Yesterday, the day after my first century ride, I got up at 4:30 and ran four miles. The first mile was 10:30, but then I woke up and the rest were in the 7:30 range. I went to work and had a rough day, I was flat and my students were nuts. After work I had an hour long meeting ... I think we planned the next meeting in that one. Then, I taught two classes for the community college, finishing up at 8:00 pm.
Today I sat in a meeting for two hours and didn't even get grouchy! That's a miracle or enormous proportions. The Pope should be notified!
During class today, I saw nearly instant karma. I was chastising a class, saying to the group, "This is stupid behavior." A girl said, kind of under her breath, "You're stupid." The funny thing is that when I checked my email after that period, I had an email from that girl's mother! How's that for timing?
And to make the experience better, look a the sky. What a place to live where I can ride all year long on nice, empty roads like this!
Tomorrow morning I'm going to do a running workout, 4 mile repeats, along with the normal calisthenics I do on run days.
I also decided, on today's ride, to shoot a couple of videos of what I spend hours at a time looking at. So, here they are:
