I should lift today according to the fuzzy schedule I made for myself last fall. This will work out fine actually. I was initially concerned with taking away 3 hours a week from riding in order to lift; however, I have a feeling this was a good use of my time.
More important than all this, Allison has shown an interest in riding (on something other than a tandem) for the first time ever. I had all but given up by the end of last year. I took Allie to the park near our house when I got home from work yesterday so she could ride her bike. I could tell she had a good time. Last night when I got home from my ride, Allie asked to ride around the garage since it is now empty, and it was dark outside. She can only make tight left hand turns so she went counter clockwise in the garage until I dragged her in at bedtime. She wasn’t ready to stop riding and said something mean under her breath. I was delighted.
