What’s in your basket?
As the Polar Vortex blasts across the Nation, plunging temperatures to record-breaking lows, I decided 1.) I am so NOT risking my life to go to work today (last big freeze I did and my truck slid backwards down a hill and into a ravine. Scariest moment of my life.), and 2.) I am too much of a wimp to run in a 15 below zero windchill. I’m from Texas, not Siberia.
So, being that today I’m supposed to be running 4 or 5 miles, and I don’t own a treadmill, I broke out the bike for the first time in…. in…. in…. Well, obviously too long to remember.
I put in an hour, mostly sans hands – a trick I have yet to master when cycling outside.
Daddy & baby girl (and all the dogs) got a good nap…
And I realized the basket on my bike seriously needs cleaning out. What’s inside my basket? VFF 5 Fingers, an empty Energy Chews package, 3 Gatorade Prime packets, 1 tennis ball, 1 pair of ear buds, 1 headband, several Christmas? cards from over a year ago, a piece of a notepad??, 2 GU Roctane packets (woohoo, I though I was out of GU!), the sports bra I thought I had lost, 2 pairs of socks I had given up on ever finding, and a retractable dog leash I didn’t even know we had. (The Starbucks cup doesn’t count since I put it in the basket just while cycling.)
So, tell me… Do you cross train? Do you cycle? What’s in YOUR basket?
