Above are photos representative of my life since I returned.
Although I haven't biked much, I've been running a lot helped by the extra cool week we had. Two funny things. For most of the summer, in the school's parking lot, they have been having some sort of bicycle camp. Instead of having just 5 and 6 year olds, they seem to target older kids, preteens, and adults that for some reason never learned to ride. On graduation day, they slowly rode in a pack in matching tee shirts through our neighborhood into my running path.
Prideful Sue instantly corrected that with Runner Ahead! so the whole chain of them repeated that.
Sadly the truth is that some could probably walk faster that I run. Oh update! Steve has started running again!
Other funny thing: while running, an older man started honking for me to stop and rolled down his window to tell me he's been watching me for years and how much he admires me. That I have lost so much weight! yada, yada, yada.
Have I lost weight? Maybe, due to stress about that M and S house. Right after my bike ride though I went shopping for capris due to my DC trip and due to having none left. I sadly noted that I seemed to need a more ginormous size but Suck it up!Buttercup!, I needed pants. Then in the next 2 days, I shrunk peeing out all this water weight that my leg muscles retained from overuse. So now I have new pairs of very baggy pants. First world problems as they say.
But in the past, when I was obsessive about weighing myself (which if I were serious, I should start again), I was dismayed to find a similar weight GAIN after long trips of 400 miles! that should have resulted in a weight LOSS but no. But an amateur exercise physiologist friend of mind said this phenomenon is common and temporary.
Yet more storms are forecasted but will they come? I will spend the day chillaxin'.
