I woke up at around 4:15am this morning. I tried going back to sleep but it was a no go. It’s now 1 hour later and I’m wide awake. I think this is a good thing though. I’m going to use this opportunity to get my body used to waking up early for summer bike riding.
It’s not hot outside yet (even though my bedroom is hot) but I can see on this weeks forecast that it’s going to be in the 100’s this week. 99° today, 103° tomorrow, 101° on Monday then Tuesday and Wednesday are like 93° and 94°.
Right now it’s a nice 63° out but this is the perfect time to go riding. Today however is not a riding day. No, instead I’m going to take the bus this morning to the bike store to get some new pedals. While I’m there I’m going to see how much it would cost for a rack and if they have the grocery bags, if not then that’s fine, I will just get them from Nashbar. I may just get the rack from nashbar too if they are the same price as Snider’s.
While I’m out I’m going to see if the thrift store has any bike shorts. I doubt it but you never know. But I do need some other shorts to go on my ride with. I have 3 pairs of shorts that fit me but they all have their faults. One pair rubs against my knees, another pair is too light (it’s beige) and get dirty fast and the 3rd pair is just too freakishly big and will only stay on with a belt.
We have like maybe 10 more pairs of shorts but they fit me like 10 years ago (some 2 years ago) so they are obviously too small. I will eventually fit back into them as I lose weight but for now I have no options. I need to find at least 3 pair of black shorts that fit me that I can wear on the bike that aren’t too long, aren’t too wide and aren’t too white lol.
UGH! I’m starving so I’m gonna go get breakfast, make some coffee and start my day. I’m thinking about just buying the things I need on nashbars website instead of going to the bike store. Although, I still need pedals before tomorrow when I plan on riding again.
