My brain was complete mush yesterday.  Dunno why.  Maybe it's the restless sleep I've been getting lately.  Or the fact that I'm not eating throughout the day....

When I dropped off my wobbly rear wheel at The Cycle Path I couldn't remember my address...

I had to use google to figure it out!  

I hadn't checked the spokes on the wheel because I figured there would be some crazy tension (or rather, non-tension) going on since it was out of true, but when Mark was looking at it I realized how bad it was!!  One spoke was so loose it might as well not have even been attached to the rim!!  Hopefully it will be an easy retensioning/replacing spokes and there is no damage to the rim.

Annie caught me asleep the first (of many) time

Believe it or not, I was STARVING when I got home.  Annie got home soon after me so we went to the Teets to get something for dinner.  I grabbed a premade wrap while I was there.  I scarfed it down when I got home and then that was pretty much it.  I fell asleep on the double wide chair - it's legit!  I woke up at one point with Annie wanting to watch Survivor, but I couldn't do it.  I dragged my ass to bed.  No bike ride on the final day of April.

Am I sad about that?  Not really.  I had way too many "rides" consisting of a couple of minutes or less on the trainer, so it would have been somewhat of a hollow accomplishment.  I know that there was no definition of what constituted being on your bike, so everything counted.  But whatever.  I'm glad that I did actually ride my bike to do things that I normally wouldn't have done, so in a very real sense, the challenge accomplished it's mission - as I will continue to ride to the store, events, meetings, etc whenever possible.

footnote.  The Cycle Path has a .net website - how awesome is that!?  I didn't even know those still existed!
