I finally took my bike out for a ride around the park. It was so much fun but two days later I was hurtin'..
I'll just say this: before I get back on that thing, I need a new seat.
I was a bit surprised at how easy it was to ride a road bike. I've never ridden one before so it was nice to see I could do it without a bunch of practice first. Other than some pain from the seat and a scratch on my leg from the pedal, I had a nice ride.
Last night we were kidless so I made something new (to us) for dinner.
Chicken Alfredo with spaghetti squash noodles! Our first spaghetti squash from the garden! It was delicious and very filling. I first saw the idea on Katie's page @ FromIcecreamToMarathon.
I googled the recipe and here's how it turned out:
Since we didn't have the kids this morning we went out for a run together on a new route. We ran around the junior college which is where we ran our first 5k together. (His first, my 2nd)
It was already warming up by the time we got out there (8am) but we only planned a couple miles. He actually stayed with me for the first mile then I told him he could go ahead if he really wanted to. I felt good at an 8:30 pace. He's the speedy one in this relationship..
We're running a 2 mile race on the 4th of July and we want to wear shirts that say something funny on the back. He came up with "I'm with the girl back there" and I'll wear one that says "I'm with the guy up there". Funny but I'd like to keep thinking of something else.. any ideas?
