Townie Tuesday!

I took on anemone58 's challenge to join her on Townie Tuesday- anywhere we are. I love it! It wasn't my best ride, my longest or most enjoyable ride but it felt right- like it was Townie Tuesday. My husband and I rode 8 miles to a regional park on some great bike trails and we went late enough that the heat and humidity was subsiding and even felt a cool breeze down the hills.

I could also call this Triathlon Tuesday because in addition to riding my bike, I swam a half mile and walked (no running though) four miles. 

How was YOUR Townie Tuesday?

That is great! I didn't participate. It was 94, high humidity and Orange Level air quality. On top of everything else going on. I'm hoping next week I can participate too!

I'll have to ride next Tuesday after getting back from bringing L to college. I'll need the comradery of all of you. I hope the air quality is better for you soon. Did the rain come?

Yes! It finally rained this morning and the temps have dropped more than 10 degrees from yesterday. It is actually nice outside. I am hoping to ride tomorrow.

Oh well done!
Excellent triathalon too. I don't think we need to be running at middle age anyway - too easy to do an injury and then you can't do anything. Far better to take it easy for longevity.

I love you, Lisa. I've been feeling like I should take on a new challenge and thought I'd try a short triathlon. Running is the one thing I've never liked and I was thinking I should take on the challenge. Maybe not. :-)

And injuries can affect your mental health too!

You go Joan!!! That's awesome!
Thank you for riding with us :) (at least on the same day, different locations)

We had a good Townie Tuesday tonight! Six of us!
And a friend I used to work with saw all my postings on Facebook...thought it looked like fun, e-mailed me about getting a Townie and the next day she got one.

She rode with us tonight and it was the first time in 30 years!! She did great.

I have a big warm fuzzy!!!!

GOOD JOB!

That's awesome! How many Townie purchases have you influenced now? You are inspirational!

I think virtual Townie Tuesday will be BIG!

I didn't make it out for a ride, but I did go to Pilates. I have been kind of down lately, a bike ride would probably fix that. I should try for tomorrow! :)

My SIL showed up for our ride last night...I didn't know she was coming. They had a particularly tough day and she said...the ride did her wonders.

I hope you are feeling better soon!

Pilates is a great choice- just being active when we least feel like being active is such a good choice. I hope to see you next Tuesday- which happens to be the day we move our daughter to college. I'll need Townie Tuesday.

I'd love to do Pilates? Do you enjoy it?

I really enjoy it! I find I feel much stronger, and the teacher is really good. I only started a few months ago but I'm glad I tried it. :)
