. Commuting and a stop at the Y means I get to carry more stuff. There is a thermos for coffee buried in there to cut back on the expense of the coffee shop.
Now that I’m home, I need to get to sleep so I can get up at 4:00 a.m. again, but I’m not sleepy. I’m considering walking to go out to dinner. I’ll overeat, but a full belly might be what I need to sleep well tonight.

Excellent! You are taking this training seriously. I like that. I keep meaning to do some brevet training but opportunities have been few and far between. Mostly because of my schedule.
I wasn’t too serious today. I bailed early on the spin class (those women are MEAN!). I swam only a little, and skipped the weights. Yesterday was much more effort, but I’m still sore from yesterday.
Getting up early is the hardest part though. I also have a new project at work that’s been keeping me busy and adding to my stress level.
I did avoid overeating tonight. I was going to go out, but had a peanut-butter sandwich and a banana instead.
Congrats on the 4.00. I know that is tough stuff. If I get up that early I want to go to bed at 8.00.
Getting up at 4:00 is hard. I’ve done it three days in a row now. I get to do it again tomorrow. I have a 6:30 appointment with a “wellness coach”.
Friday is supposed to be a rest day, but I’m still going to get up early so I don’t throw my schedule off.
After a few months, I’ll be a morning person… or something.
I think we could always use a wellness coach. Sounds like a good track.
