    I did a Map My Ride of yesterday's bike ride.

    ..45+ miles with a backpack. I'm feeling it today, but I feel good about the mileage I covered. I also had the chance to get more of a feel of where my bike needs to be tuned up during shifting. I have a window of opportunity to bring her in before my duathlon at the end of April...

    I wasn't going to go to kickboxing tonight.

    I was feeling a wee bit ornery about short- and long-term projects on my list which is a sure sign for a much-needed workout. I pulled up my big girl panties, changed and went to the last class available for the night. I'm glad I did. Our instructor smiled the entire time and...
