    she didn't come out to build though, got stuck in traffic. yeah was cold and wet, really needed the fire to warm up. though the wet ground is very easy to work with.

    Thank goodness for gore-tex and warm gloves... although I would have preferred to do my hot yoga class

    The changing weather is inevitable: this morning I had to scrape the frost off the car windows. Looking forward to the weekend (its been a long week). Should be able to ride somewhere whether its wet or dry or cool.

    I for one have been kinda grateful for the crappy weather of the last few weeks. The baby has kept us fairly run off our feet so I haven't had to look out the window TOO longingly since he's arrived.

    However, we're starting to settle into a routine so I have a really good chance of resuming riding some time next week and I can hardly wait!

    you'll get the hang of it, the rides have to be savoured though...

    So far nap time has meant meal time or shower time. And on one glorious occasion, grocery time. I know it'll change, but I too am appreciating the crap weather. In truth, we did get out for a nice hike on Friday when Mr. Monster was working. I'm not allowed to drive for another month, so I'm pretty sure that means I shouldn't be riding a bike either...

    Take all the time you need. The body needs to recover.

    Truthfully, the fact that my time is so limited makes the 2 hours I spend riding my bike 2-3x per week, very rewarding. With 2 kids, spare time isn't something I come by easily.

    You'll likely ride a little less in the next few years, but when you do ride, you'll enjoy it so much it won't matter.

    So I finally got out for a ride last night. It wasn't much (just 20k out and back to City Hall for the Cycling Committee meeting) but it was glorious. The weather was impeccable. Even after dark, it was still plenty warm.

    That's officially 25 days off the bike, the longest stretch that I can remember!

    Take another 50 days off and then we can have an anti-race for my username. Fatty.
