The time change still had me a mess on Thursday. Despite being on time for class, I just never felt as good this week as I did the week before. The class was great and I enjoyed the workout, but I never got in sync. This was another big running class, and it had an outside portion as well. However, it was just a bit colder than last week, which wasn't any real problem after the first couple of laps. In the Afternoon, my wife and I went for a bike ride along one of Raleigh's Greenways that runs near our apartment. It runs from Meridith College to the NC Museum of Art, which is a really cool place to bike. The entire course is paved and takes you over several good sized hills; the course is 5.8 miles round trip from my door and has a lot of cool sculptures (like the one above) built in to the course. We couldn't have asked for a nicer day for this ride. Now that the weather has started to improve and my wife has a bicycle, I know that I will be much more active in the evenings after work and on the weekends, so I am hopeful that I will really start to see the pounds fall off as the warmer months. I can't think of a time since childhood where I have been looking forward to summer more.
