Back in the saddle

...you see what I did there?  Saddle?  Horse?  Meh......it was funny when I typed it.

Did lots of heavy lifting again this weekend at the BIL's house.  Installed flooring in his attic (which was around 198 degrees because it was 100 outside.  Lots of water weight loss....which I rehydrated with Bud Light later that night.

This morning did a quick 2 miles.  It's still flipping 85 degrees and 50% humidity in the mornings (which I know will be the temps in Houston in May.

Starting to build my base more....and adding in bodyweight exercises at night.  Going to be sore but going to have to push through.

Ever got "horse foot"?

Can't say I did much of anything.  Got lazy, got lazy....and got a little more lazy.

Started off this week pretty well.  Yesterday I did a 3 mile run.  Realized that my watch never started so I'm not sure of the time (it's my same 3 mile route, so I'm sure of the distance).  Not concerned now with time, as mentioned, but more mileage than anything.

Also....yesterday, I took J to riding lessons.  I never wear flippy-floppys there but decided to anyway.  Guess what stepped on my foot?  Not J....Not a dog....yup....a 1200lb horse.  Luckily, it wasn't hard, nothings broken, and there is just a contusion and some cuts on my foot.  Ahhh.....good times.  I can move my foot and toes without any pain and the only pain is from the small swelling.  Spent the rest of the day yesterday with ice on my foot.

This morning I did about 7 miles on the bike (damn snooze button).  Felt good.  Just need to get up earlier so I can put more time on the bike.
