Ok so yes, I did a lot this weekend. I earned my rest day today!
Only pilates, and I'll be good after that. I promise! I didn't even
bike commute (thanks to an 8am meeting when I get here at 8:30 on the
But yeah, damn that was a great weekend!
Friday I extended the bike commute in to 17 miles on Friday morning, and then the regular 10 back, and then Pilates was so good that I'm going again tonight!
Awesome ride (about 55 miles)

we only got above water filming/analysis, but get to go back for the
other part on a date to be announced.
Sunday I slept in (got home a bit – or maybe very very very – late from

and thrilling mtn
bike ride (Claremont Hills Wilderness Park through to
Marshall Canyon). Good goood gooooood times!
So I definitely got in my workouts and my fun… and even managed sleep yet again! I'm getting good at the whole "weekends" part of life. Now if only some weekdays got converted to 'em as well…
